Mobile Bay

The Dauphin Island ferry wasn't running, so I had to drive the long way around through Mobile, but that gave me a chance to check out the beaches inside the bay. Scott Douglass' paper "The Tide Doesn't Go Out Anymore" was based on seawalls in Mobile Bay and I was glad to get a chance to see an example or two. By Puget Sound standards, the tide is insignificant, but many of the environmental issues are the same (though some aren''t).
