Though I spent my first 17 years in Louisiana, and visited perhaps one or two plantations, I have never - up until my winter vacation 2011 - visited the [Hollywood]-infamous Oak Alley Plantation, or the Creole Laura Plantation. Here are photos of Oak Alley.
We got out of the city to the romantic Oak Alley Plantation, renowned for its row of 28 evenly spaced oak trees that welcomed guests and predate the home itself. The trees swept the ground, and I thought of Scarlett O'Hara's ...

Oak Alley Plantation Last week I was in New Orleans for Thanksgiving and I took a week off. And it was good. Tons of food and drink and great times. They say "Laissez les bons temps rouler" and boy did we!
