Harry and Judy's RV Trip
28th May 2016 - Summer 2016
Day 3-May 28, 2016-Gulfport, MS

Day 3-May 28, 2016-Gulfport, MS

Nice day-85, some cloud cover.

Spent the morning looking at maps and campground books and making reservations for the next few days.  Packed a lunch and headed west on Beach Blvd. to Gulfport.  Stopped at the Island View Casino, much bigger than Boomtown, and won and lost a few bucks, ending up ahead by about $24.  Along with $25 free play we each got a free buffet so we walked around the hotel and sat on their veranda for a while until we got hungry.  Beautiful view of the beach and a lot going on.  Nice pools and rec area, too.  Headed back to Biloxi again on Beach Blvd., now getting a bit busier with people picnicking on the beach, playing volleyball, ski-dooing, swimming, even a couple of weddings on the beach.  The white sandy beaches are accessible and free to everybody with plenty of parking right on the side of the road. They’re not crowded, even on a Saturday night before Memorial Day.  There’s plenty of beach for everybody.  We went back to the campground for a while, then decided to take a walk,  Beautiful night out.  We ended up back at Boomtown Casino.  We discovered they have a second floor which is supposed to be “smoke free”.  Guess they don’t realize smoke goes up.  They had a great band playing and the place was packed.  We proceeded to lose what we won this afternoon.
