Mississippi

Friday, April 29th    Sunny and cool in Mississippi

Carrabelle Beach, FL  RV park in background


Friday morning I left Destin, FL and headed towards Ocean Springs, MS to the Gulf Islands National Seashore. I didn't have time to take the ferry to the Island. I went to the Visitor Center and walked some of the paths. I picked up the sticker for my National Parks Passport.




I passed many Wildlife Refuges and State Parks in Florida and Mississippi that I didn't have time to visit. Sometime down the road I will probably spend a winter in Florida so that I can visit more with my friend Sophia. I will have to research these areas, so that I can spend more time in these natural areas instead of fighting the crowds in the larger cities. I would like to spend a fall in the North East and then I could head down to Florida again.

After Ocean Springs, I headed North and stopped for the night in Byram, Misssissippi at the Swinging Bridge RV Park, this is a very nice wooded park, close to a town and shopping and restaurants.

It is on the frontage road of I55 - easy access for tomorrow morning. They have seasonal sites, but they use a different area for short term visitors. I had a pull through site near the office and laundry area. The man in the RV next to me helped me hook up the sewer connection, as this was the first time I was using it. They are full-timers, his wife was inside cooking and I didn't meet her.
I was leaving early the next morning and I was able to empty the tanks and disconnect everything after watching him.

A cute boxer pup followed me while I walked around the park.

  1. Sounds like you are having a great trip with your new rv. And you've experienced one of the best things we've found about rv'rs -- they're friendly and always willing to help if they can!
