Where I stayed
We had lunch at home and then headed for the Mississippi Maritime and Seafood Museum. The Hussy did a great job of getting us there, however, much to our surprise, all that remains is two FEMA type trailers
We asked about the Biloxi Lighthouse and were directed about two miles east to it's location. It's right between the lanes of US Hwy 90. We didn't even notice it when we arrived a few days ago. It was built in 1849 and has an interesting history. Unfortunately, the tours are given only early in the day, so we missed our on that. Lynnie has a strong interest in lighthouses. Unfortunately there's a lot of construction on US90, so the pictures reflect that and arent' the greatest.There are a number of lighthouses all along the coastline from here to Maine and also in Canada. I'm sure we'll eventually find some that we can enter.
I decided to get gas in the Sooby, so used my Gas Buddy App on the found and found it for $3.40 a gallon. When we arrived at the Shell station, it had gone up to $3.49 a gallon. I'll fill up when we get to Alabama tomorrow or so where it's supposed to be a dime cheaper. Shorty will need fuel too, so it can amount to a few dollars different, especially with so many gallons needed.
We decided we'd visit another casino since we were in Biloxi
Tonight we're going for pizza at the Mellow Mushroom. It sounds like a druggy thing to me, but James assured me last night that the pizza is good albeit pricey. We will see.
It got up only to 62˚ today, but the forecast is for the seventies at Meaher State Park in Alabama.
By the way, I added a picture of Fred and his dog, Rudy. Rudy could pass for a smaller twin to Joe and Mel's dog Rogue. We visited a bit with Fred and learned that he was a defensive end for the Baltimore Colts in the seventies. He offered this only because we aren't from around the area. He's a kind guy and no braggart, to be sure. I did a search and found quite a bit about his NFL career. Interesting places we go, for sure...
