I looked at a couple places to live today. I've settled on a 3 bedroom 2 bath house with a trail right out of the back yard. The trail goes through the woods to the BEACH!!!!
Backyard trail through bird sanctuary directly to the BEACH!
I looked at a few other places and they were too small or didn't allow dogs. There was one place that was 4 bedrooms, had a pool in the back yard and a fenced in yard, but they wouldn't do a shorter term lease. Moose would have loved the pool, but he'll have to settle with the docks about a half mile from the house. The way he runs and jumps over waves when he fetches a toy in the water makes me think he'll love jumping off the docks into the water.
Where Moose will get to perfect his dock diving!
This is how Lady sleeps all day.
Moose will also get to play with Lady. She needs a little exercise. Or maybe a lot of exercise. Springer will get to chase geckos. I didn't realize there were geckos on Dauphin Island, but there are...just one more similarity to Hawaii.
Dauphin Island geckos!
That is the only hill, the peak is about 100 feet above sea level.
Everything else is FLAT!
I'm actually looking forward to training again too. I love running on the island. It's flat and there aren't a lot of routes, but just like in Hawaii there are parks with bathrooms and water fountains sprinkled around the island. I mapped out bike ride from my door. Zero stoplights, one stop sign, two turns, at least fifty miles.
I could probably ride a lot longer distance and still not see a stoplight,
but 50 miles is good enough for me right now!
Tomorrow I'll get a good taste of island life. It's a crawfish boil sponsored by Island Mystics Mardis Gras Krewe. A little known Mardi Gras fact....Mardis Gras started in Mobile.
