mcdougal plantation house
Mcdougal plantation house, the front building has no windows, it is the smokehouse.
The slaves would cure the meat here.
There was once a separate kitchen, but it burned down years ago: this was why the old houses, here, had kitchens in a separate building, they burned down often!
there are about 12 to 15 fireplaces in the plantation house, must have been a full time job to keep them burning!

So here is a nice 65 degree Talahassee, florida, day!

The light and the shadows really stand out, even at the end of january, "today", the subtropic sun is very very bright.
