Meaher State Park, Spanish Fort, AL (Nov. 1st - 3rd), 2011
A-board USS Alabama
Our First Cotton-Field
As we adventured though the back-roads of Alabama we ended up at Meaher State Park just east of Mobile, AL. It was a very nice park with full hook-ups on Mobile Bay with some great sunset views. Highlights of our stay included a nice Bass Pro Outdoor World Store, a nighttime ferry ride from Fort Morgan to Dauphin Island just to make a driving loop tour short, seen our first cotton-field in season, ending with a tour of the Battleship USS Alabama located in Mobile (commissioned August, 1942) and the Submarine USS Drum (SS-228) (commissioned November, 1941). Both were located in the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park and is dedicated to honor all the Alabama Veterans who have participated in all conflicts of the U.S. Armed Services. There was also an Aircraft Pavilion with some older and newer aircrafts to see and learn about as well. A very interesting and worth-while tour to be walking throughout the battleship, through the submarine, and the Memorial Park. What a nice way to end our stay there in Alabama.
