The heat in Arknasas was unbearable with only watering plants about all you could achieve so we were seeing on the news where the Gulf Coast was a bargain right now and we checked the temperatures and they were in the high 80's so we took off. Down through Mississippi to the gulf coast where we saw lots of crew picking up tar balls. The water was the color of strong tea but when I asked one of the beach people they said that was it's normal color. Crossed over from Dauphin Island on the car ferry to Ft. Morgan Alabama. Good crossing with just a short wait time for the ferry. Great seafood lunch at Bahama Bob's right on the beach and business as usual here in Gulf Shores. Beaches looked clean and water was clear and people were swiming. Will be back in Arkansas after the heat wave breaks!
