The scars left by Hurricane Katrina six years ago today are as apparent here as they are along most other stretches of Mississippi beaches. Drive along Washington Avenue just north of Beach Boulevard and there are several large holes where one can look through the palmettos and pre-storm live oaks and see the sparkling waters of the Mississippi Sound.
On some of these vacant lots there are ghosts of homes — driveways leading to nothing, slabs, patches of tile.
Still, it’s a peaceful scene, one that has not lost its allure since the devastation of Katrina. In some ways, it has even gained some. “I think beachfront property is just as attractive as it ever was,” Steve Mitchell, city operations manager, said. “It’s just a matter of matching a buyer and a seller.”
