We are at Gumbo Cove, getting ready for Cristobal.
It’s a unique place, nestled on a bayou in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.
Yesterday morning, across the bayou, we saw a man dressed for work sporting a bright yellow tie – and flip-flops. I thought it might be a little uncouth to take his picture, so you’ll just have to imagine it.
We also saw an alligator, slowly cruising by.
I thought it would be fine to take his picture. I think he’s beautiful, though menacing. We don’t swim in the bayou, needless to say.
That’s all for now, just a few random things as we batten down the hatches before Cristobal comes to visit.
Stay safe, my friends.

Very interesting article, please keep it up
Thank you, Yusif, I plan on it!
I remember sipping away in a waterside coffee shop in Bay St. Louis. I noticed poles stuck into the mud at least a mile out into the bay, and wondered what a moderate size wave across the salt flats would do. Five days later came Katrina.
David – wow. What a place/time memory. Have you been back to #BSL?
And the whole world saw what that giant storm did…how strange it must have felt to you to have just been there, and then for it to be almost completely wiped away.
The town has rebuilt beautifully; here’s hoping there isn’t another catastrophic storm this year, next year, or in the next decade.
