First day in Bay St. Louis, MS, April 26, 2014.

The eye of Kat­ri­na passed direct­ly over Bay St. Louis. My broth­er-in-law has done a mar­velous job remod­el­ing his house after the storm.  is on the way to the shop­ping dis­trict. The lone­ly sail­ing school boats belong to the pres­ti­gious St. Stanis­laus Col­lege. CSX freight trains make reg­u­lar runs through town and are one of the nois­i­est res­i­dents. 4 blocks from Steve’s house is Mock­ing­bird Café where they do a fine job for cof­fee and breakfast.

A trip down South Beach Boule­vard and across the bay bridge took us to Pass Chris­t­ian, the home of Shag­gy’s Pass Har­bor for a pret­ty good grilled fish sand­wich and a brew.

It was prom night at the Sycamore House and there was a wait for a table. To kill the time we took a lit­tle walk. Bar­be­cue Shrimp with Grits that would please the gods and a pot de crème for desert. I meant to take a pho­to of this won­der­ful desert. Oh, well. My girl­ish fig­ure is in peril.
