After checking the weather forecasts for Walkerton and points between Metairie and Walkerton we decided that Sunday looks like the best day for the drive into Ontario. Hope the forecast holds true.

As we have six days to do a three day drive we decided to drive to Natchez Mississippi and poke along the Natchez Trace to Nashville. About 7 years ago we did this route but we were hauling a fifth wheel trailer so we didn't do a lot of poking.

First stop was a park in Vidalia, La, the town across the Mississippi River from Natchez. Seven years ago we stayed in an RV park that is part of the town park. I've always wanted to go back and walk along the Mississippi and see the barges.

Established by French colonists in 1716, Natchez is one of the oldest European settlements in the lower Mississippi River Valley. The strategic location of Natchez, on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi ensured that it would become a pivotal center of trade and commerce. Natchez is the southern terminus of the Natchez Trace.

There are some beautiful old buildings in Natchez.



Loved this yard.
