"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase" Martin Luther King Jr.
Pictures are of the San Francisco Plantation located on River Road, Garyville, Louisiana--my husband and I visited there last Friday and enjoyed it very much. This makes the third Plantation home we have visited on River Road! We have become River Road rats! If you ever get the chance to visit Louisiana, I highly recommend putting aside a few days of your trip to visit these old historic plantations located about thirty miles west of New Orleans.
There is something very special about visiting these old plantation homes--almost all of them with slave cottages behind or beside them.
I feel a sense of sadness when we go through them. I wonder about the hardships they had to endure. Not just the slaves but the plantation owners as well.
What a different time and place it was back then.
I am thankful though, for the here and now. I like my central air-conditioning and heating. I'm pretty fond of running water as well!
And what can I say...except, I'm pretty wild about indoor plumbing too!
Be blessed ya'll and have a great Thursday.
