As we set up camp in Meaher State Park, all I can think is “we have got to stay here an extra night!” First of all, they have sewer hookups which is almost unheard of in a state park (although you will pay a little more than State Park average price for that additional amenity). Most importantly this park is located on the bay at Mobile almost right across the street from Storm’s favorite oyster restaurant. In addition to those wonderful features, Meaher also has paved parking spots, lush, green spacious lots, a fishing pier and a birding walk. The only negative about the park is that the great location on the bay also makes for close proximity to the traffic on I-10 and Hwy 90 and that means some pretty distracting traffic noise. But as Storm always says “everything in life is a trade-off.” This beautiful setting is worth a little background noise – at least there are no trains!
In spite of being under the weather due to a cold, Storm did manage to visit a couple of his favorite eating establishments with me while we were on the bay. See our pictures below for details.
