Natchez, Mississippi Day 2 (GA433)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Bow, Washington. I’ll depart here August 20th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted March 20, 2013…

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.

Yesterday, still a little tired from the previous day’s long hot and humid drive, I decided to have a shortened day out and about. First stop was at the Natchez Visitor Reception Center to pickup brochures and maps, both local and for my upcoming drive through western Mississippi to Memphis Tennessee.

 

 

It’s one of the largest visitors centers to which I’ve ever been. Including a 20 minute video entitled The Natchez Story, the center is a mini-museum itself, I was there for 1.5 hours.

Next stop was Bluff Park where, in the past, the wealthy built their homes for the scenic views across the Mississippi River of Vidalia, Louisiana, refreshing breezes and beautiful sunsets…

Then down to an area called Natchez under the hill. The river waterfront was the rougher, seedier part of town where the poorer folks located. Today, of course, its been cleaned up…
