I moved to Mobile in 1998 after sailing on a lake in B'ham, Al. The Eastern Shore, as it is called, is a nice place to live. The employment is bad & pay is low, but the sailing is good. Their is not as much boating as most people think there would be. East of here in Destin & Wolf Bay the water is alot clearer. Make the move you want be sorry - just older & wiser!
