Had a little lie in and got up around 8.30am. Once we'd finished emptying the waste and filling the water tank, we headed off around 11am. We had no idea where we were heading in Mississippi so decided to stop at the Welcome Centre in Greenville to see what there was to do. After a few minutes we had picked up a map of the state and few other leaflets. Firstly, we headed to Winterville Mounds just a few miles outside Greenville. It is a site of a prehistoric ceremonial centre built by a Native American civilisation. It was similar to the Effigy Mounds in Iowa except these ones were not in animal shapes, just ordinary mounds. This time however, we were allowed to climb to the top of one of them. When we got to the top though, we couldn't see any of the other mounds. We were too high. You could see them better from ground level. Afterwards, we headed away from Greenville to Leland, the birthplace of Kermit the Frog
