Across the Pond is a unique garden store in Huntsville, Alabama. They have tons of gardening stuff, statues, and even sell ice cream. However, my favorite part is the animals.
Also, I must confess to sticking my hand in the pond and trying to touch the fish. The fish didn’t like that very much.
Bill’s Honey Farm is located in Meridianville, Alabama. The friendly owner is willing to talk to visitors about his bees and his operation. He also sells fresh honey and candles made from beeswax.
Bill’s Honey Farm is a great place to visit if you want to learn more about bees and would like to get a close up look at a beehive without getting stung.

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.
Alligator Alley is an animal sanctuary near Mobile, Alabama. The animals were rescued from poor living conditions and placed in the sanctuary.
As the name applies, there are a lot of alligators; however, they also have snakes, lizards, and turtles.
This is a fun place to visit. You can feed the alligators, touch some of the animals, and learn a lot about reptiles in general.
It’s just a guy and his horse hanging out at a gas station, like you do in Alabama.
