I have to
start this chapter with a tribute to a wonderful person.
heading to Florida, it was to be a joyous occasion with the wedding of a lovely
young lady we first met twelve years ago.
Back then she thought we may have been axe murderers and was hesitant
when her Mum and Dad invited us to stay with them for a short period of

From the Florida panhandle, we began our jaunt along the Gulf coast, stopping for a night in Mobile, AL. Now to be honest, we hadn't really been planning on this stop originally. That arctic freeze in Florida ended up changing our route and once again, we were very grateful for the serendipity that allowed us to discover the USS Alabama memorial park.
