I just got back yesterday from my week long trip down to Dauphin Island, Alabama to see my dad's side of the family. We drive down every couple years or so. We have a beach house with a nice long dock facing the Mississippi Sound side. There's a great view of the bridge and some interesting houses nearby. There's not much to do there besides fishing, catching lizards, and swimming, but it's a lot more exciting than the rest of the state... which is really boring... except for the Montgomery Biscuits. lol. look it up... what a great mascot.
