This is the first in a series of posts I'm going to share about our recent trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It was a trip filled with lagniappe, and I'm going to begin with these pictures I took of the sunrise over Biloxi, Mississippi, early Saturday morning on April 10th. I took them from the beach across from our hotel in Gulfport.
It always amazes me how quickly the colors and cloud formations change during a sunrise or sunset.
It was so nice Saturday morning ... a little cool, but it was a glorious sunrise, and all was right with the world.
After the sun was up, I walked on the beach for a while. The tide was out and I was surrounded by seagulls on the sandbars chattering to each other (and fussing at me for trying to get too close to them).
I loved these sweet little sandcastles, and wish I could let whoever made them know that I captured them in a picture for "posterity."
Tomorrow I will share some pictures of the seagulls that were keeping me company on the beach. I had never really seen any up close, and I enjoyed watching them. They're beautiful little birds and left delicate little footprints in the sand ...
