A Sunday Drive to Grand Gulf Park

(Before It's News)

Yesterday, I took a Sunday drive to Grand Gulf Military Park with my friend, Johnette.  It was a beautiful day for a road trip and we had a good time.  I’ve been there before but it was about 20 years ago.  It’s called the Grand Gulf Military Monument which is located at Port Gibson, MS. We toured the museum, dogtrot house with water mill, a church, cemetery, rifle pits, observation tower (did not climb up in it), gun emplacements, campgrounds with a pavilion and restrooms. We did not get to go through the carriage house which was located next to the museum. 

Afterwards, we drove across from the park onto the River Road and ended up at the Mighty Mississippi River.  Just missed M/V Dennis Ross making his way northbound and eventually passing our hometown of Vicksburg, MS. 

Below are some pictures I took and have more to share with you in the next two days.  So please come back and check it out.
