Bay St. Louis, Mississippi

4/24/09


Next stop, just a few miles down the road, is Bay Hideaway RV Park in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. I wanted to stop here, because our oldest daughter Alisha, had visited this town, while in her early 20's. She was so enamored with this little town, and said after visiting it, she was going to move down there someday. Well, she didn't move there, but a hundred miles east of Bay St. Louis, is now her home! She moved to Gulf Shores, Al about 2 years ago. Bay Hideaway was a very nice and clean RV park, with very new and clean facilities.My only complaint, would have to be the large gravel roads, and parking spaces. ( Mallery has a hard time walking on the rocks and hates southern grass- too prickly)



Entrance to Park



Light house (only light at night)
Bathrooms, playground, & rec room w/ big screen TV

Pool w/ fence around it



Bay St. Louis also had lots of damage from Katrina. And even though there has been much restoration, there is still much evidence of her presence!







Mile after mile on the Bay with nothing left, but just foundations

and just steps
and more foundations


and parts of churches

and destroyed docks


and more foundations




and more foundations with a for sale sign

and a destroyed car

and more just steps

addresses written where ever they can

and church steeples
and temporary churches



Most debris has been removed, but the old homes are gone, but there are
:







a few lots with hugh new homes


but more of these very small mobile homes
and many RV or trailers on the lots


Just for you Alisha- a store named Maggie May's- in old town Bay St. Louis, which house's 8 to 10 stores that were destroys and are now under one roof. ( Alisha's dogs name is Maggie May)
On August29, 2009 it will be 4 years since Katrina hit this area. Most home owners didn't have enough insurance to rebuild. And if they had insurance, they couldn't afford insurance now if they rebuilt. Most land owners hope to sell to those who can afford the insurance! But there are many lots available, so it keeps the cost of the lots not in demand, especially in this economy!
