Everyone loves a little bit of water fun, and the Bay St. Louis splash pad is a great place to bring kids of all ages to cool down this summer. Admission is free, and the covered picnic area is perfect for parties of all sorts. Located on the corner of Ulman and Dunbar Ave.
The splash pad is closed at 7 PM each night. Smoking is strictly prohibited and enforced. The fire hydrant has a touch activated control that restarts the splash pad to full power. So if you get there and the water is barely squirting, just tap the fire hydrant and watch out because more water is coming.
Walking through Old Town Bay St. Louis today, we found this great organic art peice on the fence next to The Mockingbird's Stage. A great colorful piece that has an organic and folk arts appeal. Catch it while you can as the rain will surely send this treasure to the past. It is things like this that make living on the coast of Mississippi wonderful!
We got to share this picture of the U-Boat model U-166 that was on display on Biloxi Beach. This is a model of the U Boat that was sunk either by a Coast Guard Plane flying out of Houma, LA or the Robert E. Lee's depth charges. The U-166 was found a few years back in about 5000 feet of water. U-Boats were common in the Gulf of Mexico during World War II. The model is very detailed and seems to be to scale.
A truck can be seen picking up the Rental Jet Skis on Biloxi Beach. It is just odd to see a big truck intentionally drive into the Gulf of Mexico. After seeing how well the loading works, we understand and applaud their choice. Neat to see if you are out on Biloxi Beach!
