We headed out from Vicksburg, Mississippi, and checked out the Vicksburg civil war battlefield:
Saw an amazing civil war armored steam ship:
Saw some barges on the mighty Mississippi:
And hit the road again:
Saw some local wildlife:
We ended up in Hattiesburg, where I ate some shrimp and grits. More photos here.
The next morning we headed for Gulf Shores, Alabama. I wanted to check this one additional state off my list (I now have only six left to go!). We had a nice lunch at Lulu's, and then checked out Fort Morgan:
We drove down to the beach:
Saw what we think was a rare sandhill crane:
And took the ferry by a bunch of oil platforms:
We ended up at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, where we got an amazing deal on gulf-facing rooms. More photos here.
