Shifting weather doesn't keep Spring Breakers away from beaches

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

If you've driven along Biloxi beach lately, you've probably noticed the rental vendors popping up. That's a good indication that Spring Break is upon us.

Recent weather would almost make you think otherwise. This may affect vacation plans for people planning to come to the coast.

Brennan Georges has worked for Biloxi Beach Jet Ski Rentals for the past two years. He says he's not expecting to see business slow down.

"People are going to want to get that adrenaline rush of riding that Jet Ski going 50 mph, you know?" Georges said.

He thinks it's only logical to go where it is likely to be warm.

"If it's getting cold here, just imagine where else it's getting cold," said Georges.

He said that during the peak of the season in June and July, he usually rents around 50 jet skis a day. This year, he saw more than 30 rentals on the first day. He said that is just the start of the busy season ahead.

Maria Camarillo and her family came all the way from Memphis, TN for a chance at good weather.

"We did think it was going to be cold, but we got lucky and it feels great," said Camarillo.

At least it was a lot warmer than back home in Tennessee.

The warm weather is also what brought April Albritton and her family to the beach. They had been planning this trip for a while, and the weather wasn't going to get in her way.

"The weather wouldn't stop me from spending time with them on the beach. Even if the water's cold, I still like coming to play in the sand with them," said Albritton.

Her four-year-old granddaughter, Allie, had her own reasons to be thankful for the wonderful weather.

"I like to get a tan," Allie said.

    In many areas of Front Beach in Ocean Springs, the sand is almost gone, blown away by gusty winds and choppy seas. But with the help of a $150,000 state tidelands grant, the city is hoping a program called "The Living Shoreline" will provide a permanent solution.
