Beautiful view of the sunset from the Dauphin Island bridge
fishing under the oil rigs
Poe & his spade fish
Cameron & his Spanish mackerel - we fried this guy for dinner
There was also a huge cobia just taunting us by swimming around the boat, but wasn't at all interested in the bait.
And there was still plenty of time spent enjoying the beautiful weather.
Saturday night, we rallied and took a moonlit cruise over to the Pelican Pub, a place full of locals. When the DJ looks like this guy:
You know it's an interesting place. And Mary may or may not have demonstrated the Hammer Time dance...
Sunday, we had a lazy morning then headed out to Sand Island to meet up with friends and relax in the water. Sand Island is a little strip of beach off Dauphin Island that is THE place to hang out, and Sunday it was full of boaters:
Mary's family house is back in that little cove
just add a tin roof and this is my dream house
Morrison getting some love from his momma
We actually headed home Sunday night and spent Memorial Day cooking out with friends and enjoying the holiday. We also made a large home purchase that I will share about later. :) I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and remembered those who have sacrificed much so that we can enjoy our freedom!
