road trip recap: Biloxi, Mississippi

Unfortunately I wasn't able to fix the problem with my Lafayette Cemetery photo file so I still can't post them. On to Mississippi, I guess! I drove from New Orleans to the town of Ocean Springs, Mississippi and was so stoked to finally be near a beach! My boyfriend was scheduled to play at a bar called The Julep Room that night, so in the meantime we went thrifting (I found $19 in the pocket of a pair of horrid '90's shorts, woohoo!), and took a long twilight walk on the beach.

The next day started off with a free doughnut from Krispy Kreme (they were running a Daylight Savings promo that I had heard about on Twitter, and I know I said this in an earlier recap post, but getting free food when you're on a road trip is the effing bomb). Yum. It was then a short drive on over to Biloxi where Trixy was lovin' the beach view parking spot we got her. The early part of the day was spent soaking up the sun, eating ice cream truck treats, attempting to swim at Biloxi Beach (where the water was suuuuuper chilly and shallow for days), and exploring a local cemetery. After the crazy winter up in Wisconsin and the chilly weather at the beginning of the trip, the beach was, by far, the best thing about Biloxi. Even though I knew I was going to be experiencing lots more beach on the trip, seeing it for the first time here was really memorable. It wasn't long, though, before the van was packed up and we were crossing the Alabama border.

Is this Mississippi river on the photographs, am I wrong? I was always trying to imagine it while reading Mark Twain "Tom Sawyer" when I was a little child:)Those photographs are adorable:)
Wish you a great day ahead!

I love that shot with the lighthouse, and I think it's a good thing we don't have Krispy Kreme over here :-)

Johanna said...

I agree with the others...not sure if you used a filter or not but these pics are just dreamy. Like a lazy, hazy vaca which I am in desperate need of.

Laura said...
