    This is the beach of Bay. St. Louis. It might not the most beautiful beach, but it is so surprisingly uncrowded, it feels like walking on your own private beach.

  • For a great view of the bay...

    For a great view of the bay you can eat or simply sit and have a drink at 'Dock of the Bay'. A unique place with a unique history owned by a former rock star.

  • I discovered 'Trapani's'...

    I discovered 'Trapani's' many years ago and often took my family from Slidell, La. on weekends just to eat there. I recently rediscovered it and it has improved. There are several fish dishes that I go for but all the food is fine.

    Casino Magic

    by RoseAmano Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The restaurant was nice, and there are other events such as concerts, etc.

    I happened to be unusually lucky in the one time I visited there, winning 10x more than I had bet.

  • Lonely Train Station Platform

    Well, I guess it's a pity that not many people use the trains here anymore, and looking at the schedules and timing, I guess I can understand why - it'd be faster just to drive your own or rental car, or ride the Greyhound Bus, which seems to have faster and more frequent runs!According to the Amtrak website, the Sunset Limited stops here thrice...

    There are some neighbourhoods with a waterway in the back yard. People who live here often own boats - and use the waterways to lead to the Gulf of Mexico.

    Fishing in South Coast Mississippi, USA

    by RoseAmano Updated Jan 21, 2008

    You may charter a fishing boat for 1/2 day or a full day. Our captain looked after us well, from baiting and casting the fishing rods, to filleting the fish. We caught many and larger fishes such as red drum, rainbow trout, etc.

    Equipment: For most charters, you need only to bring your own sunscreen, seasickness medicines where required, and an insulated plastic box for your drinks and to store your fishes.

    Roseamano's Father's House

    by RoseAmano Updated Oct 15, 2005

    Favorite thing: Once upon a time, Roseamano's father had a house in Bay St. Louis Mississippi USA, until the Hurricane Katrina.

    Though he evacuated safely in a timely manner, when he returned home to check it out, this was the welcome. He writes on 01 Sept :

    "This is what my place in Bay St. Louis looked like this afternoon. The roof of the house is about 23
    feet (7.5 meters) above ground level. My neighbor said the water was higher than the roof.
    I'm still considering where I'm going to go, and what I'm going to do once my affairs in Bay St. Louis are settled."

    I'm understanding now that since there essentially are no more possessions to consider, once the the telephone calls and arrangements are completed, the moment of freedom to start anew with empty hands comes suddenly.

    Let's encourage those who were devastated in the disaster.
