While I was in New Orleans for the RT convention, I toured the Destrehan Plantation with a few of my friends. It was beautiful! Sadly, because of traffic, we missed the last guided tour of the day. It all worked out in the end, though. We let my friend, Debbie, a NO native, guide us around the plantation. She had been so often, she knew most of the history and was able to fill us in on the interesting bits.
I think this is my favorite picture of the bunch. The live oaks were gorgeous!
