Day 220: Selma St, Mobile, AL
Cloudy and warm.
Tom and I went for a nice long walk in Mobile. Magnolia Cemetery is a few blocks from Katherine’s house. There are 50,000 burials there. It is an interesting place with a big section of Confederate soldiers.
We walked all around and read several informational signs, then looked to leave the cemetery but couldn’t find an exit. So we walked most of the fence on the inside, as well as many of the main routes, until we finally found an open gate.
You could see the downtown buildings from there.
Katherine took us to Wintzell’s Oyster House in downtown Mobile. It was a seafood taste fest:
Fried green tomatoes
Sautéed crab claws
West Indies salad
Shrimp and grits
I could see joy in the faces of my companions.
