We visited Ocean Springs this weekend for Memorial Day. The city was done up just right for a Coastal Southern Town. There were flowers blooming, kids playing, and the Sun was Warming. We really enjoyed our visit and got a few great pictures of the area. Did you know Ocean Springs has a cheese shop? They do! It is called Epicure Gourmet Cheese Shop in Ocean Springs. A great cheese shop is hard to find, so we will be back. There was an old fashioned candy store, an old drug store, and even a book store to stroll through. They pretty much had every kind of shop a person would want.
If you get a chance to drive Coastal90, hop into Ocean Springs Mississippi. I am sure they will be glad to see you!
The Memorial Day service was held at Veterans Memorial Park in Waveland. This park is located at the foot of Coleman Avenue on the Beach. Flags were all flown at half staff in honor of our fallen and missing soldiers.
