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!
On a morning like this it is time to load the Kayaks and head out to the beach or the Bay St Louis Train bridge for some trout or redfish action. A reliable Kayak is a good choice for a low cost high enjoyment fishing machine. Generally fishing in a Kayak is more work and requires more sitting in a tight space, but the boat note is low and the fish aren't spooked from the larger profile. Fishing in a Kayak is also rewarding with a closer feeling to nature during your kayak fishing trip. Be safe, always wear a life jacket when fishing in a Kayak. It only takes a second to have some real problems in the water.
Many Kayak fisherman like the beach areas of Bay St Louis and under the Bay St. louis train bridge. The water in the bay can kick up quick, so keep a close eye on the weather when fishing from a kayak. Check out our Kayak Fishing Guide for Mississippi
Seems like many afternoons the fog is just rolling in off the Gulf. Makes for some incredible pictures and some pretty spooky looking scenes. Fog always adds the mystery or unknowns to a picture, event, or activity.
This afternoon I shot some pictures of Old Town Bay St. Louis when the fog rolled in. It is always funny how fog can play tricks on your ears and your eyes. Sounds seemed amplified and their direction unsure. Take a walk if you get a chance and watch this beautiful occurrence.
Standing under the shelter at the old train depot, I can't help but think about the days where this was the main form of transportation. The hustle and bustle of the train depot was surely the center of old Bay St. Louis. I would really love to see train service return to the Old Train Depot.
