Dauphin Island Fort Gaines

Fort Gaines was an amazing adventure. 
Here's the link to their site with hours of operation and all that jazz.
It is so neatly maintained and very welcoming at the end of Dauphin Island. 
There is even a true life blacksmith that is incredibly talented. 
The kids and I watched him create magic with hot metal into beautiful pieces of art.
We even took home a piece for a birthday gift. It was a key chain of an elaborately detailed fish. 

My daughter being silly. Could you even imagine if bathrooms were really like this!?!
A sign the Blacksmith had leaned as art against his wall.
This is nail the blacksmith created. It has a smiley face on the end.
Here's a  video we took of the Blacksmith working his magic.
We  had a great visit spending about 2 hours here.
 I encourage a visit if you're visiting Dauphin Island!
