Mobile, Alabama

I spent the day hanging out in Mobile, a city I have passed through many times on the interstate but never taken the time to investigate. It is a 300 year old port city with hints of Creole French and Spanish conquistadors emanating from its ancient buildings and narrow oak lined streets.

My over all impression of Mobile is that it is a quintessentially Southern place where time and people move very slowly (especially in July) and change has come only grudgingly. My kind of place. Y'all should check it out sometime.

Presley Chapel

Old neighborhood near downtown

Ba Ba's Cafeteria

A specialty at Ba Ba's


Church Street Grave Yard

Mobile Harbor

Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.
