Gulf Shores and FairhopeToday was to be our day at the beach, however a chilly breeze kept the temperature from getting into the comfort zone for us, so we decided to take a drive to Fairhope this morning, and see about the beach this afternoon. Fairhope located on the east side of Mobile Bay, is a charming, eclectic, and artistic town with many beautiful houses and boutique shops. Joan and I would liken Fairhope to Ashland, Oregon or Carmel, California.
I continue to be amazed at what a traveler can discover about each new place. Not an earth shaking thing every time, but interesting none the less.
The state park we are staying in this week is situated on 6,150 acres, and includes two lakes and two miles of sugar white sandy coastline.
We scored an RV space right along the water.
The park system has a very nice dock on the lake where you can rent space for your boat, or rent one of their canoes.
The surf feels warm and the waters are more blue than we've seen so far.
Jeff and Joan
