Louisiana roads SUCK!!

but other than that things are going along quite well.

Left Biloxi yesterday a.m. after touring around the
Gulfport/Biloxi area. No I didn't win any money but I didn't lose any either, so came away OK.
Mr Doodles was stationed in Biloxi while in the Air Force, well that was a bajillion years ago, and obviously things have changed quite a bit since his eleven month stay here. But he did say that there were some gorgeous olde mansion on the gulf road, over looking the gulf. They are all gone, as are all the businesses along that boulevard.

We did go into a casino, the Beau Rivage, my they did a wonderful job
getting that back up and running. It's as nice as any smaller casino in Vegas. Anyway.........we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Majestic Oaks RV Resort. Lovely people that own it, would recommend it highly. with lovely gardenia bushes outside our RV door next to the patio area designated for each RV.

The photo below is for my seester ;)

If ya get a chance though write to your congressional dope and tell him to please alot some $ to Louisiana. They are spending all their money on Katrina re-build and ignoring the interstates.

San stop...stay tuna'd

spose this is one of the reasons gas prices are so high - Shell Oil has not spent one thin dime for the folks in this if y'all are buying Shell gas remember where they are not putting their $$$

this is a lovely resort on Bilox Bay or I
should say was a resort.

Picture this was a very lively drive-thru on the luscious white sand beach of Biloxi Bay.

nope, i can confirm the roads in louisiana sucked before katrina. we heard it was because they only recently (last 10 or 15 years) raised the drinking age to 21, so they missed out on a lot of federal highway funds.

I don't buy Shell gas and now I'm even gladder (is that a word?) I guess you are seeing up close and personal some of Katrina's destruction. I thought it was bad when we went to Myrtle Beach after Hugo. Nothing like this.

The gardenia is gorgeous. Bet your sister does a picture of it.

keep having all that fun!

What an adventure. And I will certainly be hoping for a few political ramblings.

Doodles - thinking of you on your trip - a year out, how wonderful. And a chance to see things as they really are, not the way they are reported - so keep on telling us what you see ... it's shocking that there's still so much Katrina destruction ...

What an enriching experience for you
Best wishes to you both

Don't get too depressed with sights cuz you are heading west and the best is yet to come!

Gardenias outside the RV? Who could ask for anything more!

It is sad. You'd think some developer would come pump lots of money there because it is so beautiful of a resort area.
