We love crabbing off of the White Ave pier, which is located just steps away, at the end of our street right on the Mobile Bay! While it is available for all to use we seem to be one of the more active users. We crab off the pier and will often sit out and enjoy a wonderful, sunny afternoon on “our” pier! FYI — the crab we catch is some of the most delicious Alabama Blue Crab we have ever tasted! We also enjoy traveling around the south Alabama area, visiting and exploring new towns and areas! Some of the towns we have enjoyed most include Foley, Old Daphne, the Gulf Shore area, Pensacola, Destin and Fort Walton Beach, FL. Each has offered great food, stores to explore and great and friendly ‘locals’!
