More Boone Plantation

My Dad

Flowers from Boone Plantation

There were 9 slave cabins. At the peak of the plantation
up to 20 would live in a 10x20 cabin.

I love the pictures, Delee. The flowers are gorgeous!

Delee, what great pictures. It looks like you had a fabulous trip! Beautiful weather and all.

I've always thought that there's so much romance to that part of the country. I've never been lucky enough to spend any time there, but I sure would love to! Your pictures have made it even more so. : )

Delee: thanks so much for sharing! I love looking at other people's travel photos and living vicariously (sp?).

Hope you're having a wonderful time!

I thought I posted a comment here but I must have done it on Jackie's blog instead.
I love the pictures and the architecture of the old houses. I want to visit Savannah in the near future since it is not that far for me to drive! I hope you are having a great time!

Hi Delee -- I totally loved the trees with the hanging moss, and the Lazy Susans and the red flowers in close up... you're a pretty darn great photographer lady.

Nice to see the sandpipers on the water... best of all, fun to see your dad!

Consider yourself tagged.

Here are the Tag questions, Delee. Just delete my answers and add your own. 1. Clothes Shop - Clothes shopping? What is that? Is that where you take your 2 daughters to the mall and follow them around while they go into every freaking store there and try to burn a whole in your credit card? Or were you talking about clothes shopping for myself? I vaguely recall buying a new top for myself at Macys when I was on vacation in Florida this past summer. Does that count?

2. Furniture Shop - Okay, let me explain to you about me and my relationship with furniture. I am the woman who used my grandmother's hand-me-down bedroom furniture until about 6 years ago when I bought my first bedroom set at the ripe old age of 40. My newest furniture purchases are a couch and loveseat that I got for dirt cheap at a Levitt's going out of business sale last year. I bet you are sorry you asked that question.

3. Sweet - I'm a total ice cream junky. Ice cream is like my crack - can't resist it. I'm looking into group therapy for my problem, but haven't found an Ice Cream Eater's Anonymous yet!

4. City - I love my home city of New York. I'm a Brooklyn girl born and bred and proud of it. However, I would love to visit the beautiful cities of Hawaii.

5. Drink - I am not much of a drinker at all. I will have the occasional glass of wine or a frozen pina colada, but that's about it. When I became pregnant with my first child 18 years ago, I , of course, stopped drinking and never got the taste for it again.

6. Music - I like a lot of different types of music and am willing to try most anything except opera and jazz. I'm not a big country fan either, but there are a few country artists that I enjoy. My favorite singers are Celine Dion and Mariah Carey.

7. TV Series - Okay, now your talking! I love all things reality. There does not seem to be any depth too low for me to sink when it comes to reality shows. I also love Grey's Anatomy, Prison Break, 24, Ghost Whisperer, Heroes (not so much this season though), and Criminal Minds (mostly because of Shemar Moore - yummy).

8. Film - I love action movies, musicals and comedies (but smart comedies, not these really sleazy comedies that are the rage lately). I'm not so much into the heavy dramas.

9. Workout - Hmmm, I think I've heard that word before. Is that the thing you do in a gym? Ooh I really don't like that word at all. I should be either walking or doing the treadmill every day, but I'm a very bad girl! If anyone has any inspirational words to get me back to the gym, I would appreciate it. I might not listen to them, but I will appreciate it.

10. Pastries - What's not to like? I love cheese, cherry and raspberry the most, but can't think of any I would turn down. Well that's not exactly true I wouldn't eat any weird ones like spinach or eggplant or something like that. But I digress.

11. Coffee - I discovered coffee a little later in life than most people. I was probably around 30 before I started drinking 1 cup a day and I still stick to that. I refuse to buy from Starbucks or any of the fancy coffee shops. In my opinion there's not a cup of coffee on earth worth over $5! Dunkin Donuts coffee is fine with me.
