This was a perfect time to visit the Gulf of Mexico. It was still cool enough to not need the air conditioner, and the humidity was low. The park had it’s own dock, for fishing and viewing the local birds. The fort was fun to explore, and I spent one morning watching the pelicans, egrets, herons, and other water birds in the bay.
We also visited the battleship USS Alabama. The memorial park was well worth the cost of admission, in fact you can see most of it for free. Afterwards, we met our friends from Panama City, Mellynn and Bob Townson, for dinner . Delicious oysters!
