This weekend was one of Jerry's "short" weekends at school. Every other weekend he gets a three day weekend, as the base shuts down on Friday. This weekend was not one of those weekends, so instead of him driving home we drove over there to spend the day with him. It was a good day, just really long on the road. The kids and I left here around 940 this morning and got home around 10 tonight.
We went out to lunch at the Beau Rivage at their buffet. Then we decided to drive to the Gulf Coast Gator Ranch, in Moss Point MS. When we started out for the drive over we were thinking that it was in Ocean Springs, so fairly close to the base. Unfortunately it is not as close as we were thinking. We had a great time however, and we went on the air boat ride. We paid for a 30 minute trip, but we were out for at least 45 minutes. Our guide was very nice, and the ride was very enjoyable.
After our trip to the Gator Ranch we went out to dinner, then took Jerry back to the base and then the kids and I came home.
Now for my gas prices rant. Why is it that in Mississippi and Alabama that gas prices are any where between 10 and 20 cents cheaper a gallon than here in Crestview? Tell me how that makes sense.
