Happy Shrimp Season

If you are feeling down in the dumps from the start of hurricane season and Monday’s hurricane post, maybe the start of shrimp season with the promise of wonderful fresh shrimp will lift your spirit.

The horizon south of the coast was lit up last night by boats anxious for the season’s 6:00 am start today.  So whether you are an old lugger or a steel hull trawler, may your season be plentiful.

The picturesque eastern top of the Biloxi peninsula lies between Back Bay Biloxi and the Gulf of Mexico. Shrimp and oyster boats dock before beautiful St. Michael's Church which echoes the sea in its shell-like dome and the fish-and-nets motif of its stained glass windows. Biloxi, Miss.

A pre-Camille postcard from a previous MissPres post shows the docks and remnants of the seafood processing on Beach Boulevard.
