We had a plan and it was a beautiful morning so we donned our gear and headed out on the scooters. First we made a quick stop to fill the tanks and then off to the Natchez Trace heading North. I always love starting an adventure on the Trace, it just sets the perfect tone for a peaceful, pleasant ride.
As usual, Eric had mapped a fantastic route that took us through beautiful winding rural roads. My head was on a swivel looking at everything. Of course it is so spectacular with the spring blooms. I was pretty much in scooter nirvana 😏😜
Our first destination was lunch at Borroum's Drug Store and Soda Fountain in Corinth, MS. Touted as Mississippi's oldest operating drug store and soda fountain, it was a must stop since we were in Corinth! We found a great parking space in front of the County Courthouse.
And just across the street was Borroum's!
We ordered lunch, enjoyed our meal and took a look around. The onion rings were fabulous!!
After lunch we mounted the scooters and headed to the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center which was our goal for the day.
The path from the parking lot to the Interpretive Center was quite interesting in that embedded in the cement path were various detritus of war all found on this battlefield. The next few photos give you an example of the things we saw on the path, cast in bronze and scattered along the path. Certainly made the walk up to the main building interesting and slow!
