Oak Alley has a great place to eat if you get hungry. It also has dispensers of "Mint Juleps!" The bus driver told us the juleps sold near the house were not as strong as those sold at the gift shop. So, it was not surprising to see folks lined up in the gift shop. Gift shop, I now have a new meaning of those places.
When we got back on the bus it seemed everyone had their julep and they were mellow and happy. The ride back to town was joyous!
