We spend a cool afternoon here. It was only about 75 degrees out, but it was so nice to relax on the beach and watch the boats go by. There were a number of birds feeding in the water near by.. interesting to watch.

We visited Dauphin Island more or less by chance and drove around until we reached the beach area. This is really a very unusualk landscape with sand dunes and little vegetation, summer houses built chaotically in the area and nothing much else. The beaches are...More

We had a family reunion last 2 weeks of June at 4 houses along Bienville with about 50 or so folks and no one had a problem. Ages were 3 to 85.
