Shirley plantation

We stopped at a plantation while on our trip to NC.  This is the Shirley plantation.  It is still hard for me to rationalize how people thought it was okay to own other people.  I always find it interesting looking around on plantations even though it can be depressing if you let it.

We visited Shirley on our trip to Virginia in 2007. Thanks for the memories. We didn't see the cute character in your last photo.

Love the pictures, especially the tree one and the shadows of the trees on the path. We have several plantations around here, haven't been yet, but plan on going. I know it will be depressing.

Wow---that brought back memories... We loved our trip to that area several years ago. Loved that Scenic Drive all along the river there. I remember that we stopped at a little church around there and took pictures.

Great post...
