Mike and I set out on one of our greatest adventures yet; we spent two weeks last December road tripping along the Gulf Coast. Starting from College Station, Texas we made the short six our trip to our first destination, the Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, Louisiana.
Driving into the small town we weren’t sure what to expect, but as we made the final turn into the Oak Alley Plantation driveway it felt like we had driven back in time. I stared out the window at the beautiful oak trees, they were so large that the tops of the trees just disappeared, covering the blue sky – I had never seen anything quite like it.
We were greeted by frozen lemonade from our Oak Alley hostess who drove us to our lovely cabin nestled under… you guest it – beautiful oak trees. She explained the layout of the Plantation and all of the wonderful amenities that we could enjoy during our stay, along with a tour of our quaint cabin. As we walked into the cabin a fireplace warmed our hearts as we walked through the living room and into the cabin.
The Pink House
Not many people know that the actual color of Oak Alley is pink! When you look at photographs the eye could be tricked into thinking that its white, but don’t be fooled it’s actually pink. We fell in love with the “Oak Alley Pink” house and decided to paint a wall in my house the same color to remember our first Christmas together at Oak Alley Plantation.
