Pascagoula, Ms to Dauphin Island, Al

Today's ride was what we have come to call a "rolling rest day." That means it was a short (42 miles) easy day. Nancy and I rode together today. Since it was Sunday and we began early in hopes of beating the predicted rain traffic was very light. We crossed the Mississippi/Alabama state line around mile 18. At mile 37 we came to the start of a three and a half mile bridge. I sagged over it and to the condos.

We are staying in four lovely condos on Dauphin Island. The one I am in has a total of four bedrooms. Two have twin beds, one a queen and one a king. Because I have the single option I was assigned the king with a private bath a whirlpool tub. Very nice.

Our sag driver, our guide, our cook and I loaded back in the sag vehicle to go back to Barnacle Bill's. All but about four of the women stopped there for lunch. I had wonderful fried oysters.

Since my condo also house the cook and guide dinner this evening was in our large living room. Linda fixed shrimp and crayfish jambalaya.
