Mobile Bay - to the ditch(Nov 13,14,15)
01 December 2009 | Big Lagoon,
After leaving Turner Marine, we entered Mobile Bay. Much debris visible as well as the silted waters. The bonus came when dolphins became visible, in particular the ones following the shrimpers. The traffic was reasonable as was the weather. Spent the night at Ingrams Bayou. next Day turned out to be an extremely short day, 3 hours to Spanish point at the end of Big Lagoon Bay. The Beach was fabulous.The anchorage was well tucked in, and the air show including the Blue Angels entertained us into the early evening at which point a great fireworks display could be seen from the boat.The best seat in the house. The next day we left Big Lagoon Bay went the the pass and proceeded to run over a sandbar in the near middle of the marked channel.
