Dave blew it!! 

I knew we needed to get on 98 but took the first turn instead of going to Pensacola first.  So we went at 50 miles out of our way around the Gulf Coast, totally lost but finished up where we wanted to be in the end, except it was going to be Destin but became Fort Walton which is OK.  Did about 240 miles instead of 200 but here is lovely, right on the water and tonight as promised we had a "proper" meal.  Fish Bisque whatever that is?  Sort of soup, then fresh fish meals which were suburb, I had Grouper stuffed with prawn somethings and Lona had Amberjack which we have never heard of but she thought it was wonderful.
Along with a couple of beers and several Cab Savs it all went down very well. 
Was very careful riding back to our motel!!  we dined at Staffs and from Dave at the bar to Michael our server person it was just fine.

Left Hattiesburg about 8.30 this morning and made good progress to Mobile, stopped for a coffee at Sonic and then found our way thro' the maze to join 98 too early.  Got a good unintendeded tour of the Gulf Coast before gettin back onto 98 and where we wanted to be.

Been warm again but only 85-90 so not quite as sweltering asual.
