We just got back from a small vacation at a hidden Gulf Coast gem, Dauphin Island, Alabama. This sleepy little town of 1200 folks bills itself as the Sunset Capitol of Alabama. No arguments from me on that one.
Hanging out on the beach made me plenty happy. You can also visit historic Fort Gaines (Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!) which is way cool. By the way, this is what my son’s head looks like shoved into a cannon.
What I loved the most was making my daughter take a Selfie with the back end of the pig. I am not allowed to post that picture online. Instead, just imagine your favorite teenage girl standing next to this and waving 🙂
