I am so excited that Sunday has rolled around again. Originally we were going to go to Rodney, MS today, however my husband thought that maybe we should not go quite so far. So, I asked the boys and they wanted to see the Witch’s Grave in Yazoo City, MS. It is an hour closer so off we went. Honestly, I am not sure that is quite what he had in mind.
At any rate, it took us about 2 hours to get there and it was a gorgeous drive. We took Highway 16 most of the way and like I said it was gorgeous. The fields were that deep green that they are in Spring, before all the dust settles on them and the sun hasn’t beat down on them yet. The trees were deep green too. We got to Yazoo City and I was not sure what to expect. As we went down the hill and came into town we started seeing the old homes and buildings and started looking for a place to park. We found a public parking lot and got out and began our walk into the downtown area.
I have never seen a downtown like this, it was kind of neat. We saw old buildings that were painted every color you can think of. There were all kinds of shops in the buildings and the downtown seemed to be doing pretty well. It was kind of creepy walking around in the downtown early on a Sunday morning though…we were like the only people there. It was almost as if there was no one else in the entire town. We did see the occasional car, but for the most part, there was no one around.
This part of the trip was pretty cool. We learned some history about Yazoo City and learned what there is to do there: Yazoo County The downtown was gorgeous and so was the drive up there. We couldn’t wait to see what else the city had to offer.
Tomorrow we will talk about getting and giving directions!!!
