We chose today to head upriver a few miles along Jefferson Highway/River Road to the Destrehan Plantation. It’s the oldest documented plantation house in Louisiana and at one time was the center of a third of the wealth in Louisiana. It was pleasant touring this grand old home in the company of an antebellum costumed tour guide, learning some of the history of the era, tying that to events in Us and world history, enjoying the shade of centuries old live oak trees, and imagining life on a sugar plantation and sitting in the shade of the second floor outdoor gallery watching the traffic on the Mississippi River.

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
