Reunion trip, day 6
Off early this morning, heading toward home. First stop was Hodges Garden State Park, a formal southern garden with extensive water features. Azalea season is over, but we had a nice walk around and took some pictures.
Then it was on to the Adai-Caddo Cultural Center. The Adai were a group within the Caddo tribe and were converted to Catholicism by the Spanish very early. It's a worthwhile side trip.
Our final enroute stop was our friend Janie's wedding venue in Shreveport - she's a former innkeeper who sold her inn and created a stunning place for weddings. Janie is a classic Southern Lady.
Tonight we're in Hope Arkansas, where we missed former President Clinton by a day - fortunately for us since we just want to do our travel thing without interruption.
Miles for the day - 281.0, for the trip - 1360.8. Time on road (including 4:13 in stops) - 11:59
