Day 5: sobering observations.

i hadn’t intended to post any more about the trip until i got home to South Carolina, but today’s “sightseeing” kind of hit me.

we drove into town yesterday, spending a goodly part of our jaunt on US 90 – picking it up in Biloxi and rolling along to the vicinity of Waveland. it was somewhat disturbing to see all the empty foundations and hollowed shells of buildings – but not like what we saw today.

today, we stood on the levee bordering the Lower Ninth Ward at the location of one of the major breaches – and, except for scattered new construction, there was nothing in front of us.

makes one thankful for having a roof overhead, among other things.
