Close Your Eyes...

I just got back from Biloxi. Jake and I hit the road at 6:15am and made it there rather quickly. Jake had the brand new minivan going about 95mph on I-10 east. It was an empty road and we were both ready to shoot.

Well we got off the highway at Gulfport and then headed south to the coast. As we got closer, things got worse. Actually, it is hard to believe what we saw.

The beautiful white beach is now nearly gone. The erosion has taken its toll and the water is now less than 50 yards from the road. The multimillion dollar coastal homes between Gulfport and Biloxi are now completey gone as in, gone. Torn down. Blown down.
