One year ago I saw birds close up
The twice daily trip to Ship Island Ms is something we never did when we lived there. It was a total blast. Being followed by popcorn guzzling seagulls and large brown pelicans the whole way, seeing a huge civil war fort that never fired a shot, knowing that when they damned up the rivers for power in the 30s that the gulf islands stopped growing are started shrinking. Most amazing fact, during Hurricane Katrina the wall of water that hit the coast went completely over the walls of the fort.
