ot, hot, hot—welcome to south Mississippi in August. The only relief from the heat is water or never leaving the house! We chose to visit Big Bay Lake near Hattiesburg, MS. This simple Barn structure welcomes you to the lake. The barn doors slide open like shutters revealing the glass and steel doors underneath—so unexpected. The front of the Barn is a large porch with of course…rocking chairs all in a row. Along the side of the barn 3 aluminum watering troughs are filled to the brim with grasses, sweet potato vine and annuals. This Charming structure was my distraction from the heat—never met a barn, house or rock wall I could resist. Stay cool!
