River Road Drive

We decided yesterday to take a drive along River Road. We drove up to Destrehan and looked at the plantation there; and, then, we went over the Luling Bridge to drive the River Road on the West Bank. We got up to Oak Alley Plantation and then drove back to the bridge by Gramercy and came down the East Bank side.

St. John The Baptist Church:

These buildings were right down the road from the church:

St. Joseph Plantation and its sister were used in the movie 12 Years A Slave:

We found this Chia Truck near Reserve:

The world's scariest day care was right next to the truck:

Something we learned on our drive: there is nowhere open to eat on River Road on a Sunday. Next time we will bring a picnic.
