Today from Baldwin County, Alabama

The boys and I are having what I consider a nice break from everything today in lower Alabama. We are fishing in the backwaters of Spring Branch, which is just off Arnica Bay and the intracoastal waterway near the Alabama-Florida border. I will post photos here periodically through the day. A huge "thank you" to one of the nicest guys I know for giving me, and especially my boys, this great opportunity.

This is what the above cloud looked like on radar. Our location was the red dot. The storm in the photo above is the one with the small yellow dot just on the Florida side of the Perdido River.

Lots of puffy cumulus clouds this morning. It is very warm and humid!

This is where we are.

Thanks Dew! That is a sorry camera too. I paid $60 for it three years and 10,000 pictures ago.
