Bob & Merry Nelsons Dauphin Island, AL Travels

Sept. 2, 2009 Dauphin Island and Mobile Bay Ferry After we left Mobile we headed south to Daupin Island via a long bridge over Heron Bay. After a short drive eastward we took a small ferry to more of the Gulf Islands. The ferry ride only took ½ hour but went by many oil rigs scattered around Mobile Bay and, of course, many Pelicans. The island was fairly barren and the houses all built on stilts and surrounded by sand. Actually, they were pretty ugly and I am not fond of nothing but sand. They were still worth seeing and glad we took the long way home.
