  3. Isn't that gorgeous?! Of Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte fame, too. I thought it looked familiar so Googled. Secretly, I was hoping for Gone With the Wind, but the former's not so bad.

  6. My daughter and I toured Oak Alley about 5 years ago, along with two other plantations. It was so enjoyable! I hope you were able to have lunch at one of them.. Louisiana cooking is so delicious!

  10. I have a sudden urge to say "Y'all" whilst wearing a hoop skirt. Hey, while y'all are down south, have you watched "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" ?

  14. Love the beauty of this place! Can you believe I live in Louisiana and have not visited Oak Alley? Unbelievable, I know! Hope you enjoyed your visit in our state.

    Your earlier post and pics of the eagles in your backyard are amazing! Getting to snap those pics would be a dream come true for me!

  17. Vee- Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte was filmed at Houmas House Plantation just upriver from Oak Alley. In fact, they have a room called the Bette Davis room and it's where she slept while filming the movie.
