A Celebration and a Vacation

To celebrate passing the milestone of 10,000 views on the blog, which happened around 3 PM last Thursday (did anyone but me notice?), MissPres is taking a little vacation this week. Everybody deserves a little time off, right? And just in case you think I’ve become a lazy slacker, you can rest assured that in fact, I’ve long been a lazy slacker, so it’s nothing new.

I should also mention that MissPres has also recently had its 215th post and its 375th comment? We’re movin’ on up, ya’ll!

I know that some of you are so addicted to checking out MissPres that you’ll be basket cases by the end of the week if you don’t get your daily dose.  Never fear, stop by each day this week and live a Mississippi beach vacation vicariously–it’s almost as good as being there.

Check into the Broadwater and spend some time unwinding by the pool–hopefully those kids won’t be too noisy.

"Broadwater Beach Hotel, Biloxi, Mississippi. Showing the beautiful pool. Located on the scenic Mississippi Gulf Coast in a park-like setting, offering excellent swimming, elegant restaurant facilities, delightful shops, 18-hole golf course, and yacht marina." A Deep South Postcard.

In case the Broadwater Hotel is a little too rich for you, get your own little cottage at the Gulf Haven Motor Court:

  1. Sad that the Broadwater was allowed to slip into alarming decrepitude before its eventual demolition. I wonder what might have happened with the property if it had never been bought by President Casinos? I remeber seeing the Broadwater in 1998. By then, nearly all vestiges of propriety had vanished, leaving a poorly maintained shell with a tatty riverboat out front. In the early 1980s, the hotel still retained a bit of its former glory with good restaurants, nicely maintained grounds and good service. I wonder when Cotton Fore and the Roy Anderson Co. will get their act together and do something with the property? It is speculated that they overpaid by a big margin.
