Cruising the Mississippi Sound

Nov. 13-15, 2017 
     We played golf at the oldest golf course in Mississippion Monday.  An enjoyable Donald Ross course in similar shape to what it would have been in the early 1900's.  Actually sort of a relief from resort courses all the time.

   We had promised Dan and Suzanne a trip on the boat and the seas had flattend out enough for a beautiful trip out to Fort Massachusetts on Ship Island. We tied up to a dock under repair and enjoyed lunch on the boat.  Trying to get them on the boat was a struggle with weather and schedules and we were glad we had realized early on how hard it was to make plans for people traveling with us.  But this finally worked out perfectly.  Suzzanne's brother, Chris Holt, who lives in the area was also able to come along.
      Wednesday the water was  choppy again,  but we were willing to brave it to continue our way home. The waves were crashing over the deck for about 4 hours till we got across Mobile Bay and inside of the outer islands at Gulf Port where things settled down.  But after a very long day we docked at Homeport Marina at Lulu Buffet's (Jimmie's sister) Restaurant as the sun was setting. 
      But we were back to my kind of Looping, a calm canal gliding between marinas and restaurants!!
