Biloxi, MS, Post Hurricane Katrina and Jan '14 snow and ice

It was our first trip to the coast since Katrina. 
Mother Nature brought everything to a halt again
January '14
when she delivered snow and ice
that lingers.

The Gulf is still the Gulf.
Gulls and pigeons are still gulls and pigeons.
that feast on day-old bread.

Post Katrina:
Sculptures of birds and marine life
were created from the
remains of live oak trees along I90
by
chainsaw artists Dayton Scoggins and Marlin Miller

I was moved to tears.
Out of unimaginable devastation beauty arose,
proof 
there are blessings
in the worst
situations.

Go to biloxi.ms.us
find what's "Free"
for pics of the sculptures
and
info on the area.
There's lots to see and do.
