“137 years later, Memorial Day remains one of America’s most cherished patriotic observances. The spirit of this day has not changed – it remains a day to honor those who died defending our freedom and democracy.”

Snow on the beach in Pass Christian.

Merry Christmas from The Pass!

This was the fabulous wintery scene on Pass Christian’s beach earlier this month. I have no clue what this sandy guy’s name is but he shows up each year to wish everyone a Merry Christmas from “The Pass.” We’re always delighted to see him!

We wish you a Merry Christmas too!

December Nights and Harbor Lights

Posted by Jody on December 19, 2017

Gulfport Mississippi Harbor Lights Winter Festival

Gulfport Harbor Lights Winter Festival

“The sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour on the hook
Caye con les, no work today, let’s shell the ol’ log book
The waterfront is reveling, the season has begun
The sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour having fun.”

~A Sailor’s Christmas by Jimmy Buffet~

Christmas on the Water

Posted by Jody on December 18, 2017

Who doesn’t love a parade? On the Mississippi Gulf Coast, we have a parade for any and every reason! Seriously. You barely come to the end of the Christmas holidays and here comes Mardi Gras complete with up to 26 parades scheduled across our coastal communities. St. Patrick’s Day, Crusin’ the Coast, Veterans Day? You name it, we line the floats up. Don’t even get me started on the throws! You wouldn’t believe the things we’ve caught. Shot glasses, beads, footballs, beads, carrots, beads, backpacks, beads. Oh, and did I mention the beads?

But in my opinion, best of all are the Christmas lighted boat parades. In Long Beach, during the Sea Santa Sail-A-Bration, festively decorated boats cruise along the streets on boat trailers in a waterless boat parade. Gulfport hosts their yearly glittering Christmas on the Bayou parade and Biloxi ushers in the holidays with Christmas on the Water, another annual event showcasing still more spectacularly lighted boats.

While most folks pack a blanket and watch from the beaches of Biloxi for Christmas on the Water (or line the waterside edges of the casino parking garages), this year, we were thrilled to sail onboard the 100′ Capt. Pete which usually serves to ferry summer day-trippers to and from Ship Island.

Come along with us as we sail into the calm waters of the Mississippi Sound with this shimmering fleet.

Welcome aboard!

And that, my friends, is how we celebrate Christmas on the Mississippi Gulf Coast!

Merry Christmas, y’all!

Christmas Tree by the Sea

Posted by Jody on December 2, 2017

Here’s an oldie but goodie with a few ornaments to inspire your own holiday decorations. ~ Have a fabulous season of fun and family!

Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches

Greg and I spotted this beautiful shades-of-the-sea Christmas tree at the Hotel del Coronado in sunny Southern California.  It was tucked away near the downstairs shops by a little snack bar. I’m so glad we went exploring! This fabulous Christmas tree was chock-full of wonderful ideas for a very crafty new year!

“O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!” ♫

~ O Christmas Tree, Traditional Christmas Carol

Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a many, many happy beachy days in the New Year!

On This Veterans Day –

Posted by Jody on November 11, 2017

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

— John F. KennedyIMG_0132

Thank you to all of our veterans!  We hope you can take some time to relax and enjoy the day.  You’ve earned it!
