Gulf Shores State Park

Day 14 - Tuesday: With a short 3 hour run to Gulf Shores State Park we did not have to leave until
A cemetery on the bike path
about 11 a.m. This gave me a chance to jump on the big and ride the rails to trails that runs through the park. Not my favorite type of riding, but better than not at all. I rode into the town of Mandeville and stopped at the local cemetery.  Kind of strange to see everything above ground.  Headed back and then started the routine of getting ready to move to the next campground.

Gulf Shore State Park campground is big, really big! Although you can reserve a site, you cannot reserve the exact site until you get there. If at all possible you do not want to be on the main road leading

through the campground since there is a lot of traffic. We where in site #475 which backs up to an open area with natural vegetation and some left over burned trees.  We setup quickly, got our bathing suites on and drove over to the beach.  The state park has an awesome section of the beach with sugar white sand and the water was much cleaner and cooler than Galveston.  We played in the small surf for a couple of hours and headed back to find a place for dinner.  We ended up at Cottons Restaurant which had good reviews and a pretty long wait, but it was worth it. I had the Steak & Crab Legs and everyone else was real happy with their dinner as well.  On the drive over we decided to cut our trip a little short skipping a stop at Red Bay, Al and a tour of the Tiffin RV plants, along with a day in Nashville. Our son Chase was pretty much over the whole RV living and camping lifestyle and our daughter Kaileigh had moved back home while we where a way.  So we figured we would need the weekend to get everything squared away before returning to work on Monday.
