In late August, after hubs finished the Step 2 exam - that killer 8hr exam in your 3-4 year of medical schoool - we went to Dauphin Island to relax.
Dauphin Island is a beautiful barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico just off mainland Alabama.
We went to Fort Gaines and shot cannons at the Union like real Southerners.
I only wish our gulf views weren't marred by oil rigs. I didn't realize there were so many just off shore.
We went to the Estuarium and saw all the snuggliest of sea creatures:
So many birds including herons, terns, pelicans and gulls. We saw skates and hermit crabs in the water and lots of fish.
But most importantly I got to put my toes in the sand...
