This morning we left Dauphin Island, Alabama, by taking a ferry off the island to Fort Morgan, Alabama. We traveled the Gulf Coast all day. The Alabama coast is known as the “Redneck Riviera” and is lined with huge condominium high rise buildings and hotels. We marveled at the number of units contained on this strip of beautiful white sand beach. We had lunch at Moe’s BBQ on Brian’s recommendation and found it to be excellent.
Our route took us along the coast into Florida, the eighth and final state on our tour. As we road through Pensacola, Fl. we came across one of the biggest industrial type ships we had ever seen. It was a Global 1200 deep water pipe laying vessel that was incredible in it’s scale.
After 87 miles of high traffic roads, usually with a bike lane or good shoulder we ended the day in Milton, Florida and had supper at a Texas Roadhouse. As a special treat, Phil walked to the store and brought back 3 pints of ice cream for all to share!
Roger has calculated that we have just under 500 miles left in our adventure. The STCR crew knows there are much more important things going on in the world, but none the less, we encourage all of you to not be afraid to step outside the box and live your own adventure while you can. Roger has another cause going on at the same time. He is raising funds for Mary’s Meals and we want you to know more about it.
