It was hazy outside the day I took this picture of the Alabama River at the foot of Church Street. The water surface was smooth, and as you can see in the bottom right, the kudzu was flourishing. Occasionally in the summer, alligators can be observed sunning along the banks, but finding them for a photo isn't too easy. The gators make their way north via the Mobile Bay and bayous, up the Mobile River and into the Alabama. Perhaps one day I will get lucky!
