We got up early with good intentions of what we were going to do for the day. We had breakfast and headed out early to take the ferry from Fort Morgan to Dauphine Island ~ then head over to the USS Alabama in Mobile ~ then go check out a State Park near there that we would like to visit another time. We made it to the Mobile Bay Ferry and lucky for us it was there and loading up. We were the last car to make it on, good we didn't have to wait at all! It is a small ferry that holds about 28 cars. I couldn't figure that out because there were about 20 on and it seemed crowded to me.
Only a little while after we pulled the car onto the ferry it began it's departure from Fort Morgan to Dauphine Island. It was a beautiful day and the waters were very calm and that was good thing.
As we chugged along we saw a lot of Natural Gas Rigs in the bay and surrounding areas. There was a big ship making it's way towards us... but it really didn't get that close!
We passed the other ferry and some fishing boats
Pelicans & Fort Gains... where during the battle at Mobile Bay in 1864, Rear Adm. David G. Farragut said the phrase "Dam the Torpedoes, Full Speed Ahead!!"
We traveled peacefully across the bay and finally reached out destination Dauphine Island
It was a fun trip and as we were waved off our plans for the day changed... to be continued!
Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!
