Biloxi Light


The famous (or so I'm told) structure that sits right in the middle of the main beach drag in Biloxi. It survived Katrina and is featured on the Mississippi license plate. It's also apparently a nice place to stop for a read.


Happy Friday everyone! Click on the skywatch link to see more skies from around the world.

I visited Biloxi many years ago! Lovely lighthouse and a beautiful capture! Just curious, how on earth did you get moved from Paris to Mississippi??? Hope you have a terrific weekend!

Sylvia: Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I came to Mississippi for a simple reason... my wonderful husband got transferred here. It's different from Paris, but life here is good. :)

Beautiful shot. I also love lighthouses, maybe partly because there are none within hundreds of miles of me.

«Louis» appreciates this - he's always been fascinated by lighthouses.

LOL at your comment at Fabius, MI re how your husband suddenly found himself assigned all the yardwork...

A nice lighthouse and a good choice for "Sky watch Friday" photo!
Have a nice weekend!

Believe me, it is famous! I know this from a booklet on the most beautiful lighthouses in the world where it fugures with the one of Cape Hatteras and few other from the States!

I'd like to take a look around from the top.

I have a fondness for lighthouses. As a child living in a house on the shores of Lake Michigan, the mournful sound of the foghorn was a welcome sound to me. Love them all and have a book on the lighthouses in the US.

Gorgeous photograph! I haven't been to Biloxi for awhile...and wonder how things are coming along...it took a big hit during Katrina.

What a gorgeous SkyWatch!

Great photo....I guess it's can be a beacon especially seeing as it survived Katrina.....

Hilda said...

That last sentence just made me smile.

It's an elegant lighthouse and your photo is beautiful!

Halcyon said...

Thanks for all the comments everyone. Who knew the Biloxi Light would generate so much interest?

Hilda: If you enlarge the photo, you'll see a woman sitting on the steps reading. I thought it sort of an odd spot, but I guess she liked it!

Nice structure, it looks freshly painted and it does look like a great place to read a few pages.

It's great looking lighthouse, and a very good photo.

Beautiful. I like the lighthouse very much.

Some day I would love to make a huge collection of lighthouse photos. They are fascinating.

I'm another lighthouse lover.

Several of you guys commented about seeing the view from the top and the woman on the stairs. That is my wife and we are the lighthouse keepers for the biloxi lighthouse. We polish the lens, check the bulbs, and decorate it for holidays. We are both active duty Air Force stationed at Keesler AFB. The city has it open every day except for sunday, Amanda and I give tours every saturday.
