Rest Day Dauphin Island, Al

Dauphin Island is the perfect place for a rest day. Everything is so laid back here your really do rest. Lois S and I rode around the island looking for someplace to eat breakfast. We were referred to the Country Club. There was a little restaurant there and we each had a Cinnamon roll and coffee. Afterwards we rode to the post office to mail post cards. We then went to the Audubon Bird Sanctuary. We walked a quiet little trail to a lake. Then we rode to Fort Gaines. We just looked around but did not go in. We then rode to the other end of the island and then back to our condo. We both did a quick bicycle cleaning and then it was time for lunch.

Nancy, Lois and I rode to the Common Loon for lunch. I had sauteed shrimp. Wonderful! We we got back to the condos we had a mini reunion from the Mississippi River trip. Dusty, her sister and niece were in New Orleans and they drove over to see us. So nice of them. It was great to see them.

Tonight Lois, Nancy, Marni and I are going to ride back to Barnacle Bills for an early dinner. Then I am going to put on my pj's and do one more load of laundry so everything is clean when we head out for our last ten days. Life is so basic when on a bike trip.
