This handsome fella hatched in 2006 on North Manitou Island in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, MI. He returned to breed in 2007 on the mainland of Sleeping Bear Dunes NL, and has returned to do so every year since. At least this year it looks like he might have decided Dauphin Island is a nice place to spend winter, along with about a dozen other Piping Plovers, most of whom are from South Dakota, but he also has company from North Dakota and Nebraska. Although just as shadow, as it were, of his summer self, he is hanging on to some of his breeding finery as of last week, as can be seen on his neck band and forehead. Thanks to Alice for supplying the summer picture.

I would like to share a wonderful email sent to us from a kind friend we had met on our trip on Dauphin Island on the final days of our journey: I find myself traveling home to Georgia from business meetings in Baton Rouge. My sister and I are transported Islanders, grew up in Austin, Sis Cindy lives on a small bit of sand (I too have a place) on Dauphin Island, Alabama and decided to stop by for a day. I went for a 5am swim in the warm waters of the Gulf, and had plans to do absolutely nothing but veg with my sister. Later that morning, I look out to see two young men in a canoe, challenging the Gulf waves. I watched as they triumphed several adventures only to be capsized the next. As I sat on my sister's deck overlooking their battles with the waves, I found myself routing for them, armchair coaching, an occasional "lookout" as a wave hit them from the side as I watched them bail before the canoe and the two of them went upside down. It was not until much later that day, I went to say hello. One day. . ...

People have asked me why I have let Nick do this bike trip, let me explain. His first trip from Dauphin Island to Grayton Beach he was 18, just graduated from high school. As a mother I was a nervous wreck but he was an adult. After much thought, prayers and soul searching I gave him my blessings. Several young men and women had just graduated from high school and enlisted in the military. Where would they be sent after basic, many were going overseas to fight for our freedom. Coming from a military family I knew this was an option, that one of my kids could have chosen this career. Would I have supported this decision? By all means 105%, in this day and age is the military career a safe career, no far from it. The chances he would have gone to Iraq or Afganenstain (sp) was real. At that point I could not just say, Nick it is dangerous, he would have gone with my support 105%, plus if he joined momma has no say so. His ride is equally as dangerous but it was his dream. I love and support all my ...

"RV trip from *** Part 2 Expecting a 3 day trip trip Dauphin Island we started packing for the trip about 8:30 this morning. By 10:30 we were packed and ready. Evelyn was to drive the Shelby and follow me and the trailer, then we had trouble cranking the Shelby. Finally it started and she pulled out of the drive. When I went back to get in my truck Sam Da Cat had stepped on the lock button and locked himself in a running truck. I keep a spare key under the edge of the bed line, but it was covered by tents, chairs, coolers and assorted camping stuff. After a scraped arm and a few choice words I got the key and off we went. About 25 miles into a 5o mile trip my truck overheated. I had a burst heater hose. We called AAA and and they said they would have someone there by 11:45, he arrived about 12:15. When the tow truck arrived the guy said "I didn't know you had a trailer too" and drove away.

Dauphin Island is truly a place like no other. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, you’ll feel the difference as soon as you step foot on the Island and take in a breath of fresh Gulf air. A historically significant location, Dauphin Island’s Historic Fort Gaines, was active in the Civil War. The fort, now retired, stands guard overlooking Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Nowadays, Dauphin Island thrives upon its’ emphasis on low-key, family oriented vacations. Forget road congestion, water parks and outlet malls – the island doesn’t even have need for a traffic light. Instead, envision bike paths, walking trails, miles of white sandy beaches and simplicity centered upon outdoor recreation and the environment. Dauphin Island is a true hidden gem of Alabama’s Gulf Coast, so come and “surround yourself!”
Dauphin Island trademarks 'sunset capital of the world'
A Habitat for the Human Soul When you need a relaxed, natural getaway, do what nature does. Discover the authentic Gulf Coast island community of Dauphin Island, with 7 miles of white sand beaches, and many eco-tourism opportunities. Soak up the sun in a comfy beach chair, and then go hiking, canoeing, kayaking, beach-combing and birding in the midst of our abundant wildlife. See why we’re home to the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail, and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium. See Bellingrath Gardens in Theodore, then the nearby communities of Coden and Bayou La Batre overflow with fishing village charm. Enjoy the freshest of fresh seafood while watching shrimp boats come and go. Just across the Mississippi Sound is Grand Bay, renowned for its Fourth of July Watermelon Festival, National Wildlife Refuge, and orchards bursting with fresh peaches and pecans.

April 23rd makes 11 yrs since my husband died. My son asked me the other day if I even missed daddy at all. I told him of course i do. I think about him all the time. Then I realized that this is the month he died. My son still has a very hard time dealing with the loss of his father. I guess bc he watched as they tried to revive him. He drown on spring break. That day changed our lives. Please be safe if you go out in the ocean to swim. The Rip tides have always been bad at Dauphin Island. That's where he was. After his death I did some investigating and found there has been numerous drownings or near drownings there. Please just be careful and have a safe spring break.

Last year an artist by the name of Steve Garst was riding around the Bayou taking pictures... He saw my dad on the dock by his boat and asked permission to take his picture which was the only person he took a picture of but my daddy doesnt even remember...He then painted this picture and brought it to the Art show on Dauphin Island this past weekend and hoped to find my daddy to give him the first Authors copy... Well he did and here is a picture of them together with the Original painting... I think that this is pretty neat!!!

At the Estuarium on Dauphin Island they told us that an octopus only lives 18 months maximum. This one was hiding in the rocks waiting for death and we couldn't see her. But she had just given birth to about a gazillion babies and it was just amazing watching them swimming in the tank. You can see them if you look close.Then they told us they would pour them into the gulf waters in a day or so. Kind of sad that they are just plankton now. On a hopeful note, maybe some will survive!
It's amazing that you can be in the largest metropolis in the western world, ride 30 minutes north on a train, and everything looks like Dauphin Island with a cliff face.

Mrs. Hicks is an amazing P.E. teacher. She cares so much for her students and is there for them all. I remember being picked on a lot one day and she comforted me and talked to me about it. Another time when we took the trip to Dauphin Island my grandparents were worried about me so they wanted her to look after me and she watched over me all those days. She is an amazing teacher and an amazing person who is there for her students. I will miss her at Sardis as she leaves for retirement and I leave for a future life. I love you Mrs. Hicks!
Beautiful weather has arrived on Dauphin Island and so have the crowds of people. I miss the solitude. I am officially ready to go home! I still have months to go before my house will be ready:(

My grandpa Marti used to make the best friend shrimp and he always made it for my sister and I when we were visiting in St Louis or when he and my grandma were taking care of us while my parents were away. It had a very light crust and we loved it.  I have only had it one other place since and when we tasted it several years ago, my mom and I both exclaimed, "Grandpa's shrimp!!!". It was at the Pelican Reef just before you cross over the bridge to Dauphin Island, Alabama. I always make it a point to go there.  We did not get there this year but brought home some fresh shrimp from the island yesterday. Called my mom today for the recipe: Soak fresh uncooked peeled shrimp in combination of beaten egg, Worcestershire sauce and lime juice then dip shrimp in a mixture of cornstarch/flour/dill weed. Fry in oil until golden brown, drain on paper towels.

Dauphin Island and Mobile Bay were mapped as early as 1519 by Alonzo Pineda. In 1699, the French explorer, Pierre Le Moyne de'Iberville named it "Massacre" because of a large pile of human skeletons he discovered. Despite the burial ground, Iberville decided to locate a colony here because of the abundant timber, reliable supply of fresh water, and a great harbor. "Massacre Island" soon became the headquarters for French colonization along the Gulf Coast. The thriving settlement consisted of a fort, a chapel, government owned warehouses, and many private homes. But the name "Massacre" seemed to ominous. In 1707, the French renamed the island in honor of the heir to the French throne: "Dauphin." During this period the island was capitol of the Louisiana Territory which equaled almost two thirds of the United States! Although the colony was able to rebuild from a pirate raid in 1711, a devastating hurricane six years later almost destroyed the fledgling settlement. Over the next century, control of Dauphin ...
You can get there either by road in Gulf Shores or Ferry from Dauphin Island in Mobile County. Come back and take the tour!
"Sand Island Light Built On Sand" Lying within the state of Alabama, Mobile Bay is an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico. The mouth is formed by the Fort Morgan peninsula on the eastern side and Dauphin Island, a barrier island on the western side. Mobile Bay is 31 miles long and 24 miles wide. It is the only entrance to the port of Mobile at its northwestern end. Roughly three miles offshore from the primary Mobile Bay entrance is a place called Sand Island. In the early 1800's it measured approximately 400 acres in size and was a distinct hazard to ships entering the mouth of the bay. The logical way, in Washington, DC, to warn shipping of a hazard was to build a lighthouse on it; even when the locals warned against building a house on sand. The first one, built in 1838, was destroyed in the Civil War. In 1873, the replacement was completed on a stone foundation as a Brownstone, conical tower rising to a height of 131 feet. It had a second order Fresnel lens. Sand Island itself faced continuous erosion, to the ...
Dauphin Island is a barrier island located three miles south of the mouth of Mobile Bay in the Gulf of Mexico. Entry to the island is made by crossing a three mile long high rise bridge which was opened in July, 1982 after the original draw bridge was destroyed by Hurricane Frederic in 1979. An automobile ferry from the eastern shore also offers an entry point on the eastern end of the island. The island is approximately 14 miles long and 1 ¾ miles wide at the widest point. The eastern six miles are inhabited while the western 8 miles are undeveloped and privately owned. It is estimated that 1300 permanent residents call Dauphin Island home. The number of residents soars during vacation and holiday times. The entire island has been designated as a bird sanctuary and thousands of visitors come to experience the annual migrations. Dauphin Island Beach Many attractions are located on the east end of the island including Fort Gaines, the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, Dauphin Island Campground, Audubon Bird Sanctu ...
Robert Charles Dafoe, 36, of Chattanooga passed away on Tuesday, December 17th 2013 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Robert was employed as an environmentalist at the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Health Department. He received a Master’s Degree in Marine Biology from Jacksonville State University in August 2010. His thesis work involved studying tardigrade (water bear) populations of Dauphin Island. Robert had many interests, one of which was exploring the countryside on his motorcycle. He was a proud member of the East Tennessee Bikers organization and he spent some of his happiest times taking long rides with fellow members. Robert was active in volunteering with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and as an annual volunteer, he participated in NOAA fisheries survey work to study variations in ocean conditions and sea life. Robert’s love and appreciation for the aquatic world will continue through his cremains becoming an eternal reef where fish, coral and other ...
Have a bid on a 2/2 Condo on Dauphin Island in Mobile Bay. Lot's of good times when I was a kid, kind of a funky New Orleans. Chasing sandpipers on a beautiful white beach, eating gumbo, fishing, crabbing (all you need is a chicken neck in a crabbpot), all for the price of a BMW. Hope I don't get bid out. This could be fun for the family, if they don't like it, I can rent it out during tourist season. I do this all the time, bid on vacation houses, but I kind of got my fingers crossed on this one. :)
