Country Fun Natchitoches Part II

I visited Melrose Plantation and had high expectations but was a little disappointed. There were a LOT of additions and changes to the property that made me feel I was experiencing a less than authentic plantation experience. The grounds are beautiful and located across from Cane River but I wish we’d toured the grounds only versus the entire plantation tour that was actually very boring.

Can you imagine having to pick hundreds of pounds of cotton daily?

 

A caterpillar is in my shirt! Ouch! Hold up, the country ain’t fun!

 

Love the greenery & country peacefulness.
