What was a surprise was that the ships were trimarans and catamarans-
Also, what was surprising was the hull of the top ship. It was quite sharp and pointed and reminded me of the Stealth bomber. We saw a very large shrink wrapped ship. I would like to have seen them do that with a hair dryer!!
We had a lovely greeting in Mobile Bay. There were my favourite pelicans and dolphins. I did not know which way to point the camera. We passed two fishing boats both with a large flock of birds around them waiting for the chum.
I also took some photos of mallards (one with a tuft on his head). I wonder what causes that (we saw it in the white duck in a previous blog). I even managed to get a distant photo of a Kingfisher.
We have been "stuck" in Mobile since the weekend due to very strong winds, freezing rain, ice and a light dusting of snow. For some of the inhabitants of Mobile, this is the first time they have seen ice and snow. The temperatures have been below freezing for several days so the ice has remained on the ground as the city does not have any snow ploughs. We have been told that this is the coldest winter the South has had in twenty years.
