An Afternoon in Natchitoches

Before we left our hotel room for a fun afternoon in Natchitoches, we spent twenty minutes practicing how to say NATCHITOCHES. According to the following YouTube video, it is one of the hardest town names to pronounce. (WE AGREE!!!!)

Donna mastered the pronunciation of NATCHITOCHES, and John…well, he’s still working on it. Once at least one of us had the pronunciation down, it was time to get down to business and see the things we came to see – the sites from Steel Magnolias.

We spent the rest of our time in Natchitoches looking for various filming locations, discussing our favorite scenes from the movie, and looking for a geocache hidden  just feet from where Daryl Hannah walked.
