Tuesday, October 4 – Well, we didn't win the millions we hoped for at the casino last night. Marsha did win $37, but Paul lost his usual $20. It was a fun evening regardless.
This morning we were on the beach, across the street from the campground, bright and early to take full advantage of our last day. Another beautiful day!
We cleaned-up around lunch time to head downtown Bay St. Louis, MS, to do a little window shopping among the many small shops. If you visit this area and love delicious breads, stop in at Serious Bread: Handmade Artisan Breads. Yummmmmy! The gal at the Visitor’s Center suggest we try there Garlic Rosemary Sourdough bread…awesome. We had to buy a loaf. The sales gal suggested we slice and freeze the bread. She said it is still delicious when you take it out of the freezer. Paul also loved the lemon poppy seed muffin.
The sales gal was so excited to explain the benefits of sourdough. Some of you might be interested in the details of the sourdough. Their motto is “All Bread Is Not Created Equal.”
Things are in an exciting mood due to the upcoming Crusin' beginning Thursday. The shopkeepers can almost hear the cash registers ringing. This is a huge event for this entire area. We were told over 7,000 cars are entered in the show. Many are already here. The downtown area is sure a busy place.
We stopped for a delicious seafood lunch at Tony's Seafood in Waveland, MS. We ate here years ago and found it clean, reasonably priced, and plenty of yummy dishes. Paul had the grilled catfish and shrimp dinner, and Marsha enjoyed the grilled shrimp dinner. Both were scrumptious!
There is a tree several yards behind our site that Marsha just loves. She says it has so much character.
We then headed back to the campground to relax and get ready for tomorrow's travel day. We may try to make it all the way to Houston but have a couple places to stop if we decide to it's too long of a day. Normally we wouldn't drive that far but there is only one site open at the Houston Elks, and we would like to get it. Also, our AC/heat pump replacement has arrived at PPL in Houston. We are anxious to get it installed. You can’t believe how hot it is until you don’t have AC.
Bella actually crossed the street with us and walked a short ways to the beach before she scrambled to get back to the safety of her home.
So stop back tomorrow and see where we finished our day. Regardless, we'll be in Houston by Thursday, so if you're passing through in the next several weeks, give us a shout out!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
