Sunset on the Mississippi Gulf

 
Enjoying the view

The Mississippi Boat Party was a beautiful sunset cruise.  Guests from New Orleans to Ocean Springs (and one from Ottawa) enjoyed wine, beer, cocktails and the company of fellow environmental enthusiasts as they boarded historic “Captain Pete.” We set sail from Gulfport Yacht Harbor to dolphins jumping in the surf and brown pelicans fishing.  Andrew Whitehurst, GRN’s Water Program Director, spoke on local work we are doing protecting the Pearl River. 
Dinner was provided by Bayview Gourmet, Tony’s Pizzeria, and Coastline Caribbean. Art, jewelry, and Pilates classes were raffled off to lucky winners. Thanks to everyone who attended for making this year’s boat party an even bigger success than last year's and helping us continue the work we do restoring the coast.
