Friday was mostly taken up with driving and eating great seafood as well as catching up on a bit of laundry. Yesterday, Dad had several suggestions of things we might do and we thought we’d visit some of the Mobile attractions since the beach at Gulf Shores was likely very crowded and the Battleship is not much fun when it’s really hot out, never mind that sweltering submarine! We started out at the Museum of Mobile and proceed to visit the Conde-Charlotte House (where I identified a skeiner for the guide) and then ended with the Mobile Carnival Museum. The Carnival museum was a nice contrast to Mardi Gras world as one focuses on float building and the other focuses on the costuming of the “royalty”.
