Mar 4, 2013 - to Gautier MS; 17/263

130304-Mon-73464 miles-Today we drove 64 miles. We toured Bellingrath Gardens, the home and took a cruise on the fowl river. We had a great time and the trike worked great. It hadn’t been charged since downtown Disney. Now we are in a new Good Sam CG that seems kind of hillbillyish. We are definitely in bayou country. Tomorrow we intent to go thru the Tobasco plant in Avery Island LA.

Jan 25, 2013 - Biloxi area

We watched C130 aircraft doing touch and go drills at the Gulfport airport as we were preparing to set off. Made us think of our dear friend Ted. And after riding for about four miles, we noticed something very strange. Both our bike computers said we had gone 20 miles! The only thing we can figure is that the radio communications or radar or something at the airport sent them crazy. We have noticed the car radio or the computer at home will start them running. Weird. So, we zeroed them out there and don't really know how far we traveled...

Nov 19, 2012 - Great amenities

We are really enjoying all the amenities of the places we are staying - Jim. Gautier (goshay) had a very nice RV park right on the water. We watched as some fishermen were cleaning fish. They said they had caught about 100 small white trout (10 inches). We watched one of the guys filet about 10 in 5 minutes with an electric knife. No fuss no muss. - brenda

Jun 6, 2012 - Time Flies.......

when you are having fun and are busy. The last few weeks have been full of fun, change in travel plans and an unexpected visit. Sorry to be away so long but will try to catch you up in the next few post. We are a live and well and back on the road. Back a few weeks ago we continued our trek a long the Gulf Coast. We traveled through the tunnel under the Mobil River 80 some miles to Shepherd State Park in Gautier, MS. This is a small state park made up mostly of marsh....or maybe they call it bayou's. They have a right nice campground. Our...

Jun 6, 2012 - Along the Mississippi Coast

We had seen pictures and read about the destruction that Hurricane Katrina caused along the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and wanted to see how this area is recovering from such a disaster. We drove from Ocean Springs to Bay Saint Louis. Even today, 7 years later, it was a sobering experience. While the rebuilding is encouraging and done with much love and hope, the true story is in what has not been done. There are miles and miles of just vacant property. The Live Oaks survived....the houses didn't. There are many lots with just the...

Jun 6, 2012 - More Along the Gulf Coast

We passed by the Biloxi Lighthouse which has become a symbol of hope. It to survived Katrina but still needed work done on it. It is the only lighthouse that stands in the middle of a 4 lane highway! All the bridges along the route from Biloxi had to be replaced....they are beautiful....and for some reason I didn't take any pictures! At the end of our journey we came to Bay St Louis and drove along the beach area there. They are re nourishing the beach to increase its size and to have more recreational area. There are new businesses in...

Mar 18, 2010 - Gautier, MS

Hello from Gautier, Mississippi (pronounced Go Shay). The pictures are from Baton Rouge on our way down here. I used to be fearful of bridges, now I look forward to them and photograph them. The water ways are the mighty Mississippi. There are a few pictures from the pier at out park and of the heron. We are on the Sioux Bayou. Our park is nice, but does have a lot of workers here. The pipe layers are here from surrounding states. All seem nice and friendly. We will make our way to Alabama on Monday, God willing. Be safe, everyone. Fondly,...

Nov 21, 2009 - Rare and Endangered

A species unique to Mississippi - Saturday, November 21 For the past three days we have dropped out, and hung out, at the Gulf Islands National Seashore in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. The campground is quiet and natural, and it’s a great place to relax and catch up on walking, reading and thinking. Wildlife sightings in the park have been limited to egrets, herons of various types, an osprey nest minus the osprey, a rabbit, some squirrels and a small bayou alligator kids in the park have nicknamed ‘Charley’. Bayous in the park are a...
