After some Southern Baptist git-up-and-go and a church dinner that, as Arlo Guthrie put it, could not be beat, we took a spin around the immediate area including the west side of Dauphin Island that got plenty of Katrina. It's gotta be tough to file an insurance claim when not only your house is gone but your lot has been dissolved and moved to another side of the island.
We also cruised around some of the boat yards in the area. Without the facilities you might expect, they make some pretty serious gulf-going vessels.
There we lots of shrimp boats stacked up in the docks, many of them with Vietnamese names and none of them looked like they were going out anytime soon.
