Southern Tier Virtual Bike Tour: Leaving Louisiana and Entering Mississippi and now about to Alabama
We were able to take advantages of the amenities of a city of over 10,000 people. Picayune is the name of a Spanish coin.
Finding out about the areas that I virtually travel through is interesting. Today the obvious draw to the coast is to be by the Gulf of Mexico and enjoy the warmer temperatures during the winter. I have many friends that travel from the midwest to the south to get a break. These picture make me long for a trip.
In the early 1900s this area was know for the radishes grown here. These radishes were long and not like the ones that I see now in the store. Long Beach called itself the "Radish Capital of the World." The timber industry was big in this area. The enormously devestating hurricane Katrina (2005) wiped out much of this coastline and the communities. There has been a lot of hard work to build this back. The Choctaw were the native people in this area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choctaw
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
