BEST part of my road trip

My tour guide, Valerie, was terrific: friendly and helpful, steering us smoothly and quietly through the water though we were a group of mixed kayaking abilities. She’s an ace at spotting alligators, blue herons, brown pelicans, and lotus flowers in all stages of their life cycle. The boat launch was so convenient and the timing of our tour – 5:30pm in late July – was ideal for escaping the heat. I’m coming back to Mobile to do this again; it was an amazing way to get to know the area.
