A Southern Carriage tour was a lovely way to start our second day in Natchez. A warm spring morning to meander around a city filled with beautiful 300-year-old homes while learning a bit of colorful local history. What could be better? Remembering more would be good. We took photos of lovely homes & can only remember a few. Several of the old buildings are owned by the park service & are open as educational exhibits. The home of William Johnson, a freed slave, was amazing because 90% of it was just as he left it. The home was occupied by the family until purchased by the Nat Park Service. He kept diaries for 16 years that have been studies extensively. It was not uncommon for freed slaves to own slaves. Figure that one out…. Fascinating history, we have.
Once again, the afternoon erupted into violent thunderstorms after we reached home. It poured for five hours, so we nixed our evening plans for music & had a lovely time in la caravan.
