Beach Boulevard and the town of Pascagoula are sandwiched between the shipyards, refineries, and the industrial port that have developed around the broad marshy mouth of the estuary. I was struck by the stark geometry of this section of shoreline - straight lines, perched beach, and a twist (curve?) to seawall design I was unfamiliar with. Although the homes behind Beach Boulevard are on rising ground and piles, most of the first tier of homes were gone.
