We were ready to leave R Shaefer Heard Campground by a little after 10:00 this morning, headed to Alabama. We have covered a lot of ground on this trip. We've had a great time but Dean is ready to go home and would now if I would agree and if we did not have the rallies coming up that we want to attend. I do think he looks forward to seeing our RV friends again though.
We arrived at the campground a little before 1:00. We looked around the office area and could not find anyone to talk to. I had called earlier in the day and had to leave a message asking if they had a spot for two nights, requesting they give me a call. We were getting in the truck to leave and look for another place when a gentleman drove up on a 4 wheeler. We had already decided we would only stay here one night so we could spend the extra time at our next stop since it was so near the Gulf of Mexico.
This campground was probably the least nice of all we have stayed in. It looked a bit unkept but you could tell it had the potential for being quite nice. It was very sandy which isn't appealing, because you always track it in, no matter how hard you try to keep it outside. We had electric and water hookups only, which was not a problem as it was only overnight. There were a lot of trees and a nice pond. The gentleman told us it had a lot of fish in it but we didn't give it a try. There just wasn't much of a draw to come here except for the fishing and quiet or as an overnight stop, like we were utilizing it for.
We drove into Andalusia for dinner tonight at David's Catfish. What a great restaurant. The fried fish and shrimp plate we had was delicious. You couldn't see or taste any grease at all and the breading was very light. I chose to have a salad with my meal and Dean had two sides, coleslaw and a baked potato. The coleslaw was out of this world, almost as good as what Sally Robison in Oswego makes. Sally's is still the best I've ever had.

Later we stopped to get gas before heading back. The sun was peeking out from these clouds and I thought it was really a great picture.

Another thing we noticed here was all of the cotton fields around us. It must be getting close to picking time because you could see lots of that white stuff.

Tomorrow we move on to Summerdale, Alabama, near the Gulf Coast.
