Mobile 2

 After we got to the Hotel and checked in we went in search of someplace to eat dinner. We walked down Dauphin Street and found Wintzell's Oyster House. www.wintzellsoysterhouse.com  I have tried oyster before and this time I had them fried (STILL NOT A FAN) I had the sampler platter so I did not go hungry as a matter of fact I could not eat everything. Prince and Puppy had the fresh catch of the day which happen to be Red Snapper. Both thought the meal fish was outstanding. 
 As we were walking down Dauphin Street we came across a public park and the light was hitting the water in the fountain  just right so I snapped a photo. There were about a dozen firemen there while the homeless were being fed a nice hot meal. As you can tell on the building below, most of the structure are Old and older. The street are very narrow as was the case for the time Mobile began. The street where my Nephew and his new bride will live is harder wide enough to pass an on coming car. The city has a yesteryear Southern charm and it would take several days to explore and see all the wonderful old buildings. 

After our large meal we took a brisk walk back to the hotel . Besides the darkness was falling rapidly and the hotel was like a beacon (the large pointed building) calling us back to a nice cozy bed. 
Puppy went out with the younger crowd while fairy tales danced in our heads. 
The Kitty Justice is neither Prince or I had to be rocked to sleep .
