2009-10 Winter Tana Tour, Bon Secour River Area Alabama

Yesterday Man decided he just HAD to have some seafood for lunch.  He grabbed the touristy trap books and started reading.  He decided we were going to Captain's Galley on the Bon Secour River.  (I could not find a web page for Captain's Galley, but did find a Facebook page for them.  Man had shrimp and more shrimp, I had something with beef!  Man left the Galley very happy.

Then it was time to drive around a bit, way back on the small roads, away from the traffic.  Down by the river we found several shrimp selling outlets and docks and boats aground:

Above:  Busted up dock, have no idea if this
is damage from Ida or just old and worn out.

The Morning Star, is NOT being used.  She is aground, looks like
she has been here for a while, maybe since Ivan??

Another view of the Morning Star, you can
see from this shot, she has been aground for some time.

Man could NOT resist buying some fresh shrimp. 
And, I got the photographic proof!

All in all, we had a nice afternoon down by the Bon Secour River.

Yes this shrimp boat was grounded during a hurricane. It belonged to my uncle Robert Johnson. Him and his son Jeff shrimped for years on this boat. Your picture brought precious memories. My family enjoyed many shrimp caught on this boat.

Thank you Angela for your comment. Somehow I did not discover it for a couple of months. I am profoundly sorry for the delay. I am, however, very pleased that the photos brought back such fond memories for you and the family.
