Day 218: Selma St, Mobile, AL
Sunny and mild.
Mobile has a year-round Mardi Gras store and we got some lights in gold, purple and green for decorating Arvi. Most of the homes on Katherine’s street are decorated for Mardi Gras, and there is a large lot in town with 50-100 RVs and room for twice that many more, parked for the Mardi Gras festivities. We got into the spirit and bought the lights and moon pies in four flavors.
We had brunch in Dauphin’s, a restaurant on the 34th floor of a bank building downtown, with a nice selection of Creole and other dishes. You can see much of the Mobile Bay on a sunny day like today.
We drove down to Dauphin Island, which was pretty cool. This island is changing at a dramatically fast rate. This pier was a fishing pier when Katherine was young. You can see it is far from shore now.
And the sea is moving under this building.
Dauphin Island is a relaxed place without the tourist traps that usually accompany vacation spots.
