We left Fort Pickens Campground in Pensacola Beach, Florida, about 10 a.m. following a flood of locals who came for the holiday weekend. The line at the dump station was long.
Charles and Sandy had been telling us about this restaurant and wanted us to try it out. So we drove to Mobile, parked our rigs in a nearby Walmart parking lot and then piled into Sandy’s car and off we went.
The area and the interior of the restaurant is quirky. The walls are covered with sayings.
The establishment is 75 years old and has an extensive menu and looks like the original oyster bar. This guy shucked oysters the whole time we were there.
The food was very good and I liked that they offer grilled selections and not only fried.
After a two-hour lunch break we continued on to Davis Bayou Campground in Oceans Springs, Mississippi. It is also part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore like Fort Pickens Campground in Pensacola Beach.
We were lucky to find one of the remaining sites. We thought we wouldn’t have a problem because the locals would have already left, but seems a bunch of us Senior Pass folks are staying here and the choice of sites were meager. We aren’t side by side with Charles and Sandy but a couple hundred feet away.
We got set up and enjoyed being able to sit outside with Charles and Sandy for the early evening until the chill of night forced us inside. There were a lot of clouds so the sunset was spectacular. This photo doesn’t do it justice. We’ll be looking for a good spot for future sunsets.
Remember, all you folks out there…..you are loved.
