We arrived at Shady Acres in Mobile Alabama around 3:45pm yesterday. We gained an hour by entering into the central time zone. One of those moments in life where you can actually 'relive' an hour of your life. Unfortunately, was not much we could do different as we were just 'driving down the road' on I 10. So far the trip has been uneventful and that is just the way we like it!
Shady Acres is a nice little RV park and it is close to all the action in Mobile. It is certainly not a fancy park, but the folks here go out of their way to make you feel welcome and answer your questions. The sites are somewhat narrow.....I think we might just be able to get our awning out, but that is it. We have a back in site on gravel with plenty of length for our fifth wheel and truck. Their cable and internet are super and included in your $20 per night with Good Sam (regular $22 without discount). They do have a laundry room and bath area. We would definitely come back here again. We plan on spending at least two maybe three nights here to take in some of the Mobile Alabama sights.
Last night we went out to eat at the 'Original Oyster Bar'. It was nice, but the food was a little disappointing. It is kinda on the same level as a Red Lobster and we just felt it could have been a bit better. Today we are heading to the USS Alabama. You can take a tour of it and a submarine. From there we will probably do a little exploring to see what else we might want to check out.
One last note.......DAD.....I'm afraid the dreaded "cold from Hell" has found where I live. I came down with it yesterday....so far it is not so bad and I'm hoping I fair better than you and Uncle Jim did with it. I know it will have to 'knock me down' to get me down as there is too much I want to see and do right now to give in to it!
