Ahhhh...island living!! Me and my girl friend Von went down to Dauphin Island Saturday to catch some rays. Another friend of mine has a house right on the bay, so we laid out there. This was a big weekend for Dauphin Island, because it was the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo. People come from all over to fish in this rodeo. There were 1,000s of people there. We didn't actually stop and go in the rodeo area, because there was no where to park, and way to many people. So we just drove by everything. There where vendors set up everywhere selling food, shirts, you name it! Nice huh!
We got to be by the water, but in the pool! Can't beat it! Later that afternoon we decided to head to Dauphin Island (which is about 5 minutes away). This is the Dauphin Island bridge. You may or may not remember last year when Lam Luong threw his four children of the bridge....well this is the bridge.
Von took all of the pictures for me while I was driving...so enjoy the ride....
Peanuts for sale!
Those skinny little buildings are condos! I have always wanted to go in them. They don't look big enough for a bed!
There were people everywhere and the traffic was really bad
This is the elementary school...on the beach!
The Sheriffs were out everywhere. These just happen to be on horses
Fort Gaines is the sister fort to Fort Morgan that I visited while I was at Gulf Shores
Dauphin Island Sea Lab. This is one of the NEATEST places to visit
I LOVED this house! There are some really neat houses on the island
After riding around the island...we headed back over the bridge
This is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at! They have great food!
Dauphin Island is such a neat place. It is much smaller and more quaint the Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. It is very family oriented.
Von and I spent the whole weekend just hanging out. The Hunter was fishing in the deep sea rodeo and hers was out of town. After laying out Saturday we made some chicken alfredo and watched a few movies. Sunday we went to Old Time Pottery and South Eastern Salvage...I love both of those places. It was a great relaxing weekend.
The Hunter didn't win anything, but he did catch some great fish that we will be frying up soon!
