I'm writing this on the road. We are passing through Meridian, Mississippi on our way to Vicksburg. We are looking forward visiting the battlefield despite this cold weather!
We've totally changed our route due to the snow in the northeast. Instead of taking the interstate through Tennessee, we decided to head south first and avoid the snow and mountains. This morning we made another split decision to travel south again after visiting Vicksburg. We'll be staying with Matt's college friend in Natchez. I'm looking forward to seeing the early nineteenth century plantation homes.
Last night we stayed in Birmingham, AL and had the most amazing meal!! We had fresh fish at the Fish Market in downtown. I've never had such tasty snapper! Plus the ambiance really made us feel like we were in the south. A small New Orleans style band was playing some great music.
