After eating a lovely brunch at Bayview Gourmet in Ocean Springs. Which is even more crowded then usual due to the scarcity of restaurants, and short staffed to boot, we decided to tour Ocean Springs.
First we drove to the Biloxi - Ocean Springs bridge. Seeing the concrete tossed to and fro like blocks after a toddlers temper tantrum is sobering, and gives you a new appreciation for the POWER of WIND & WATER. Then we drove along the beach in Ocean Springs, seeing homes that were just "gone", yards that had huge sink holes in them where the water had washed the ground away, and memories of someone's life scattered to the wind is depressing.
But there are signs of rebuilding everywhere and the capacity of the human spirt to survive almost anything nature throws at it, gives me hope.
