Southern Tour: A Hawley Roadtrip {Part 3}

To catch up, click here for Part 1 and Part 2.
The first couple days of our trip we visited Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Mobile, Alabama.
When we went to Baton Rouge it was Memorial Day weekend.  There was no body around!  It felt like a ghost town.  This was kind of a bummer because many restaurants were closed, but the good part was that there wasn’t any traffic or waiting in lines so we could explore the city.

One of our first places we visited for BBQ (which is a must on a road trip with the Mr), was The Brick Pit.  This restaurant was featured on Man vs Food and it was good…but it wasn’t my favorite from the trip.  My favorite was in a different state, so stay tuned ;-)DSC_0119DSC_0138After Baton Rouge, we were off to Alabama :-)DSC_0129Some things just don’t change…even in a hotel.  Poor Mr Turtle LOL DSC_0146Downtown Mobile was such a cute city filled with Southern CharmDSC_0156DSC_0184DSC_0162During the day, the Mr and I gorged on BBQ, but in the evenings, we feasted on scrumptious seafood.DSC_0174DSC_0176Crab bisque and seafood au gratin.DSC_0178DSC_0180
After Alabama we went to Florida, and it was Rooney’s first trip to the beach… stay tuned for Part 4!!!
Have you ever been to Baton Rouge or Mobile? What did you think?

Looks like a lot of fun, still! The picture of Phil with the fish above him is a great picture!

I forgot to bring my lunch to work today (after 14 months of doing it every work day), so those food pictures are making my HUNGRY!

Of course, the other photos are fun too! Although I'm sure a desolate Baton Rouge was kind of eerie!

I have never been to either of those places - it looks like you had a great time! And I can't believe you travel with your pups! I mean, it's you and you are the best puppy momma so I'm not surprised, but how do they do in the car/hotel/traveling?!
