Good Riddance to T.S. Gordon!

Posted by Jody on September 5, 2018

“Prepare for the worst. Hope for the best.” That’s a rather common saying in Southern Mississippi. The traumas of Hurricane Camille and Hurricane Katrina are seared into the memories of our long-term coastal residents. Those were the worst!

Yesterday, in Harrison County, we prepared for the worst. Last night we got the best. Tropical Storm Gordon came ashore much farther east than had been expected.  We experienced moderate breezes, no rain, and (as far as we can tell) no measurable storm surge. The storm has already been downgraded to a tropical depression but the rains to come may mean flooding for some up north. Here, we will hope for the best for everyone in its path.

Greg and I headed out to the beach this morning as soon as curfew was lifted to see what we could see.

To the west, we saw the sunrise through the remaining rain bands:

The rain bands had also wrapped around to our east.

Good Morning!

Gooooood Morning, Gulfport!

There were a few more seashell fragments on shore than most mornings. Our seashells are generally oyster shells. Univalves found on our shores are almost always perfect homes to hermit crabs.

A few more seashell bits than usual.

Clearly, more happened over the water than on land in Gulfport, Mississippi. We found this navigational marker in the surf and reported it to the Harbor Master’s office.

Many thanks to everyone for your kind thoughts and caring words.

We are safe and sound!

High Flying Fun

Posted by Jody on July 14, 2018

Second Saturdays are all about colorful kites and family fun in Long Beach, Mississippi. There are plenty of kites on the beach for sharing or you can bring your own. Free kite flying lessons are available, as well.

Today’s weather was absolutely perfect for all shapes, sizes, and types, and it is always fantastic to see a splash of color in our sea of blue sky.

Here’s a look at today’s “Second Saturday Fun Fly.”

 

 

Y’all come on down and enjoy the brightly colored sky and breezes off the Mississippi Sound!

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!

Happy New Year, Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches!

Posted by E.G.D. on December 30, 2014

WordPress is early with our statistics, this year!  Thank you all for your wonderful support.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches:

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 230,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 10 days for that many people to see it.
