Dang who woulda ever guessed that Alabammy has an Ocean? I was thinking that place mostly cotton fields and trailer houses. Guess I shoulda stayed awake mo often in 5th Grade Geography. Great pics. Looks like a good time was had by all. Texas got an Ocean too ya know? It mostly tar balls and jelly fish.

The weather looked good. I was wondering if that storm screwed you up. My week at Bethany Beach, Del saw perfect weather.
I see you took you boat along too.

JB,

How far were you from the FloraBama, one of the greatest bars I've ever been to. The last time I was there, they had a huge clear plastic tarp for a roof, they were tired of fixing it every time it got blown off by a hurricane.

Gulf Shores/Orange Beach is a beautiful place, we are going back next Easter. Looks like you had a great time.

Windward Pointe & Pelican Point have the same floor plans. We stayed at both before. I haggled with the realitor & got 1/2 price rate at the last minute Total cost with tax & all fees was $815 for a week

You need to be at the FloraBama when they have the famous Mullet Toss Contest. It happens every summer. It is a wild time had by all.

Great pics JB. The one of the sand dunes almost looked like it was snow, not sand.

Hey wait, wasn't that little girl a newborn just a couple of weeks ago?

Family outings are one of the best possible uses of our time.
