Plantation Life

Hello! Hope you’re all doing well.
I figured it was time to hobble together a post since it’s been how long since I’ve been here…a month? Yep, sad, but true. Anyway, I thought I’d show you a few photos I took while visiting a plantation in South Carolina earlier this summer.
There were a variety of things to do, but we pretty much just walked around taking in the sites, which basically consisted of the house, gardens and animals. If you minus out the fact that it felt like 842 degrees outside and that I found the way they cared for the majority of the animals disturbing, it was enjoyable.
Here’s a glimpse of the house.
There were paths that meandered through the gardens. Here and there, you’d find something interesting like this red bridge…
or this little gazebo. The minute my daughter laid eyes on this, she had to run over and check it out. I love the copper roof.
No matter where I visit, the animals are always bound to be my favorite part.
One thing I absolutely L.O.V.E about the south is all the moss that hangs from the trees. It looks so pretty when it’s blowing in the breeze.
Isn’t this a great rustic fence? Those two little dots off in the distance are a few ponies grazing.
Well, there you go. I guess I’m a woman of few words today.
Later gator πŸ™‚

    Yes, the moss and beautiful marshy flowers are some of my favorite things about the south. The heat I can do without though. πŸ™‚ Every time I'm there, I find a new place to explore…there just isn't history in Nebraska like there is in the south.

    *thank you so much for your thoughtful comment on my last post. It's been a hard year but sweet words like yours really bring me some peace.
