We pulled into Vicksburg and our first stop was the Welcome Center. While walking around enjoying the various paintings throughout the building a gentleman approached us to introduce himself as the artist and if we had any questions he'd gladly answer them. We didn't have any questions but we let him know we thought the paintings were beautiful. The Welcome Center was definitely welcoming. The staff were quick to offer coffee or info to everyone that walked through the door. We don't travel with pets but I noticed they had a dog park at the side of the building for tourists with pets that looked very clean and well maintained. The best part though was to see a train crossing the river on the old bridge that's still in use. I don't know what possessed me but for a moment I unwittingly reacted without thought and waved at the engineer. What is it about trains that brings out the kid in all of us? Next thing I knew he was giving us a short blast of the whistle. I'd of settled for a wave but the whistle was great. We walked the grounds and enjoyed it. It was a good way to relax before moving on.
