(A Brief Intro)
Welcome to Mississippi!
Mississippi Welcome Center
Mardi Gras Dresses
Day trip to Biloxi
Biloxi Fishing and Seafood Museum
We crossed the most narrow part of Mississippi, only 75 miles wide.
We were surprised that the Interstate welcome center was laid out like a plantation style home with beautifully furnished rooms... and free pop!
In the welcome center was a display of different fancy Mardi Gras costumes.
While based in Mobile, AL, we took a day trip back into MS to visit the coast and Biloxi area.
We saw several shipyards as we drove along the coast.
A rotating railroad bridge that is in the open position for ships to pass by...
Behind us is a shrimp peeling machine. Years ago a father challenged his teenage son to invent a machine to replace a very manual job. The boy did it before he graduated from high school!
