After two days of catching up with old friends Johhny and Diane Dixon, we headed further east toward Mobile. The rain was intense once again and we battled huge walls of water almost all the way to Mobile. We found a nice RV park nestled in a pecan forest and set up camp for three nights. The dropping nuts from the trees made huge BANGS on the roof of the camper...lots of laughs after we got used to the bombardment.
Our first day in Mobile was a busy day. We got the camper services with new oil and filter, did a bit of shopping for groceries and supplies, and enjoyed an afternoon movie.
The next day we devoted to exploring the battleship Alabama and the submarine next door. It was a full day with lots of ladders to climb. We had full run of both ships. The tour was self-guided and we got to see a lot of stuff normally not allowed at most ships.
