Relaxing Weekend at the Beach

Last weekend we headed to Gulf Shores with my parents to celebrate my dad's birthday. We went down on Wednesday night and stayed until Sunday. November is such a relaxing time to go to the beach. It is so quiet and peaceful and it was such a nice getaway. While we were there, we toured Fort Morgan (which I haven't seen since I was about 10). It hasn't changed, of course, but it was more interesting this time.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous and the highs were in the 70's. It just doesn't get any better!

We also ate lots of great food. We have found a new "favorite" restaurant, Lester's. Lester's is on Canal Road and if you are ever in the area you should definitely stop in and try their smoked tuna dip and bread pudding. Both of these are to die for! :)

We also tried Papa Rocco's for the first time. We always discuss eating there and finally tried it. We had this yummy shrimp pizza! Papa Rocco's was good and we will definitely have this again.

How relaxed and close to God would you feel if you woke up to this every morning?

We had a wonderful time celebrating Dad's birthday. Now we need to find another reason to go back soon! :)
