I once again find myself sitting on a plane on my way back from a magical time with my girlfriend, Nena and feeling a bit sad. For the past 2 weeks I have been in Ocean Springs, South Mississippi. I was apprehensive about visiting the region after such destruction 6 months earlier by Hurricane Katrina but being in the arms of my girlfriend negated any hesitance on my part.
So what did we do? Well yes, we done that! I caught the ‘Katrina Cough’! We visited the carnage the tidal surge inflicted along the many miles of coast in South Mississippi – in particular Gulfport-Biloxi. We visited an eerie post-Katrina New Orleans with 800,000 people still to return. Hell, I even saw a crocodile that wasn’t in captivity! But most of all Nena and myself spent precious time together.
They say the best way to get over the blues of a holiday being over is to start planning the next one. So only 6 months to go until the next! In the mean time here is a roundup of notable moments from the trip I took from Saturday March 4th through Saturday March 18th.
