Luna Sea, Garsia, Indians, & Mardi Gras Dreams

Below are some more of the pictures I took around Biloxi after Hurricane Katrina.


Biloxi - The name of this shrimp boat in the bank parking lot is the Luna Sea. A reliable source has said she went through the Hard Rock Cafe parking garage in the background on the right.






Biloxi - What's left of the Porter Ave Pier. I liked the message, garsia dios. Thanks are being given to God. For lives saved and for the generous help and volunteers from across the US and Canada.





Biloxi - Moran's Art Studio - I used to enjoy myself looking at the wonderful paintings and prints by these talented local artists who are all related. When they did an expansion almost 20 years ago, an Indian burial ground was discovered.






Biloxi - The front of this house on Porter Ave was torn off. I felt like a voyeur looking in and seeing the damage but the Mardi Gras beads on the light fixture caught my eye.

It is heartbreaking. But as you've documented, it's coming back. Great pictures, as always.

esther,

I was actually laughing when I took the picture of the boat. The bank sign has washed out some and it's not easy to read, "Stop here for next available teller". The name of the boat didn't help either, Luna Sea or lunacy.

Some one is trying to get me a video of the storm surge coming in at D'Iberville.
