This morning we headed into Mobile to see what there was to see. Unfortuatley it was Sunday and lots of things were shut. I wish we had more time so we could wait and see things on Monday, but we don't. We visited Fort Conde, a partial reproduction of a French fort, which was kind of interesting. There were some detailed dioramas of the war between the French and the British for control, but other than that there really wasn't much more to see. We drove around town some, to have a look, but as I said there really wasn't much to see as it was Sunday.
We decided to drive to Pensacola in Florida for lunch. This was really just a token effort to go to Florida to say that we have been to Florida, even though we won't be visiting any of the more famous parts like Miami or Orlando, or even venturing down the panhandle. Still, we got a skillet meal from Wal-Mart, and found a nice place along the coast to stop and have a little picnic. Alex was obsessive in her search for fire ant nests, to make sure that we were not in any danger at all of being stung. When she was satisfied we had a nice meal. We sat there until the sun went down and then started to figure out our next move. There was a tropical storm heading for the area, so we thought it best to start moving North, so that we would not get caught in it.
We headed back North into Alabama to a town called Enterprise where once again we found a Wal-Mart to spend the night it. The deja vu continues everytime we travel and walk into a Wal-Mart that looks exactly the same as the last one, but still it is a good safe place to park, and it has the advantage of an easily accessible toilet in the middle of the night (which would be horrible to otherwise try and track down in night time emergencies)
