We were so excited when Pip and Puddles accepted our invitation. We decided to start the day with a hearty breakfast at Bayview Gourmet. I suggested the The Big Easy: Poached eggs on Holland Rusk topped with Canadian bacon, crabmeat, shrimp, and hollandaise sauce, and everyone agreed it sounded yummy. I thinks everyone enjoyed it. We ate on the patio as that is the only place they allow doggies. I eat here all the time with Tammy & Mommy so I was sure my friends would enjoy it.
Then we headed off to do some hiking at Gulf Island National Seashore located in downtown Ocean Springs.

After our hike we decided to head to The Walter Anderson Museum in downtown Ocean Springs to admire all the art work. You can read about Walter Anderson here.
Ohr - O'Keefe Museum of Art. I thinks we drove right past Mommy and her friend walking the bridge. People walks it all the time but doggies are not allowed to walk it.

Frank Gehry designed it.
Beauvoir - The Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library. It is very beautiful here. When the boy beans were small they went on an archaeological dig here (click to see pictures) and found lots of neat stuffs.
Now we all agreed we were starving so after consulting with Mommy about the best place to eat in Biloxi we headed to Mary Mahoney's Old French House. The exact date the Old French House was built is unknown, but Mrs. Byrd Enochs, owner and occupant for over fifty years, estimated the date at around 1737. The Restaurant was established May 7th, 1964. A favorite of Mississippi native, Elvis Presley, the restaurant is also rumored to be protected by a 2,000-year-old oak tree locals call “The Patriarch.”
Now Pip and Puddles have been very well behaved this whole trip I thinks they must be scared of Mommy she has a fearsome reputation as a disciplinarian. But we took them somewhere where they could really cut lose and have a good time.
Beau Rivage Resort and Casino. Scylla, Turin and Puddles went to check out the Spa and Salon. Us guys me, Pip and Socks went to the High Limit Lounge. Seems we were mistaken for some rich dude and his entourage and they were putting everything on his bill, BOL (I swear I don't know how they got that idea, but it's a good thing because after getting all purrty at the Spa and Salon the girls went shopping and spent a bundle). After winning big we decided to call it quits and we collected the girls and went to the Vince Gill concert.
We really enjoyed our visit with Pip and Puddles and were very sorry they had to leave. ~Fenris
