This is another picture from the “Laura” plantation tour. This large
crock was used to store items requiring cooling- such as milk and
wine. They buried these crocks into the ground up to the upper lip.
The water from the Mississippi which seeped through the ground kept
the crock at about 45 degrees. The wine wasn’t made here. It was
imported from Europe by the Creole family.

Today we are headed to Savannah. We spent the night in Jacksonville.
We are going to a large flea market this AM. We are also going to try
to eat at Paula Deans restaurant.
