Day 42: Ocean Springs, Mississippi-Dauphin Island, Alabama – 82 miles

It was a long day and the group was wondering about rain and wind. It was overcast and the wind the first forty miles was hitting us pretty good. There was some respite from the great trees on the side of the road. We went over the Pascagoula River in the Pascagoula River Wildlife Management Area.

It was pretty either house boats with motorboats tied to the house.
