We were ready for a road trip...that includes a stop at Whataburger!
We have not had one in over a year! It was past time for this treat.
We had one for breakfast...it was on our way. Oh, so gooood.
We had to drive to Biloxi to find it.
On the way, we passed this lighthouse in Pascagoula. No time to visit as this is going to be a long trip.
Pascagoula is a town Jimmy Buffet sings about.
For those of you who know us, we like Jimmy Buffet and his tunes.
We drive though this tunnel...we are now in Mobile, Alabama.
Next is this long causeway.
We pass the USS Alabama Battleship.
Can you tell where we are headed? It is time to walk on a beach. We have not seen a sand beach in over a year!!! I collect shells!!!
And, yes, there is a refuge...Bon Secour. We stop for a little visit, sign in and get our passbook stamped.
Our only companion...a Great Blue Heron.
This is the little beach mouse they are protecting.
This is another reason for our trip...to see what this state park is like. We have heard so much about it. There are tennis courts (which I would like) and a swimming pool. These are pictured in the background. There are volley ball areas!!! Looks like a fun park. Maybe someday!!!
And our last stop..LuLus (Lucy Buffet) Jimmy Buffets crazy sista.
Her restaurant is in Gulf Shores...I snapped this picture of it from the bridge. Right on the water...
This is a fun place to stop and have lunch...it would have been more fun in the evening though. A live band performs.
It's been a year since I have had Gulf shrimp!!! Wallace had a cheeseburger in paradise!!!(a Jimmy Buffet song we like). And of course you get to listen to some of his tunes while you dine.
So, we had many reasons for this road trip. All good reasons!!!
Until next time...
