On our next-to-last day in Mobile we decided to go to the beach. I'd never been to Dauphin Island and had heard many nice things about it, so we made the quick drive - and opted to take the three-mile-bridge route instead of the ferry - and spent the afternoon enjoying the sun, sand and water.
It was Bear's first visit to a beach and he loved it. Sam rode a few waves and we all enjoyed the warmth and the white "sugar" sand. Before heading back to Mobile, we explored the island a bit, and toured Fort Gaines.
