While the board met, other tour participants took the opportunity to check out our hometown of Biloxi! After a quick bite of breakfast at the Coastal Research and Extension Center, a few folks played nine at nearby Sunkist Country Club. A few folks opted to do a little shopping, and some enjoyed the time sleeping in or lounging around at the Beau Rivage. A few of us took a ride on the Biloxi Tour Train.
Plus our tour guide, Carla, gave us some lagniappe (that’s a “little something extra”): a quick stop at the Biloxi Mardi Gras Museum!
Then we were off to visit the Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
There were nature walks and boat rides…and even a gator siting!
Dinner was especially special. We dined aboard the USS Alabama battleship!
And of course, we ended the day with a magnificent sunset over Mobile Bay!
