Houmas House Fountain

Wow it’s been a crazy few weeks – working too hard with very little internet. But I’ve been in some cool and beautiful places and hope to catch up on some editing and blogging over the next few weeks.

This is Houmas House in Louisiana, an old sugar plantation now open for tours.

Hopson Plantation

The Hopson Plantation just outside Clarksdale, Mississippi was the first plantation to completely mechanize cotton production. Once the home of delta blues legend Joe “Pinetop” Perkins, today it sits in a state of arrested decay. Music can still be found in the commissary on certain nights, and the rooms are up for rent. Definitely a cool stop along the Blues Trail.
