While in Biloxi, MS I made sure that we found the Hurricane Katrina Memorial located across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel. The memorial is dedicated to the Gulf Coast victims of Hurricane Katrina. It was part of an Extreme Home Makeover project and was unveiled in February of 2006. There is a mosaic wave symbolizing Katrina’s storm surge and a glass case containing mementoes shared by residents of the Gulf Coast.
There is also a beautiful sculpture carved from a tree. There are over 50 of these sculptures carved from trees that were damaged during the hurricane.
Thank you to Debbie at Delicious Baby for hosting Photo Friday!
