Bay St. Louis as seen from across the Bay in Henderson Point. What a charming town even from a couple miles way. Downtown Bay St. Louis, Our Lady of The Gulf, and the train Bridge can be seen in the picture.
Second Saturday on Main Street in Old Town Bay St Louis brought out some really cool cars this time. There was a cruising car club that set up in the Main Street parking lot with the mural. This was a great event and it was surely a hit with kids young and old. If you haven't been to a Second Saturday in Old Town Bay St. Louis, mark your calender they are on the 2nd Saturday of every month and go on from for 4:00PM til 8ish.
On a morning like this it is time to load the Kayaks and head out to the beach or the Bay St Louis Train bridge for some trout or redfish action. A reliable Kayak is a good choice for a low cost high enjoyment fishing machine. Generally fishing in a Kayak is more work and requires more sitting in a tight space, but the boat note is low and the fish aren't spooked from the larger profile. Fishing in a Kayak is also rewarding with a closer feeling to nature during your kayak fishing trip. Be safe, always wear a life jacket when fishing in a Kayak. It only takes a second to have some real problems in the water.
Many Kayak fisherman like the beach areas of Bay St Louis and under the Bay St. louis train bridge. The water in the bay can kick up quick, so keep a close eye on the weather when fishing from a kayak.
This morning was going to have the perfect sunrise. I convinced myself to hop out of bed to greet the colors of the day. I loaded up the camera and tripod and headed to Washington Street fishing pier in Old Town Bay St. Louis. The weather was cool and the water was calm. Boaters were using the launch in preparation for the great fishing ahead of dawn. The sun rose displaying a magnificent array of colors.
Here are a few of this morning's best sunrise photos over Bay St. Louis in Mississippi.

Bay St. Louis Community Hall
Bay St. Louis just built a state of the art Community Hall in the heart of the Depot District. It is just a beautiful building. The Hall can be rented out for parties and events. Its boasts a grand ball room with a stage at one end. Off to the side there is another room with huge sky lights. It kinda feels like an courtyard, but indoors!
