Blessing of the Fleet
Sunday, May 1, 2005
9:00 AM, Finish: 1:00 PM
Public Boat Ramp, Bayou La Batre, AL
Where? For those of you not sure where the public boat ramp is, meet in the parking lot just south of Hardees in Theodore. That is at the NW corner of the intersection of Hwy 90 @ Island Rd/Hamilton Blvd. Be there before 8:15 AM and I'll lead you 15 miles south to the launch site.
8-10 Miles at a leisurely 2-3 mph pace.
If you like seeing shrimp boats, you'll enjoy this trip. There will be more boat traffic than normal, but most operate at idle speeds in Bayou La Batre. I'm trying to time this trip to avoid traffic shut down because there is a land parade at 3:00 PM and a boat parade after that.
