A Little Sight Seeing Tour

Mike finally got me out of the MH, I still am not up to par, but getting stronger everyday. 

We took a trip to Fairhope a small town on the ocean.  It was a cool, cloudy, windy day, but I will not complain, back in MN they are having single digit temps and lots of snow.

We spent some time walking the beach and watching someone flying a large kite.  We pretty much had the beach to ourselves with the weather being on the cool side.

Along the pier there was a beautiful rose garden, I just had to take some pictures.  Flower are blooming everywhere.  The town is decorated for Christmas, it is very odd to us to see flowers and Christmas decorations in the same place at the same time.

Mike and I are big fans of Food Networks show, Dinners, Drive-ins, and Dives.  We checked the web site before we left to see if there were any restaurants in Fairhope that have been featured on the show, there were two and we choose The Gumbo Shack.  It was a good choice, they had the best seafood gumbo we ever had, not that we have ever had it before, but it was good.

I never got a picture posted from Thanksgiving of the family, Mike brought the with him and he did get a few pictures for me.

Don't miss going to the other DDD restaurant, Panni Pete's in Fairhope. Try the turkey with homemade mozzerallo cheese in their outdoor cafe. While in Summerdale also try out the Shrimp Basket in Foley. It's wonderful also. Bobbie and Jim
