If you’re hitting up the small shops in Ocean Springs today, make sure your are properly fed and caffeinated! ☕️🍴
@brighteyedbrewco has you covered with hot & cold coffee options. If you need help feeling in the Christmas spirit, take a sip of their peppermint drinks. They are doing coffee right! I finally tried their waffles and OH MAN are they good. Their goal was to taste like a beignet without a fryer and they did just that! I’m not generally a “sweets only” for breakfast, but this will be a rule a break again. I went with just a powdered sugar coating and it was perfect. 👌🏼
This coffee stop is connected to @oceanspringsinn right on Washington. What’s your go-to order here?
And I have officially wrapped on Christmas photos for 2018. All galleries have been delivered, as well as cards for those who ordered cards! Thank you all so much! This was by far my busiest season, yet! ❤️ - Courtney
Hitting the skies today for a work trip, but had to take a drive down 90 to take in the views and grab a drink from @coastroastgulfport. I love peppermint mochas, but they are usually on the sweet side. The ladies there cut mine with dark chocolate and it’s perfect. ☕️
Back to the Landmass on Friday to do some Christmas shopping. What #LandmassEats should we grab while shopping the coast this weekend? 🍴🍲🎁
The Chapel of the Cross is located between Madison and Flora, Mississippi. It is a beautiful Gothic revival style church completed in 1852. Built with bricks hand made by slaves from the Annandale Plantation, the exterior has a bell tower and arched entrances. The beams inside are all hand hewn oak.
The chapel and its grounds are purported to be haunted by two spirits, but up to four different manifestations are reported by different sources.
When I visited the chapel back around 2009, a woman who identified herself as one of the ministers related a story of a past caretaker who decapitated his mentally disturbed wife in the chapel and then hanged himself from its rafters.
She stated there were reports of blood stains appearing and disappearing on the floors, organ music as well as unsettling giggles coming from the locked chapel at night.
There are stories of a young woman weeping at the grave of Henry Vick, a descendant of the founder of Vicksburg. Mr. Vick and Helen Johnstone, whose parents built the Chapel, were to be married. Unfortunately, Mr. Vick lost a duel and his body interred in the cemetery behind the church. The weeping woman is said to be Helen Johnstone.
