We have been gypsies this summer. I don't know why I've had such travel fever, but it's been fun! On a whim, I decided to take the girls to Dauphin Island for a few days. We went to Mobile for a night to help Mimi celebrate her birthday, then we drove down to the island Tuesday. It was a great trip.
We stayed at the Holiday Isle condominiums, right on the beach near the public pier (the pier to nowhere, since it's no longer in the water!). The girls were really brave in the water, swimming and body surfing and looking for hermit crabs. It was all great until Emily and Abby got stung by jellyfish. Now Abby says she'll never go in the ocean again.
We had a great time with Leslie, Thomas, and Emily, and we were sad to leave. On they way home, we started talking about where we want to go next. DisneyWorld, DisneyLand, and Maine are all on the list.
