|We quickly drove through Alabama, including going right through Mobile without stopping. (It isn't very big, and lots of what we saw was industrial area and docklands.) We drove over the border into Mississippi, and drove over miles of bridges over the bayous. We arrived at Biloxi on the coast, and discovered that it too had suffered under Hurricane Katrina. Our casino was apparently all right, but the new one being built across the road had halted and never started again, several others had disappeared from the map, and there were many vacant lots along the waterfront where businesses used to be.
