Biloxi, MS to Dauphin Island, AL

Mileage: 75

I left Biloxi after gorging myself on a continental breakfast (got to try and get my money's worth!!) and made good time into Alabama. I was making great time into AL with no headwind for about 30 miles when I realized I had made a wrong turn! Son of a... So I had to double back down to get to Dauphin Island where I had intended on taking a ferry across the bay there to Ft. Morgan and up the coast to a state park. However, due to my stellar navigational skills, i got there late and missed the last ferry, so i had to stay on the island (which is beautiful, by the way). They had a camp ground, which was great, but it cost 21 bucks a night?!?! It was a super nice camp ground but still. Oh well, chalk another one up to experience. Today I am making my way up the Alabama gulf coast, which is a surprisingly cool place. It is a pretty happening string of beach towns that remind me of Pacific Beach, back in good old SD. I will be in FL in a few minutes, and i have to keep this one short with no pics as my old friend the headwind is back and i am struggling for miles. I want to hi Nevarre Beach state park before it gets dark.
