I’m going to Jackson

Posted on Updated on

That’s Jackson, Mississippi, in beautiful 76 degree weather!  Another day free so each of a chose our want-to place in the State Capital.  I got a visit to the home of Nobel Prize winning author Eudora Welty and Austin chose the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science.

Although I actually got some beautiful shots of fresh blooming camellias in the Welty gardens, my new camera and I have not yet come to an understanding of operations.  Meaning, I don’t know what I did but I do know that I can’t find those pictures on it now!

We do have a few cool photos to share from Austin’s destination though!

Our day ended with a wonderful dinner at Petra’s Greek and Mediterranean Grill on Old Canton Road in Jackson.  The restaurant serves authentic Greek, Mediterranean and Lebanese food and the hummus was to die for!

    I was in Jackson 2 years ago while deploying with the RedCross. It is a delightful city with good food and very friendly folks. I think it is cool that you choose a destination and Austin chooses another. It is an interesting way to travel.

      Thanks, it is a great city! There were so many places to visit it was hard to choose but I’ve always loved Eudora Welty so mine was easier than Austin’s. He was wonderful and sat through the historical video of her life at the museum and walked through the gardens with me reading the markers, and I got to see some great live-animal displays. I think we’re homeschooling each other as we go!
