Dauphin Island has been named one of the top four locations in North America for viewing spring migrations! The Sanctuary consists of 137 acres of maritime forest, marshes, and dunes, including a lake, a swamp, and a beach."
"Recently, the 3 mile trail system within the Sanctuary has been designated as a National Recreational Trail. It is located at the Eastern end of Dauphin Island, a 14 mile-long barrier island situated off the Alabama Gulf Coast."
No way we wanted that again!!
We headed back inland but again, we got a little lost.
The map wasn't always just too clear.
The girls were tired of walking.
And they were worried we'd be lost forever!
The trail came to an end.
And it looked like there was poison ivy all over!!
We quickly back tracked!
Sophia said we should pray that we wouldn't get poison ivy so we did just that.
We finally found the right path back to the car and we immediately cleaned up, drove back to the house and took showers with Dawn soap. We scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed!!
God was gracious and we were fine. The girls said they will remember this as the worst time on the island. But I liked it!! Minus the poison ivy incident!
