Davis Bayou CG, Gulf Shore National Seashore, Ocean Springs, MS

We were in Mississippi for three nights and two days, staying at Davis Bayou Campground, which is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. This campground is not on all maps. The price with a Senior Pass is $8 with electricity and water. If you go there with GPS coordinates be careful. Our GPS brought us into the bikepath on the west side of the park. We had to unhook the car, drive back to Hwy 90, and drive farther east to find the entrance.

Dean loves a campfire and this was the first location that we could have a fire since we left west Texas. He has a great way of collecting fire while bike riding.

We hiked th trails in the park and did some bike riding.

There was one aligator that sunned on the bank opposite a bridge in the park. One day (while some fishermen were fishing on the bridge) he swam over to the bridge and I got some great pictures.

We drove into Biloxi and visited the Jeferson Davis Home, Beauvoir, and took a tour. The home has a great view of the water. After Jefferson Davis and a couple of other owners, Beauvoir was turned into a home for Confederacy veterans. It was heavily damaged in Hurricane Katrina but was restored to its original shape. Dean and I enjoyed the rocking chairs on the large front porch while waiting for our tour.
