The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Got My Gator

Gulf Islands National Seashore
Davis Bayou near Biloxi Mississippi

We've had poor or no Internet for the last few days thus why no posts to the blog.  We'll probably stay here through the weekend before moving on into Alabama then Florida.  With Mississippi having only 72-75 miles of gulf coastline road to follow and Alabama even less at 67 miles we are taking it real slow, much like at an alligator crawl.


  1. Nice to see that you can stripe away one point of your bucket list for this trip.

  2. Did you feel like walking over closer to the gator. Which lens did you use?

    Most of all did Sinbad see the gator?

  3. you got what you wanted John ... what's next on your list?

  4. Yes and a nice one too. Enjoy your leisurely driving.

  5. Wow, you captured him very well, how exciting!

  6. Nice photo of the gator! Have fun exploring the gulf coastline.

  7. I don't advise you dipping your toes into the water no matter how hot it gets.

  8. Did you stop to see George Ohr, the mad potter of Biloxi?
