Oak Alley Plantation

 The wide 17 foot porches provides ample shade and fantastic sitting areas.
The shade helps keeping the house cool.
Today electricity and fans aid in the coolness factor here in the very deep South!
It's all in the details.
Sugar Kettles
The plantation played a central part in growing sugar.  

 Today the kettles are filled with lilly pads. 
Lilly pads = frogs?
We couldn't find any frogs but if they were around I'm not sure how they managed to climb aboard...
