One of our day-off excursions. The Oakley Plantation was a frequent stay of John James Audubon before he was a famous naturalist and merely a $60/month tutor who also dabbled in painting pictures of flora and fauna. It is now a faithful reconstruction of a pre- and antebellum plantation. Very interesting, and if you want to know more about it, email me.
This is "Gus". He greets every visitor to the Oakley Plantation with a strut, a ruffle of his feathers, and a pose.
