Yesterday I spent the day in the area of Mobile, Alabama, and Dauphin Island, the latter of which is breathtakingly beautiful. I’ve never been to Mobile, but I wanted to visit because it seems so strange; a city technically part of Alabama, but so far away from the rest of the state, and so very different from it, that it might as well be a world away.

A ship that participated in a naval skirmish reenactment in the bay.
Part of the naval action, though it’s hard to tell given all the pleasure craft.
The USS Alabama, a WW2-era battleship parked in the bay. I didn’t visit on this day, since I plan on making a slightly more extended Mobile visit in the future.
Yours truly, mooning over the sight of the ocean and ships while taking a ferry.
Part of the battlements of Fort Morgan
Watching a naval battle take place between oil derricks, beyond a fleet of pleasure boats, and underneath flying tour helicopters is a little surreal. I’m used to reenactments because Selma hosts one every year, but our park has the advantage of seclusion; the only outside element that intrudes is a water tower.
