27 NOVEMBER 2012
We are leaving the Island View Casino Resort this morning and moving down to the Beau Rivage in Biloxi. However, it's raining at a pretty good pace as we look out the window for a weather check. They didn't mention this on the evening weather forecast.
We decided to hang around and try our luck hoping for the rain to slack up or even quit. About 11 AM we get lucky, with the weather only. So we packed up and suited up for some possible damp weather for our ride down the beach. We had wanted to go the LOOONG WAY around and maybe even stop at the Shed or McElroy's in Ocean Springs for lunch but the weather doesn't look like it will stay dry for very long, so we are going to make a run for it straight to the Beau.
We are leaving this:
The Beau is about a ten mile run straight down the beach road from Gulfport, which is Highway 98 heading east.
It would be a lot more fun to make the day with a nice ride and then come to the Beau but it's not gonna happen today. The rain has stopped for the moment.
The sky to the east beyond this old light house that survived Hurricane Katrina 05 looks clear but if you look behind us to the west, it's another story all together. I told Marguerite not to look back and try to get a picture.
Checking into the Beau is always a treat and they have already decorated for Christmas.
