We were there for seven days and ~every evening~ presented a unique, breathtaking sunset......

Thoughts from another Dauphin Island lover, this sums up the total experience of the island:

We see the sand and hear the rumble of the waves and feel the rush of the ocean breeze across our faces and we realize that the earth, the stars, that life itself transcends our brief time here. That's what Dauphin Island brings to us. It is our connection to true reality. It is the whisper of God on the breeze telling us that these are here for us to enjoy. That our troubles will melt away with time and that as surely as the tide rises and the winds blow, the island will greet another day, and if we're fortunate, so too shall we.

We stayed at Estes House on Taos Court in '03. Due to the devastation from Hurricane Ivan on the west end of the island, our accomodations this year will be at Shore Thing, on President Jefferson....
