Apparently historical records mention a rise along the water where they landed, and the current house indeed sits on a rise that, for the area, towers above everything else (and is just about 1.5 miles from Fort Maurepas which was built by D'Iberville to garrison French troops). If this was the place where he originally landed, this oak likely grew near the banks during that time:
    A couple of really nice images Bryan, I especially like the oak tree. Some interesting history also.

    Thanks Kevin! I always like to take images that I can connect some history to.

    Here's one more from the same place:



    And, something different - I found this sunken sailboat on the coast of Biloxi. I was never able to get out there at low-tide, but maybe it'll be there still next visit. It was probably dredged up by the last hurricane, and will be similarly taken back by the sea in the next season or two.

    Same camera but with a 150mm, but cropped 4:5



    PS: one of my favorite things as a child visiting the coast of Mississippi was the S.S. Camille, a tugboat so named after the great 1969 hurricane that deposited it on shore (there was a souvenir shop next door that I visited often). Hurricane Katrina destroyed it and it was demolished a couple years later. Old sunken/rusting boats have a special feeling to me.

    Excellent, I know the Le Moyne Bros. pretty intimately--very much the OG's of French Louisiana :

    FWIW, if you're kicking around a bit west, the state park at old Fort Toulouse (most often known in the records as "Alabama Fort") is very much worth exploring there at the confluence of the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers--very much the heart of the Upper Creeks, and thus for a century very much on the mind of men from Savannah and Charleston (not to mention Whitehall and Versailles)

    Oh, near Montgomery - I'll have to remember that. There's a few places I'd like to look into more there.

    We're climbing out of a slump. The declination of the Sun is now increasing and longer days in the northern hemisphere.

    And yet winter is stubborn, and does not wish to leave. :-)

    Love the snowed-in Taco Truck Austin!

    I find it hard to visualize how that would be in real life. Most amount of snow I've ever seen is about 4-5 inches.

    Here's another boat, sweating in 80+ degree weather on the gulf coast
