Blank notecard featuring a photo of "The Family" shrimp boat by Tim Reed. The photo shows 4 shrimp boats at anchor in the Bayou.
Bayou La Batre lies along the Mississippi Sound on the Gulf of Mexico in south Alabama. It's a charming community steeped in Southern history and a heritage with a distinct French impression. Known in the late 1800s and early 1900s as a resort town with medicinal spring water, Bayou La Batre is now the Seafood Capital of Alabama.
