We started our day heading down I-85 towards New Orleans with our first stop in Biloxi. Why Biloxi? Well, my grandparents met there as my grandpa was in the Merchant Marines during WW2 and later the Coast Guard. I never got to meet my grandpa but I was able to find his address. We decided to drive past it to see what was there. I have no idea if this is the same house that was there in the 40’s/50’s but I was pleasantly surprised to see such a nice little house.
Biloxi is right on the coast and has a few large casinos and a light house. We got out and walked the dog on a large pier but didn’t have time to stop and do much else. On to New Orleans!
