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.

WOW, we will put that on our list of stops as well. GOD BLESS
You would really like it. Just down the street from the Battleship Museum.
Looks like a nice park!
It was – we liked the long pull throughs.
Made me put the Will and Trust I was working on on hold, and pull up AvWeb to see how far it is from KIGX to Mobile. Ah, home sweet stagecoach. Oysters. Sunny and Storm. Sweet!
550 nnautical. 4.:09 hrs nonstop. just out of crazybird’s range. probably have to stop in LaGrange for hot dogs at Charlie Joseph’s, a fourth generation hot dog palace specializing in cheeze n’ chili masterpieces, steamed buns.
let’s see, four ought to get me to Mobile. To a peck of oysters.
you may want me to sleep in the jeep.
We would never make you sleep in the Jeep. I wish I had posted this earlier so we could have welcomed you before we left Alabama. We have already worked our way to Texas. IF you can come up with a plan to get Crazy Bird to Galveston, we can show you a good time here! We miss you, crazybird, show girl and even Henry (though we don’t know him as well as the others). Tell Lana Hi for us – hope to see you guys soon!
