We are back in the Lone Star State because we missed our son and Whataburger....
Problem with the Gulf is skinny water
rigs, and mucho big ship traffic. Either people go straight across, or do the ditch. I haven't read anything about cruisers doing day hops along the coast. Maybe they do, but don't post about it. We chose the ditch, and enjoyed it. Nice anchorages
along the way. I did look at offshore
hops, but they just never made sense to me. It's nothing like doing hops on the west and east coasts of Florida
How ever you get there, enjoy Mississippi
at Dauphin Island and Ship Island. Never anchored or took a slip on Mobile Bay.
