Laura Plantation

source

I love all the rich and varied culture of Louisiana.  The plantations have always been a popular tourist attraction.  One of my favorite plantations is the Laura Plantation in Vacherie (pronounced: Vash er ree).  I like it so well because it isn't the "typical" plantation.  Thought y'all might enjoy some of the pictures I took on our last visit!

Have I ever mentioned how thankful I am for indoor plumbing?  Hope you enjoyed the tour!
