The Mighty Oak


We stopped to tour the Oak Alley Plantation. It is named for the Oak trees that line the path leading up to the plantation.

The oaks are amazing!

On one hand they kind of remind me of the cyprus trees in some of Van Gogh's paintings, filled with movement.

On the other hand they also remind me a little of the animation in those old Betty Boop cartoons.

Whichever...they definitely appear to be reaching off the page.

movielady: Now, that would be interesting: seeing those trees getting up and moving in an animation!
