Day 7: Laura Plantation, near Vacherie, Louisiana.
In contrast to Oak Alley, Laura is a traditional creole plantation. This place was largely run or dominated by women in its history. Its name came from an actual inhabitant, a girl named Laura, who grew up here and kept a chronicle of her life here. Our guide was called Camille and she was just terrific, a true creole lady who’s funny and rather sarcastic in her humor.
