If you visit Mobile . . .

When stuck, blog!

STUCK in Dallas. At least for the time being. Just enough time to tell you a little bit more about my trip.

I was thrilled to visit Alabama as I had never stepped foot anywhere in the state. Here’s what I learned:Myvbandb

You must stay at My Victorian Bed & Breakfast if you visit Mobile. Naomi and Jim are superb inkeepers and have thought of every little detail. It’s right downtown and on the bus route–very convenient. (Update 4/9: I almost forgot. You must have Naomi’s omelette with BBQ chicken, sprinkled with cilantro. Not being a BBQ fan, I would never have ordered it. I’m so glad she put it in front of me. I ate every bite!)

Space 301 is part of the "Center for the Living Arts." Housed in a former newspaper building, this is a terrific venue for contemporary art. I saw a show called "Outside In–Inside-Out," paying homage to contemporary outsider art. It was nice to see several works by most of the artists, some of which I could have easily found a place for in my home.

Also in Mobile: Get the Shrimp Kabobs at Bluegill’s restaurant and a Caesar Salad with, I kid you not, fried okra croutons, at Cafe 615.

While en route, try the chicken Caesar wrap at Au Bon Pain in the airport. Too much lavash bread, but delicious.

    I will remember that place! We have some relatives in Mobile Alabama. We just went to a B&B in St Augustine, Florida that is out of this world called the Cedar House 5 Star– I cannot see going to a hotel ever again ;)
