Dauphin Island, Alabama

Gwen and I went to Dauphin Island, which is located in Mobile County, Alabama.  It’s connected to the mainland by the Gordon Persons Bridge.

Dauphin Island was named after Louis XIV’s great-grandson.  He was the heir (the dauphin) and future Louis XV of France.

This is a beautiful place to visit, with white sandy beaches, Sea Lab – Estuarium, a military fort dating back to the 1800’s, Audubon Bird Sanctuary, walking trails, restaurants and places to shop.
