|Good looking, hard working elders--Elder Sato (he's hoping the mission will start allowing skateboards!), Elder Barnes, Elder Ware and Elder Martell|
We attended our Church meetings in the Natchez Ward then had to part company with our wonderful weekend companions as we headed in 2 different directions. On our way back to Baton Rouge we made a little diversion from the highway to check out a little town called Woodville, just north of the Mississippi-Louisiana border. It's been around for over 200 years, incorporating in 1811, just after the Louisiana purchase in 1803 but before Mississippi became a state in 1817. John James Audubon visited there in 1820 and found 26 species of birds that he documented and painted in his Birds of America series. I'm guessing that the little guy in the tree below is a direct descendant of one of those in his books.
|Downtown Woodville--a pretty lonely looking place|
|Maybe everyone is at church and all the stores are closed on Sunday!|
|We did find a few homes in some very idyllic settings|
