The View in Biloxi

Need I say more????

Seriously, though....  I was not prepared for the devastation that is still evident from Katrina here.  Blocks and blocks of what must have been historical beach cottages and homes are gone.  So much for sale.  I'm really sorry I didn't see it before.  Same in New Orleans.  Not much evidence of the storm around the French Quarter, but as we left town you could still see all the abandoned and destroyed buildings and homes.  And I can only imagine how much has already been removed!  For all of you who were impacted by that awful storm, please know that I am so sorry.  The spirit of those we have met is strong and I know these wonderful towns will be back when the economy turns around.  Blessings to all~

Added 3/3--  Please know that I don't want to discourage anyone from visiting Biloxi!  There is still much worth going for.  The casinos have all been rebuilt and are terrific.  On the positive side, because the casinos that were on water were lost, they passed laws so that they could rebuild on land.  They've done a great job.  And the beach is still gorgeous!  White sand and beautiful water.  Not damaged from the gulf spill as so many people have thought.  The saddest part is the loss of historical properties.  So don't stay away!
