We spent one pleasant day in Alabama. We went to a town called Fairhope which started out as a utopian community but is now just a regular community. The town has a sweet old-fashion feel to it. Then we headed to Mobile and walked around a bit but quickly discovered there isn’t much to do there. It’s actually the home to the first Mardi Gras celebration in the US so there were traces of that in the downtown area. What to do when there’s nothing to do? Go fishing. We tried live shrimp this time and the man at the bait shop told us: if you don’t catch anything, it’s your fault. We tried the pier by the USS Alabama and nothing. Then we went out a bit and again…nothing. Oh well.
