We had an uneventful drive to Natchez in Mississippi yesterday. It was only a couple of hours including the stop at a quilt shop we drove by accidentally. Alan spotted it and graciously turned the trailer around and went back. I got a great deal ($4.19/yard) on some Aunt Gracie’s that I will put on the back of my Chairman’s Challenge (if you have no idea what I’m talking about, you can check my other Blog!)
We had reservations for two nights here at Natchez State Park but after checking out the campground we decided to extend another night. The sites have nice, level concrete pads with big picnic tables Also, it is only $16/night – pretty cheap.
The campground only has 40 sites that are well separated from each other (except near the Lake where they are a little close together.) The one down side is they don’t have any hiking trails except for a short nature walk. They really should get some boy scouts out here to cut a trail or two. The roads make a nice loop so we will probably go for a ride tomorrow.
Today, we are off to town to check out some history and maybe an antebellum mansion or two.
