Fenris Friday

Mommy said I could share our beach walk with you.

This is the Ocean Springs - Biloxi Bridge that spans the Mississippi Sound. It has a walking path on it. Mommy and Mrs Tammy have walked it without me and Tuiren. Mommy says it is very noisy and windy up there and that we wouldn't like it. Also dogs are not allowed on the bridge.

We walk on the Ocean Springs side which has walking paths on the beach  that dogs are allowed on.

The water isn't clear here because of silt from the rivers that feed into the sound. The Mississippi Sound runs east-west along the southern coasts of Mississippi and Alabama, from Waveland, Mississippi, to the Dauphin Island Bridge, a distance of about 145 kilometers. The sound is bordered on its southern edge by the barrier islands - Cat, Ship, Horn, West Petit Bois, Petit Bois, and Dauphin. Ship, Horn, West Petit Bois and Petit Bois Islands are part of the National Park Service's Gulf Islands National Seashore. Those islands separate the sound from the Gulf of Mexico. The sediment of the islands was created partly by the ancient Mississippi River when the St. Bernard Lobe of the Mississippi Delta was active over two thousand years ago. The expansion of the St. Bernard subdelta slowly isolated the Mississippi Sound from ocean dynamics of the open Gulf of Mexico.

Deer island where Mommy goes kayaking and that you can see from the Ocean Springs Beach (Front Beach is it's name) isn't a barrier island. Deer Island is an island off the coast of Biloxi, Mississippi that was once part of the mainland and is not a barrier island {ref Deer Island, A geological and Historical Study, DEQ, State of MS}. It is the closest island to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and consists of approximately 400 acres. It is part of the Mississippi Coastal Preserve

And for some reason Mommy felt compelled to snap a picture of this house. Maybe because they FINALLY finished building it. The construction crews and noise from the construction site interfered with the pleasure of our walk for ever so long, we were beginning to think they were never going to finish it. ~Fenris, reporting for ATCAD

  3. Just thinking about walking that bridge gave me the willies! Too high, too breezy...but I'll bet the view is spectacular! Quite a pile of bricks, that big house.

  4. Good job reporting, F. That looks like a nice beach area. I agree with your mom (and the law). A noisy windy bridge does NOT sound like fun for a doggie.

    Love and licks,
