NOAA called for light and variable winds for Mobile bay. The sea bouy and mid bay weather station confirmed this in real time at about 9 am this morning. So we reluctantly hauled anchor and headed east to our next destination, Gulfshores Alabama. This was one perfect anchorage, and I was sorry to leave it so soon.
Before we left, I rowed the dingy to the spit of beach off our stern so scupper could enjoy himself and I can beachcomb ( enjoy myself 🙂 ). I found some cool rocks, two I can not identify at all. I will send them to my very smart and inquisitive nephew who will have fun tracking down these Jane Does.
Daulphin Island anchorage
Wind shifted several times in the night. We did a couple 360s cha cha cha. We are very happy with our anchor. We had the Manson 45 Lb out with 100ft of 3/8 chain and a 25 ft snubber.
Very little traffic out in the calm Mobile bay
Not in Kansas anymore. The terrain changed dramatically from swamp to big pine tree forests lining the ICW.
Seems everyone owns a boat or boat accessories around here.
Buddy boat, Palm Latitude.
Brian getting the lines and fenders ready for our next stop. Scupper overseeing the job.
Approaching Homestead Marina
It, uh, well.. BIG!
Big Restaurant, LuLu’s. Scupper started barking at the people, demanded a hamburger I’m sure.
I got nothin.
More cool Boats! Fisher.
Coolest vessel in the whole joint, Rain Dog 🙂
Scupperdoodle! yes, those are kiss imprints on the ground 🙂
Next anchorage is Pensacola
