The Gulf Coast

Skybus is my new favorite airline!  At the beginning of January, they had a sale on flights for $20.08 each way.  I booked a trip for a couple weeks later to go down and visit some friends of mine that live in Louisiana.  I had a great time and saw a lot.  I’ve visited there quite a lot but I always manage to find something new to see and do.  This year I stayed at the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville.  It is quoted to be the most haunted house in America.  I stayed by myself (the hubby couldn’t make the trip) and I have to say I had a blast.  I didn’t see any ghosts per se but I did see some strange happenings!  I love plantations and I was mostly excited about just staying in one – the ghosts were just extra excitement!  Below are some shots from my trip!

Le Beau Plantation in Arabi, LA facing the Mississippi River.

Le Beau Plantation facing the street.  This plantation was slated for restoration prior to Hurricane Katrina, I’m unsure of her destiny now.

The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, LA.

Rocking chairs on the back veranda at the Myrtles.

Nottoway Plantation in White Castle, LA on River Road.  The largest plantation left in the South at 53,000 square feet!  Hopefully they had maids 😉

Bon Sejour aka Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA on River Road.  Most will recognize this from Interview With the Vampire.  The Live Oaks here are over two centuries old!

Evergreen Plantation in Edgard, LA on River Road.  One of the most complete plantation complexes left in the South.

Slave Cabin row at Evergreen Plantation.  Very few cabins remain and those that do are rarely in their original location.  I believe this may be the only row still surviving in the South.

Individual cabin in the row – hard to believe these were still lived in in the 1950’s isn’t it?

Miss Petra P did not enjoy having Ohio weather invade Louisiana!

Petra gives her friend Sydney a hug.  Toddlers can so quickly steal your heart can’t they?

Biloxi Lighthouse.  It was damaged in Hurricane Katrina and was just recently restored.  I want to say this is the only lighthouse in Mississippi that survived.

Movin' On Up!

I’ve moved back to WordPress hosted on my on serverspace.  Blogger is nice, but I don’t like the layout ideas nor do I really like the setup of the commenting.  I’m trying to move everything over here but it make take some time so bear with me (I will postdate so it doesn’t confuse anyone).

 Don’t mind the layout, I’m still trying to find my nitche.  I found one that was perfect, hacked it to include a few things I needed and discovered that it didn’t support images in the posts.  That’s not going to work!!  So it’s back to the drawing board.  So don’t be too surprised if there’s a few weird looking pages before I find what is right for me.

Please update your bookmarks to http://www.coreyann.net/blog !  Thanks!

Justin + Jenny 12.21.07

I filled in as a second shooter at the last minute for Everlasting Images based out of Toledo, Ohio. Justin and Jenny were such a great couple, both were extremely calm and took everything in stride. Their bridal party was a hoot! The guys got into a snowball fight prior to the ceremony and the girls rocked out in the church prior to the ceremony with hula hoops and blow-up guitars! The girls finished it all by serenading Jenny with “Going to the Chapel” which was adorable! The ceremony was full of love and the reception was a rockin’ good time! Thanks for the opportunity to share in your special day!

I may have more shots when I get the ones I wasn’t able to back up personally from Everlasting Images 🙂
