Thursday – December 3, 2015
Gulf Islands National Seashore
Davis Bayou Campground
Ocean Springs, Mississippi
Wednesday was a cool, overcast, dreary day, with frequent rain showers occurring through the early afternoon. We decided we would spend part of the day at the local library in Panama City Beach, Florida. Free Wifi at the library allowed us to access the Internet to catch up on the news and some of our other favorite websites.
The rain cleared the area later in the afternoon, still leaving overcast skies, and a cold front entered the area bringing temperatures down into the middle forties overnight.
We had an early morning breakfast with my son at The Egg & I in Panama City Beach, Florida. We bid farewell to him, until next year’s visit, as we depart Panama City Beach, Florida.
We had planned to spend the night at the Boomtown Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. They have free parking there for overnight RV parking, with roving security. However, as often happens during our travels, we changed our plans!
I remembered during our travels in March 2014, we had spent a few days at the Davis Bayou Campground located within the Gulf Islands National Seashores in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. We decided a return visit is in order and we will relax and spend a few days there.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
