Monday, February 11, 2013 (Day 7) – Mobile, AL

Rained here off and on all day.  Drove around Mobile today.  They have some beautiful old homes here and some beautiful tree lined avenues.

I did attend a Mardi Gras parade here today in the rain.  Mobile quotes that they started the Mardi Gras parade tradition.  The parade I watched today had mostly children on all the floats.  I forgot to take my camera to the parade so no photos today.

One thing that is unique here…in addition to the beads and other misc things they throw…they also throw moonpies…lots of moonpies.

There are five more parades scheduled for tomorrow.  Weather is calling for rain for most of the day tomorrow.
