What to See in the Delta
According to the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program, the Mobile-Tensaw Delta is considered the best remaining delta ecosystem of its kind in the USA. It is so ecologically diverse it supports:
Its a quiet Tuesday afternoon as I sit at the Blue Gill Restaurant on the Battleship Causeway waiting for a few friends. A gator glides through the water opposite the Blue Gill’s dock, showing off for the restaurant’s guests. As the sun sets, a boxy looking boat pulls abreast of the Blue Gill, the gator submerges, leaving only his eyes visible in the twilight air. Tom Boatwright alights from the boat with his customary grin and shakes my hand vigorously. Tom is the two time winner of Bass Pro’s Total Outdoorsman competition and a recent Buckmasters champion. Tom is followed by Chris Reed, History Channels recent Top Shot winner. We are here to shoot a promo video for our new “Tom Boatwright’s Alabama Bowfishing Adventures” by Five Rivers Delta Safaris (5RDS) and Chris is happily lending his fame to this project.

The Canal Island overnight trail begins at the French’s Lake Coastal Access Kiosk, located on the Forever Wild Land Trust’s Clearwater Tract. The map shows French’s Lake is a small slough-like area on Major’s Creek, prior to the creek splitting into several channels. The first day begins with a paddle down Globe Creek which follows a generally southerly direction into Big Beaver Creek, then in a generally westerly direction upstream in Big Beaver Creek to Little Lake and ending at the floating campsite in the east side of Canal Island. Day two end at Hubbard’s Landing after paddling back down Big Beaver Creek and into Tensaw Lake.

Welcome to Bellingrath Gardens and Home! An abundance of colors, fragrances and scenic views await you. Bellingrath Gardens and Home was the creation of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Bellingrath. The Gardens first opened to the public in 1932 while a national garden club meeting was taking place in Mobile. Mr. Bellingrath placed an ad in the Mobile paper, announcing that anyone who would like to see the spring garden could do so free of charge. After an overwhelming response, the couple decided to keep the gardens open year-round, beginning in 1934.
Throughout the year, this 65 acre Garden Estate is in full bloom with camellias in the winter, azaleas in the spring, roses in the summer, chrysanthemums in autumn and Magic Christmas in Lights during the holiday season.
