Our friend, Marcie, saw that we were in Ocean Springs, MS where she had friends, Bev and Jim.  I “friended” Bev on Facebook and we arranged to call each other.

At seven yesterday morning Bev saw I was on Facebook and invited us to breakfast.  So we agreed to meet at McElroy’s. This place is right before the bridge that goes over to Biloxi.  The view across the water was pretty.


A large interior painting was very nice.


After meeting Bev and Jim we quickly became friends with a lot of common ground to discuss.


Bev and Jim camphosted and managed RV parks across the country when they fulltimed.  It was interesting to hear about the different places they have been and campgrounds they worked at. 

Breakfast was very good, especially the Shrimp and Grits I ordered.  The triangle of grits was pan fried topped with shrimp in a cream sauce….OMG….amazing…best I ever had.  I might have to go back to eat it a second time.  At $5.95 it was a bargain.

The other meals were equally good.

Bev gave us a list of places to visit while we’re here in Ocean Springs…much appreciated.

It was a cold and dreary day so we stayed inside most of the day.  I cooked up some pinto beans to mash and put together a red chile sauce.  Jim then fried off corn tortillas and cooked hamburger.  Together we assembled an layered enchilada casserole. (Thank you, Jim, for making me a separate mushroom and onion enchilada.)  Sandy and Charles enjoyed our concoction.

After another piece of that amazing Pecan Cheesecake Pie we all went over to Sandy and Charles’s and enjoyed a campfire.  It was really cold so we didn’t sit out too long, but it was very, very nice.


Remember, you are loved.


  1. How nice to meet friends of friends and become friends yourselves! That breakfast out sure looked good...thanks for taking the time to snap a pic of each dish. I wonder if people sitting nearby think when we take pics of our food to post in our blogs??? LOL

    1. Karen, Jim just hates when I take photos of all the food, but I still do it. I want to remember the dishes we've had. Everyone who goes out to eat with us know to put their hands up and out of the way when they are served their meal, so I can shoot a pic.

  2. Glad you enjoyed your breakfast with your friends.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

  3. I'm so glad you were able to meet up. I was astonished when I discovered you had never met. I honestly thought that between you and Bev and your 2 Jims you guys knew every Full timer out there.
