Natchez, Mississippi – Day 15

Note: Mary flew from Baton Rouge Airport, Louisiana on March 12 to her home in California. I’m hoping to get her back with me by mid-April. My current plans are to drift SLOWLY north along the Mississippi River to Memphis, Tennessee where I’ll then turn northeast heading for New England for the Summer. Can’t go north too fast because it’s still cold up there! The Mississippi River is rich in history…I expect it to be an interesting passage.


The motorhome is still parked at the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge #1662 in Natchez, Mississippi. Yesterday’s forecasted thunderstorms never did happen. Morning fog hung around until late morning. Nice afternoon. I expect to leave Natchez today.

Natchez remained mostly undamaged from the Civil War. Hence this old city with its narrow and many one-way streets remains a beautiful city. To read about Natchez, click this link…,_Mississippi

Yesterday I posted an entry about the only antebellum home in Natchez that allows interior photography. It’s called the Auburn Museum and Antebellum Home…circa 1812. You can read about Auburn Museum and Antebellum Home by clicking their official website link…

If you missed my Blog entry of yesterday, here’s the link…

Besides allowing photography it is unique because it is the first of the many mansions in the Natchez antebellum period…it also has a freestanding wooden circular staircase…


You saw the above photo in yesterday’s entry. did not see the creative photography of this unique staircase. I love playing with my camera and one of the funnest things to photograph is patterns as shown in the below photos…

Here are some of the photos that I took…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…












Needing to get out of the motorhome for some fresh air and exercise, I decided to take the five-minute drive back across the Mississippi River to Vidalia, Louisiana and walk along the riverfront. Here I was able to photograph Natchez across the river and both bridges. Because of high noontime harsh sun which makes for flat photographs…I shot them in the watercolor mode which makes for a more enjoyable final result. I hope you enjoy them…

















So, yesterday was the final time to walk upon Louisiana soil for this year. Thanks for a great 2013 visit, Louisiana! It also completes a very enjoyable 15 day visit to the Natchez area. Thanks, Natchez!

Enjoying historic places is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows my approximate location in the State of Mississippi. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
