Tennesse, Alabama, Mississippi

Today was a day of driving, driving and more driving. Still haven’t reached the Mississippi River.Staying in Jackson tonight.

A spot of unfortunate news: A big oil spill in the Mississippi River has made the coast guard say no boats allowed. Therefore, no steamboat on the Mighty River for Janene 😦 And the river needs some serious cleanup. It’ll be interesting to see it tomorrow in Natchez

The Natchez-Trace Parkway felt like I was driving in a car commercial. I accidentally napped at a scary place. I mean I took a nap on purpose but didn’t realize until after taking a nap that it was a gathering place for witches.

We stopped on the way to Jackson to check out the Casey Jones Museum to get a picture for our lovely friend, Casey Jones. We could not find a museum in the town (we tried, Casey!) but we did find Jones Furniture, which I assume might have used to be the museum. Other interesting sights in Pickens, Mississippi:

There was mangy dog roaming the town carrying a plastic grocery bag in its mouth. We crossed its path 3 times before almost hitting it on the way out of town.

I've heard of bag ladies before but this is ridiculous!  (sorry so blurry)

A house that was obviously the plantation big house of Pickens back in the day

Oh and we ate at Sonic! It’s a drive IN not a drive THROUGH. Everyone gets their own little area with their own speaker and they bring out the food. Once in a lifetime eating there is definitely enough.

Hi, I'd like to order your crappy food.
