Steve and I are planning a trip to Natchitoches next week.
Yes, I have called ahead this time to be sure The Pioneer Pub is open; what heartache last year!
I'm going to pull out all my brochures and things tonight and see what adventures we can get into this time. Last year we visited Oakland plantation and it was absolutely wonderful. I wouldn't mind doing that again, but we like to do something different each time we go.
I've never been to Melrose; it's a bit further down that river road than Oakland.
I'll definitely try to find some out of the way antique stops!
