Alabama

After leaving Louisiana, we drove through Mississippi and on to Dauphin Island, Alabama.  Dauphin Island is a small barrier island south of Mobile, Alabama. Mississippi only has about 44 miles of gulf coastline and Alabama only has about 53. 




A view of the beach next to the campground



There were many oil and gas production platforms visible off the coast.



The interesting remains of a tree stump being eroded away by the ocean



Adjoining the campground is the Dauphin Island Audubon Bird Sanctuary.  Even thought we were too early for the spring migrants, we had a nice stroll through part of the sanctuary.

This Great-horned Owl had taken over an Osprey nest platform.



We drove to the west end of the island for one of the sunsets.
