Living along the bank of the Grand River on Abrigador Trail, we are now official river rats--meaning that we live in a floodplain. But the term means more than that since my initials spell rat--and the reflections are ones both in my mind and on the water.

Five Sunny Days in the South
view from our hotel balcony
We plan to leave Biloxi early tomorrow morning for our drive north through southern Mississippi to Jackson, then on to Nashville on the
Natchez Trace Parkway. We've had a great
time hiking, biking and visiting our favorite haunts, including Beauvoir, the home
of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy. We also made our
yearly stop at the Welcome Center and watched the Hurricane Katrina film.
The actual hurricane devastation here just over a decade ago was greater
than anywhere along the gulf coast, including New Orleans (which
received much of the news coverage due to the levy breaks). We need a
reminder that this wonderful area that we so enjoy suffered terribly and
has made an incredible comeback.
