If you want to know about Mobile and Gulf Coast history, the Colonial Mobile Fort and Museum and the History Museum of Mobile are two great places to visit. They reside across the street from each other, both are handicap friendly, and they are educational in a raw and unbiased way (I'm trying to put this nicely. It's not "whitewashed" is what I mean. It's truthful, as it should be).
Enjoy if you like. I may eventually add captions to everything, but today is not that day.
|The ultimate tourist trap|
|Maybe I'll still be around when they open this time capsule|
|I went to jail. I did not pass "GO". I did not collect $200.|
|This is El Cazador. The website makes me cry,|
and I am planning a short story about it.
|Unintentional cameo by Indy500 the rolling walker (ha)|
|The History Museum has awesome murals|
|Azalea Trail Maids|
|There is an entire room of spectacular miniature houses|
|There is a section that explains slavery.|
I couldn't bring myself to take photos of everything.
|The women of WWII|
|As the city of Mobile frequently boasts,|
the first documented celebration of Carnival (Carnaval) in the U.S. happened here.
|And here is the guy responsible for that.|
I'll try not to fall behind on sharing things like this in the future.
It's almost September, and I could not be more ready for the fall.
