While on our Gulf Coast trip in January of this year, we stumbled across the Infinity Science Center near Pearlington, Mississippi. Almost 15 years ago, Infinity set its sight on inspiring, amazing and engaging. It’s mission is to be a place where guests can explore our earth, oceans and space through deepening levels of involvement. There are interactive exhibits, a lot of space program equipment, ecosystem monitoring, ocean exploration and more activities. We spent about 4 hours there one afternoon, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Outside the center is an area full of water, water plants, alligators and more. You can explore the mini ecosystem on elevated walkways. This Cattail (Typha Bulrush from the family Typhaceae) was one of many growing in the water in that area. I rather liked that it was losing some of its inner material. I’m not sure what it is called but it has a silky look to it.
“There’s nothing better for kids than a bucket and shovel at the beach. I grew up across the marsh from The Citadel. We loved buying chicken necks at the Piggly Wiggly, tying them to a string on a stick and catching blue crabs.” ~ Thomas Gibson
Thank you for your comments and critiques, they always make me happy!
Have a day full of discovery!
