Gulfport, MS

And so, our westward migration begins.  Our plan is to get to Southern California by the end of January 2017.

Leaving Florida

Our first stop was Gulfport, MS.  It was uneventful since we got hit with a bout of cold weather including lots of rain and fog so we didn’t get out much.

Next stop:  Breaux Bridge, LA

Gautier, MS

Gautier (locally pronounced as “GO-shay”) is near Biloxi, in the small “heel” of Mississippi that reaches to the Gulf coast.  This was a 3 night stop for us.

Gulf Islands National Seashore - Davis Bayou

While here we visited a portion of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.  Portions of seven barrier islands along the coasts of Mississippi and Florida, as well as mainland regions are included in this National Seashore.  The Mississippi District of the seashore features natural beaches, historic sites, wildlife sanctuaries, islands accessible only by boat, bayous, nature trails, picnic areas, and campgrounds. The Davis Bayou Area is the only portion of the National Seashore in Mississippi that is accessible by automobile.  This is the area we explored.  We’ll be able to see a portion of the Florida District of the seashore at our next stop.

Next stop:  Pensacola, FL
