6 Nov, Saturday: Still cold so I stayed inside all day. Started laundry and the stupid machine overflowed again…..been having trouble for a while and I never know when it’s gonna do it; so, Nolan worked on the washing machine today. Put a new water level control thing on it and of course we then had to clean up the mess and all the dirt behind the machine…..it always gets so nasty behind washing machines!!!!
7 Nov, Sunday: Travel day…..moved to Azalea Acres in Robertsdale, AL. Not a great park but it has full hookups and great WiFi and close to the Gulf.
Nothing was paved.
Here’s where we were parked…..sites were wide enough but we had some ants under the table.
Not bad but not the greatest either. Lots of grass for the dogs.
8 Nov, Monday: We’re only 30 miles from Gulf Shores; so, today we went for a drive to see what we could see. Bridge to get to the beaches.
Very pretty place!
And, then……we ate seafood…..very, very good. Been a long time since we’ve done that!
What a fun day!!!
9 Nov, Tuesday: Seems to be a lot of places to see around here…..I could stay here all winter but Nolan seems to think it may get too cold. Today we drove to Foley and on the way we stopped at a very good farmers market, bought bananas and pecans and tomatoes. They had lots of stuff!
Of course every night Lucy has to lay with me in my chair but it seems she likes to lay with her head hanging upside down…..every night she keeps hanging a little more off the chair…..strange dog!!!!!
10 Nov, Wednesday: Oh……today is going to be a good day! First we had made plans to meet Kevin and Arlene for lunch in Pensacola. The place Arlene wanted to go didn’t open until 4 so we ate across the street instead….very good!!!! AND, it was so good to see them and catch up…..
We drove down the island to the Fort and checked out the campgrounds. This is along the road to the campground.
Doesn’t it look like snow piled up along the road.
Didn’t take pictures of the campground, I was too busy looking to see if we might like it…..we finally decided not to stay this time but maybe some other time….it wasn’t very full and would have been easy to find a nice spot but Nolan’s not much of a beach person!
We went on down the road to the old Fort. Here’s a few pictures…..Fort has been here a long time…..very interesting!
We missed the tour times mainly because we were watching the Blue Angels practice. They were home and this coming weekend they were gonna have a 3 day show but I think we saw most of how they would be flying without fighting the crowds.
It was pretty cool!!!! Another fun day….it was beautiful weather!
11 Nov, Thursday: Rest and stay at home day.
12 Nov, Friday: We saw a Book Exchange store in Foley and Nolan doesn’t have anything to read…..he won’t buy new books. Got there and it was pretty unorganized and I don’t think he was in the mood to look so we left without a book! Oh well, we got out and drove around!
