So I’m about a week behind on the blog but you’ll soon realize why…
We spent Saturday 2/24/2018 in Ocean Springs Small Craft Harbor and could not have picked a better stop! We had visitors in and out most of the day, the rain held off until the evening and it was wonderful seeing family!
We share a great morning visit with Clark & Beth (fam from Hattiesburg) and Wes & Debbie (fam from Biloxi)…not to mention a surprise visit from Mark (friend from Wet Point in town to see his fam). We went to lunch at Charred with Clark & Beth then strolled the “main drag” of Ocean Springs. What a great downtown – you can see the effort the community is putting forth to make this Gulf side town unique to stand apart from the standard. Very welcoming!!
Back at the boat we said good bye to Clark & Beth. It was time to work on the ever evolving to-do list OR take a nap – tough choice. LOL!!
Early evening brought Wes & Debbie along with Tyler back to the boat and McElroy’s was the dinner choice!! It was nice to see the improvements to the rebuilt business’s since Hurricane Katrina but rather sad to see the vacant lots where complete neighborhoods once stood…time really doesn’t stand still.
Wes was a great tour guide and his local knowledge showed his commitment to the Mississippi Gulf Coast…Good Times!! I would recommend anyone visiting the area to take your time give all of the town’s equal attention. I was most pleasantly surprised with Ocean Springs.
