Warm Springs is only about an hour away... on a nice new 4 lane road with no traffic... almost the whole way! Skippy was hoping to drive but, alas, that was not to be! We left about 9:30 and with one detour we were there!!
The Little White House
The window is a door to the living room and I was standing in the doorway of the bathroom. The bathroom divides the space between his room and Eleanore's.
Eleanore and the Kids Bedroom
This room was used for Eleanore and some of the kids when they were there. Eleanore did not come very often!
This is the Guest House!! I liked this one the best but could not get any pictures inside because people were in the way! It has a beautiful living room with a stone fireplace, one bedroom and a bathroom. So cute!! I can't wait to go back! Maybe I can get a picture then!
After a look around the museum and gift shop we headed out to the Pools.
We had to drive there but it was worth it! These massive pools are drained now but once a year (Labor Day weekend) they are filled for the public to enjoy for a cost of $20 apiece per adult. This also has a museum...with an iron lung! An eye-opener for my little group!
Once outside we were able to walk down into the middle pool to a fountain trough that had spring water flowing in it! The guide said for us to place our hands in the water and wait a few minutes before taking them out. When we did our skin was so soft! So were these people's skin!!

I have been watching the TV lately while I work... It brings great sadness to me.
There was damage from Katrina still there. Houses were being rebuilt. Businesses were coming back.
We had so much fun! It was so nice to get away to such a calming place. Sad now to think that greed and oil will destroy the beauty and way of life. I feel helpless. I don't want to think that these are the last clean images I have from there.
Please pray with me for the Gulf and that a solution is found soon!!
