I have skipped Mississippi because we just drove through it and will be telling you about what we did when we reached our destination in Dauphin Bay, Alabama. Mom and Dad had surprised us with a beach house which they had rented out for us called Sunny Pit. The weather was not too sunny but we had a lot of fun. The island had the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Mississippi Sound on the other. Our house was on the gulf side and the waves were really choppy.
