The days are getting so short! There’s not much daylight for doing anything. All we did today was move out of Gulf Islands National Seashore, Davis Bayou Campground, driving east on I-10 to Gulf State Park, Gulf Shores, Alabama. A trip of only 100 miles.
As usual, we did not have a reservation anywhere. It’s just how we roll. So, taking a chance, we we stopped at Gulf State Park at Gulf Shores, Alabama, to see if they had a spot for us. They had lots of room, no problem. This park has over 500 spaces and it’s one of the nicest state parks we have ever been in. It’s more like a resort. All the spots look nice and level and have full hookups. Our space is in a small circle with six others on the perimeter. There’s a large community fire pit in the center. We met our neighbors, most are from northern states and are here through the winter. We are the transients, since we will only be here for seven nights.
There is a cool Nature Center here with taxidermy and loads of information about the local wildlife. There are some tanks with live turtles, a pool with a baby alligator, and several snakes too.
We’ll be here a week, so more to come.
