|In the garden outside Bocage Plantation|
The morning was chilly outside, but we bundled up and walked the grounds for better views of the mansion. Horses grazed in the fields next to us and ruins lay in the back of the property from when sugar cane used to be harvested and burned on the property. We said our goodbyes and pointed the car toward the Sunshine Bridge, crossing the Mississippi River and carrying on to the other side.

Unfortunately, there is only so much time in a weekend, and the rest of River Road's grand plantations had to be saved for another day and another adventure.
