Mobile, Alabama has quite a few things going for it. We’ve got Mardi Gras, which originated here, in case you didn’t know that. New Orleans can SUCK IT! We’ve got oak trees that will make your jaw drop. And we’ve got beautiful beaches with brown sugar for sand…well, as of right now they are still beautiful. We’re all waiting patiently for this oil spill thing to either ruin our beaches forever or just go away.
My favorite little slice of land here on the Gulf Coast is the Dauphin Island Bird Sanctuary beach. Want me to take you there? Let’s go!
First, you should know the geography. Most people that don’t live on the gulf coast have no clue that Alabama has beaches. Well, we do.
The purple circle shows where we live. The red circle shows our favorite beach spot, about a 45-minute drive away. But there’s also Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. We got beaches, people! Florida is on the right-hand side of the map and Mississippi is on the left.
What a handsome driver.
Anybody wanna go fishin’?
The childrens were happy campers!
“Dauphin Island: Alabama’s Birdiest Coastal Town!”
I’ve always loved the look of these little boat houses.
Yay! We’re here!
I bet you’re wondering why we are driving into the woods, right?
Well, that’s because you have to HIKE to this beach. Yep. Totally worth it.
Because it all of a sudden opens up to the beautiful beach!
I love that there are trees on the beach. Its a great spot to tie up the kids…I mean dogs.
Look at that beautiful scenery! The Hubs looks nice too.
Molly’s such a ham.
Look! Its my new bathing suit that was gifted to me by my bestest friend, Ashley!!! Thank you, Ashley!
(Sidenote: Anybody wanna take my muscles away? Cause I look like a body builder, but I don’t even lift weights. Its a curse.)
Look at my beautiful family!
So that’s our beach. Our own little piece of Heaven on Earth. For now. At this moment, the Coast Guard and HAZMAT crews are on these beaches, 24/7, and we are sooo not allowed. Not cool, BP. Not cool at all.
