- Activities: Walked the new pier. Visited Ft. Morgan historic site. Toured scenic Bon Secour, Magnolia Springs. Spent time at Dauphin Island beach and Sea Lab. Visited National Naval Aviation Museum and Pensacola’s old town. Stopped for ice cream–rainstorm struck while waiting under canopy. Dined at favorite local restaurants. Bought pecans at a pecan farm.
