Leaving the Main House

From the garden I returned to the circle in front of the main house. I retraced the path that brought me to the house. Again I passed the large oak tree on the right.

The Garden

Next I veered left to explore the garden adjacent to the main house.
I walked the pathways exploring one end to the other. There was gate at the other end.

Main House View from Oak Alley

The people who were sitting earlier were gone by now. It was well after
5 p.m. I was told that the grounds remain open until 10 p.m.

Walking Back to the Main House

After reaching the gate, I walked back towards the main house. I took photos of the house framed by the two columns of oak trees. The view was
so beautiful.

Oak Alley

People sat in chairs to take in the view. I passed by them as I walked a path to a gate at River Road. Along the way I shot photos of view in front of me.

Ground Floor

The guide finished the tour at the front door. We were set loose to explore the grounds. I took some shots around the sides of the building as I made my way to the columns of oaks.

Front Balcony

Before long our guide led us to the balcony on the front of the house. Along the way he pointed out a bell that was used to mark each half hour as tours began in the house. From the front balcony I saw a large magnolia tree and a front path.
