An Orange a Day

An  Orange a Day

There are only 60 miles of coastline in Alabama, but oh my, what a beautiful 60 miles it is! Some of the prettiest beaches I’ve ever seen, and a lot of people say, prettiest in America.

If you've never visited the Gulf coast of Alabama, it's TIME!

We took a long weekend and went to Orange Beach to celebrate my birthday this summer. It was a gorgeous weekend with tons of sand and sun. Not to mention scenery and food!

An orange a day. Orange Beach, that is!

The weekend was over way too quickly and I really didn’t get too many pictures to share with you. But that leaves me wide open to be able to go again and get more pictures to share with you, right?

So many great places to see. And I haven’t even mentioned Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores State Park, Mobile…. HERE are some ideas to get you started.

      Good to see you again Mary! I love Virginia Beach. It was my oldest child’s first beach trip so I am kinda partial to it. 🙂
