What a difference a night and a cold front make! Woke up this morning to 54°. It will be windy today, cooler with a high in the 60's and sunny. In all a beautiful day with a jacket. It promises to be a great last day in Natchez.
We had an interesting day visiting three houses and they couldn't be more different—the good, the not so good, and the mediocre tour.
