A Sugar Cane Plantation located in Valcherie, LA about half way between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. This home is over 200 years old, the "alley" of Live Oaks are over 300 years old. It sits right on the bank of the Mississippi River, as a matter of fact, I'm standing on the levee that separates the property from the river. Several movies have been filmed here... "North and South" and the Nora Roberts Novel made into a movie , "Midnight Bayou" was also filmed here along with several others...... David and I celebrated our 29th Wedding Anniversary this past weekend and spend some time here on this plantation!

    WOW!! This is so very beautiful!! I have read about these beautiful plantations and how they shipped the cotton via boat on the Mississippi. Sadly, lots of slaves were shipped the same way. I love the lines and repetition. You filled the fame with such beauty. Great shot and Happy Anniversay to you and David.
