We are now into the state of Mississippi and will be spending about a week here before turning around and heading back towards Florida.
Mississippi has beautiful welcome centers. The one we stopped at today had a nice Christmas tree decorating the place.
There were also some sculptures by Artist Marlin Miller, famous for carving many of the oak trees that were killed by Hurricane Katrina and turning them into sculptures of dolphins, birds, and turtles.
And Elvis was there! He spoke to us and thanked us for stopping by.
We stopped in at Gulf Islands National Seashore, Mississippi District, Davis Bayou Campground. We did not have a reservation, but they had room for us. With Bernie’s National Senior Pass we pay half price for a nice space with water and electricity. We will be here for one week.
There are alligators, turtles, and snakes in the pond here. It was late when we walked by and saw no signs of any wildlife. It was around 70 degrees and the humidity is in the 90%. Might be some rain tonight.
