Front Porch

Front Porch

This is a familiar scene to any Southerner, or maybe just any human being in general. My wife and I love to sit on the front porch on a cool spring sunny day, or even on a rainy day and enjoy the scenery and the sounds. Not many things are quite so relaxing as sitting with a loved one enjoying being outside and a good conversation... and maybe, for many, a big ol' glass of sweet tea.

This photo was taken at the James Drane home at the French Camp historic site along the Nathez Trace. I thought it was such an iconic scene that represents so many Mississippi front porches where friends and family often gather for fun, food and conversation. Since spring is now here, I suspect many will be enjoyting the peacefulness of sitting and relaxing on their front porch.
