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.

There were several dolphin feeding off the beach
