Davis Bayou

Mist in  the bayou
rising up to greet the dawn.
A new day begins.

An egret on Davis Bayou

This was our second time visiting the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida. For those of you who have seen our blog from previous years, you may recognize the photo of the Blue Angels. I find it so amazing that this display accurately reflects how closely the Blue Angels fly to each up to 700 mph.  It all seems too dangerous to me..

The combination of excellent tour guides who are retired aviators and thoughtful displays make this museum worth visiting numerous times. Even if the photos seem overly packed with planes and jets, when you’re there, it’s all good! I would go back again.

The PBY Catalina Flying Boat was used during WWII in anti-submarine warfare,
as a convoy escort and for search and rescue.

This is a piece of public art in Ocean Springs, MS
outside their cultural center where we attended a
folk music concert. We try to appreciate
local theater, music and food when traveling.

This is a metal side panel on a bridge. It is the logo of the
Shearwater Pottery. What you see through the cutouts is the marina behind it.




















 Laissez les bons temps rouler!

It's Mardi Gras season in Louisiana!

This is standard fare in Louisiana! We've tried gumbo, crawdads, gulf shrimp, crab cakes, soft shell crab...but so far no grits, catfish or... Bud Light! 😪
