Harry and Judy's RV Trip

Day 4-May 29, 2016-Ocean Springs, MS, Beau Rivage Casino and baseball

Day 4-May 29, 2016-Ocean Springs, MS, Beau Rivage Casino & Baseball

Another beautiful day-85 degrees and sunny, a bit warmer than the last few days.  Started out going about 20 minutes east to a little town called Ocean Springs, a friendly little town with gift shops, where the owners offered us coffee, lemonade or punch every time we went into a store.  Nice little parks and shady, tree lined streets.  We walked around for a bit then drove down to the harbor where people were getting ready to spend the day on the beaches and in the gulf.  Sail boats, ski-doos, water skiers were already in the water and grills were being fired up on porches and on the beach.  We drove back to Biloxi and went to the Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino to try our luck.  We both won and lost and won and lost and in the end came out about $20 ahead.  We had a lot of fun doing it.  Across the street from the hotel is American Star Field at MGM Park, home of the Biloxi Shuckers Minor League Baseball team.  We got there early and watched them warm up.  It was family fun day and also Military Appreciation Day and we enjoyed a wonderful pre game military show that ended in the National Anthem like I’ve never seen or heard it before.  A military group presented the flags with a 3-gun salute followed by taps.  You could hear a pin drop in the stadium it was so quiet.  Very moving.  Short game, only 2-1/2 hours but a good game.  Lots of fly balls came our way and once a bat came flying over the net into the section next to us and smacked a lady in the arm.  They wouldn’t let her keep the bat.  After being booed, they came and gave her a ball and had EMS look at her arm.  The home team, the Biloxi Shuckers beat the Mobile BayBears 7-3, it’s always nice when the home team wins.  We had a great time in Biloxi but we’re moving on tomorrow, heading west.  We’ll have to keep an eye on the weather, Texas seems to still be having troubles.
