Crusin’ the Coast…Ron & Jeff style!


Well? It’s not the actual annual “Crusin’ the Coast” event, but yesterday, J & I took my in-laws (his dad and step-mom) to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to visit some of our favorite cities (Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian, Biloxi, and Ocean Springs) and their offerings (restaurants, shops, and bars). They are visiting from Colorado.

Here are Jerry & Wendy on the front porch at our place.

First stop- Bay St. Louis!

We dined at 200 North Beach and strolled through our favorite shops including Bay Breeze.

Second stop- Pass Christian!

We popped into Art in the Alley for my favorite spread. They were out (boo who!), but the owner will mail me two jars of the jalapeno raspberry jam at the end of the week. I am addicted to it.



Third stop- Biloxi & the Beau Rivage!

The lobby displays are always great. Take a look at the size of the white pumpkins.

I especially loved the homage to Breast Cancer Month.


We popped into one of the bars for a beer. Cheers!


Last stop- Ocean Springs!

We walked down Washington Street and popped into a couple favorite stores, The Hillyer House & Gina’s.

We then drove down to the beach and walked along the waterfront and pier. The weather was amazing.

After a stand still on I-10 for a 6 car pile up, we returned home and ordered some Reginelli’s. Yum!!!!


More fun today…

Love the Gulf Coast, y’all!


  1. The weather could not have been more perfect for your jaunt to the Gulf Coast. I'm sure Jeff's parents really enjoyed it! Enjoy your Sunday, and Geaux, Saints! :)

  2. Did you tire them out yet? Say hello for me.


    1. Jeff tires us all out. He gotta go, go, go!!!! Pack it all in all the time. xo

  3. That looks like a wonderful day. I love that drive along the coast and next time I make it I'm going to stop at some of your favorite shops and treat myself!!! Hugs, Linda

  4. Love those white pumpkins, and I seriously need one of those Bloody Marys! Love this post.

  5. Looks like a fun day! I recognize quite a few of those stops! :)
