On the Way to New Orleans

Susan on the Gulf Coast
We took a little detour on our way to New Orleans from our overnight stop in Birmingham to visit the Gulf Coast at Gulfport, MS. The weather was beautiful, and because it is off season, we had no problem finding a parking space right on the beach.

This marvelous old pier unfortunately still has battle scars from Hurricane Katrina, and so we just enjoyed a walk on the white sands for a while.

Then on the road again, continuing along US 90, giving ourselves a chance to keep the gulf in sight. We were stopped at a red light in Waveland, MS, when I noticed this building on the corner, with signs offering Oysters, Burgers, Po-Boys, and Shrimp – so we decided to pull off and have our lunch there.

It was a very unpretentious place, but the food was excellent and the service delightful. I had my obligatory Oyster Po-Boy, and of course, I forgot to take a picture, but it was stuffed with oysters, and tasted wonderful.

I’m going to try to remember to take pictures, but the food often comes and goes before I think of it. (This is a catch-up post, and I have two more where I did the same thing. I’ll get the hang of it soon.) Then on to our resort – Wyndham La Belle Maison, right on the edge of the French Quarter.
