We had a day to kill, so we chose to spend one more day on a beach. Waveland, Mississippi was the closest beach to New Orleans with a campground. It was a cloudy day, but still a great way to end our last “free day” as our epic adventure came to an end. If you look closely, you can see a big piece of a house stuck in a tree at our campsite. Eight years later, we still saw lots of remnants of Hurricane Katrina on the Mississippi coast, but they’re rebuilding really well.
It was no coincidence that we found a ton of dead things washed up on the beach — I think it was symbolic of the end of our adventure.
