Catching Up - August Beach Trip Rundown

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:

There was lots of wildlife outside too!
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...

And this gif is just for you, Ms. Stitching and Bacon:

    Not a fan of our oil rigs either.

  2. I like the puppy gif although clearly not as much as your dog loves the beach. I am glad you showed the Yankees what's what.
