Our first visit to this area was in 2006 a year after Katrina and the devastation was amazing and so very sad. They have come back and reopened the beaches rebuilt many businesses , new piers docks and bridges. Except for all those floating casinos and huge mansions that were just swept away.
A few years ago we spent a menthe in this area and toured most of it and every year we can see how they have rebuilt and are making Biloxi beautiful again, Sad that all the stately mansions and wonderful architecture has been swept away. Mostly just pictures and memories that can be seen an enjoyed at the visitors centre. Further in land there is still some interesting building to view still.

Did what we wanted to do today then were back home by noon and quite hot with the ac on in the car, 80F outside, we enjoyed some leftover pizza I had in the freezer and sat outside to read for a while, but the winds picked up and rains began. So we stored out awning and headed inside. Now by 2 pm only 62F outside. My what a quick change in temperature!
|reheat our pizza in a covered fry pan is the only way |
and tastes almost like fresh baked
Shortly after 2 pm our good friends Jim and Sharon stopped in for a visit and Happy hour of course. They are camped not too far away and were out and about in the area. So nice to catch up again. They are from Alberta Canada, last time we saw them was January in Arizona. First time we met them was in Desert Hot Springs California at Catalina Spa for a New years eve gathering maybe 8 years ago and a couple of years in a row. Then again in Key West Florida. Again In Alabama and a few other times. Such a small world and so nice to keep getting together with them.
