Russian Sea Rescue Pod at The Oyster House

A Russian Lifeboat at an Oyster House

While we were traveling through Spanish Fort, AL, we stumbled across The Oyster House…and it’s roadside oddity, a Russian Sea Rescue Pod.

Outside the Original Oyster House in Spanish Fort, Alabama sits something you just don’t see everyday – a Russian lifeboat.

While the seafood restaurant is known for it’s delicious meals, we were only interested in this odd piece of decoration sitting out front. A Russian Sea Rescue Pod, origins unknown, sits prominently outside this restaurant, aglow in it’s green paint.

While we have no idea why it’s there (or the probably interesting story on how it got there), we just couldn’t pass up a chance to take a picture on our way by. While we would have liked to stop and have a meal at the restaurant, we couldn’t afford the extra expense. Besides, this odd piece of decoration whetted our appetite anyway.

Stick around for another restaurant-themed attraction in Spanish Fort before we head on out of town!
