We walked around the downtown area and looked at all the antique stores, ate at a few local places, went bowling, went shopping, went to a winery, and just relaxed. It was a very nice getaway.
One thing interesting that we did was go to the Longwood House.
If I'm correct, this is the only octagon shaped house in Mississippi. We were also told by a local shop owner that part of the movie series Twilight was filmed here.
What's interesting about this house is that only the bottom floor is completely finished. While it was being built, the Civil War began and everyone left the house just as it stood - tools and all.
Because of this nice getaway and then Mother's Day weekend, my weekend house projects have been put on hold for a while except for one very important project: our kitchen floor.
Yes, it seems that we have gotten a hole in our kitchen floor. So come back to check out our new floor!! I'm so excited! : )
