Driving through the South

Kitties waiting to "help" dad record expenses

Our trip to Alabama was literally nothing to write home about, as the saying goes. We spent 3 days in a lovely new ownership park, Bella Terra, but the vast majority of the park was still under construction. We toured the Gulf Shores area and drove to the end of the island. We saw nothing that attracted us.

Our lunch at a local highly acclaimed restaurant everyone raved about was so bad, I sent my entree back for the second time in my life. It was totally uneatable. Oh well. We enjoyed the drive up Mobile Bay though Fairhope and Daphne, and stopped at Starbucks where at least I could get some dependable scones.

After 3 days and not one picture, we left driving on I-10 through Mississippi stopping only for fuel at Gulfport.

We crossed the Mississippi River at Baton Rouge, and drove north on MS 26 towards the town of Kinder. Here they have an Indian Casino with hookups. It's a good place to spend the night.

The following pictures were taken through the windshield. Bob was driving and I did my best to get a couple of shots since we have taken no pictures for the last several days. Now it's on to Texas and a visit with my daughter Julie and family.

Heading back to the West!
