Tallahatchie Flats

A while back my wife surprised me with a weekend getaway. I didn't know where we would end up, but when she told me to grab my camera and she turned up 61 North highway, I knew it was going to be good. We ended up at a place called Tallahatchie Flats (www.tallahatchieflats.com). I had been to the Shack Up Inn a few times, so I was curious to experience this new place.

Right on the banks of the Tallahatchie River, these small rural homes give you the experience that the old blues families might have had back in the day! Here are some photos from the journey as well as the destination!

  1. Robert, this is fantastic. Loved every shot you took. I immediately cued, "It was the third of Jone, another sleepy, dusty, Delta day..." What did Billy Joe MacAllister throw off the Tallahatchie Bridge???

  2. What a nice place to spend a weekend -- the Mississippi Delta! I love all your pictures, too, Robert ... but I think the one of the tractor in front of the cabins is my favorite -- and the grave marker, too!

  3. Fantastic shots! The one that really caught my attention... at rest in Jesus. :)

    Each photo has so much personality!
