Somtimes during my travels around the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I would not be sure if the splinters and slabs before me were ever some sort of building. So, did Katrina do this, or was it a wreck anyway?
On this trip to Ocean Springs, though, I had a worthy tour guide in Jean.
She told me this was a fish market. The little spit of land was too small for a building, so the owner poured huge amounts of oyster shells to enlarge the area. And despite reservations from the city of Ocean Springs, he built his business right there on the beach.
