Thanks for stopping by Long Beach, MS, Harrison County and joining me for a walk about. It has been awhile awhile since I have shared a walk with you. I have been focusing on the nuts and bolts of business in front of me rather than blogging. So here goes. My home is a little less than 1/2 mile from USM. Recently I heard about their fitness trail, so I thought I would give it a visit.
I am grateful that USM did not move for good after the storm. Of couse the buildings facing the Beach were destroyed, or partly destroyed. Presently some classes are back in operation in the buildings closer to Rail Road St. The other day I noticed the campus now has a cafe open to the public.
I was delighted to find these inspirational quotes along the Life Trail.
We have all heard this quote--but, you know what? I don't think we hear it often enough.
(Hey, everyone I am well on my way to becoming superior...)
Thanks to USM, and thank you to Playworld Systems, and of course an offering of my gratitude to the creators of the quotes that Playworld used.
Walking past the fitness trail North to HWY 90, here are some of the sights along the way. Please remember that the HWY 90 area was the last to get infrastructure back. There is still some beach front property with slabs left; but remember there is also many wonderful homes for sale that are newly built or have been restored.
Kudos to this For Sale By Owner for doing a very nice sign. The next 3 photos are to define location and to show the common view that the following properties share.
If you are obsessed with water front property--there is a LOTs available on HWY 90/Beach Blvd. Many lots are listed by REALTORS, on a whim, I just wanted to show for sale by owners today. The photos here are only a small sampling of what is available.
Note the lot on the right above is next to our new Burger King.
I spoke with the homeowner of this house and got her permission to photograph illustrating building height requirements. She and her husband are very stressed as it is taking much longer than projected to get her home finished. It seems the problem is the contractor being able to keep reliable workers. Sadly, I have talked with several elderly home owners lately who were disappointed in the work they received from contractors in re-building.
This cross is still laying on the ground. It is located to the West side of USM campus, at the front facing Beach Blvd.
