18 January 2015 | Biloxi Mississippi
We finally left NOLA on Friday. We went 30 miles east on the GIWW to the Rigolets cut, and anchored behind Rabbit Island. We pulled anchor early Friday morning and continued to Biloxi, Mississippi. The weather was just absolutely beautiful. I suppose my only regret for the crossing is that we didn't see any dolphins.
We are currently moored at the Biloxi Harbor which is within walking distance from the historic downtown. Today, we walked through town and stopped at the Filling Station for lunch; a place Robyn and I had visited on our previous trip three years ago. Robyn and I split a shrimp po boy with fries, and Pat and Cat did the same. The food and service are still exceptional! When we returned to Robyn's Nest, we all put on our shorts, t-shirts, and sandals and started washing the Nest. Now it's time to just sit back, relax, and enjoy this fantastic gulf weather!
Tomorrow, we will take the metro bus to Ocean Springs. We have been told that they have a very nice historic downtown. There is also a "Katrina House" community there that we hope to check out. Robyn and I have been kicking around the idea of building one in Guthrie. I think Pat and Cathy will tour the Jefferson Davis summer home museum while Robyn and I do a few more boat chores.
If anyone is planning a trip to Biloxi, go see Inga at the Old Biloxi Schooner, or have a po boy at The Filling Station!
