As I said before - I had my camera in the trunk of the car on the trip TO Louisiana, and I missed a lot of good photo opportunities. Thought I would get the same on the way home , but for some reason I didn't find as many as I'd hoped. And when I did - the camera I have left a lot to be desired.
First landmark - leaving Louisiana and entering Mississippi
These are a couple of pictures of the Pascagoula River . This river is located in southeastern Mississippi and is about 80 miles long. These pictures were taken in the area they call a "rich network of channels an bayous" - where it empties into the Gulf of Mexico. I read that it was #9 on the Most Endangered River List - but that was in 2009,
This first picture as we crossed the river shows a nice rain shower in the distance - some threatening clouds.
Along the bay area here you can see Battlefield Park.... but before you get there you have to pass through the George Wallace Tunnel - which goes under the Mobile River, connecting downtown Mobile with Blakeley Island and the elevated portions of I-10 that cross Mobile Bay.
As you pass along the elevated portions of I-10 across the Bay you get a glimpse of Battleship Park and the might USS Alabama Battleship. which had over 3 years of active duty during World War II. The ship was returned to Alabama in the 60's and in 1969 opened to the public.
