Field Trip

My local RWA chapter - HeartLA had a field trip planned to a plantation about an hour away from where we hold out meetings. This is something we've talked about on and off for a couple of years. Finally, we were able to pull it off this past Saturday. The plantation was picked since it offers setting details for both contemporary and historical romance. There is a bed and breakfst operated there now. And the house and grounds still remain in the hands of the original family who acquired the land in a Spanish land grant.

Of course we had lunch on the way in the small town of St. Francisville. Overall it was a pleasant day - um, HOT day! I hate to admit I've lived 30 minutes from the place we visited my entire life and had never been before. Though there are several other plantations in the area I've been to more than once. Here are a few pictures.
