Houses By The Beach

I took these pictures while hubby and I had our short road trip down Biloxi towards Pass Christian. We were just in route to Highway 90, the scenic route in Mississippi where the long scenic view of the beach was all you could see. Front of the beach are these big ancestral houses very vulnerable to hurricanes and storms. Sometimes, we saw vacant lots where only the broken fence and flooring's were left behind, a damage from Katrina.These Oak Trees are more than hundred years old and some survived so many historic hurricanes such as Camille and Katrina. Some of the people does not want to leave this area because it is really beautiful. If you live in this house, the front view is the Gulf of Mexico at 180 degrees. The whole beach is theirs and it's FREE to swim 24/7 plus the sunshine and sunsets are truly awesome!
The area is peaceful, low-crime rate, 9 casinos are just 20 minutes away more or less plus normal traffic. If you hate the traffic in your city, this is the right place to live.
The people who lives here have a nice life because they work but has plenty of time to enjoy with family. They always go for family related activities. They are involved in school activities, the town always has community activities. Almost every month actually plus, they go for boating, fishing, crabbing and jet skiing. The picture above has a missing concrete fence at the front.This is the view down Highway 90 in Mississippi. Look at the distance of the beach and the houses on the right. Water surge during Katrina is as high as 27ft.
People here manage to re-build their lives after Katrina. But, when you travel from here towards New Orleans, you will still see the damage untouched.
