So we dragged our weary souls to a beautiful B&B in the town of Natchez on the Mississippi, an 'antebellum' (pre-civil war) house that is one of over 100 mansions in the tiny town built by millionaires who made their fortune by trading slaves, cotton etc along the river. Bad for them, great for us. Tried not to walk around with jaws dropped - the contrast to the previous nights made it even better. Welcome drinks, homemade cookies, a shower (luxury!), huge southern breakfast, amazing furnishings and friendly southern hosts.
Watched the sunset over the river, slept in a real bed... bliss.
