Fun times in Orange Beach Alabama


My Hubs and I just got back from a fun 3 days in Orange beach Alabama.  Now being from the East Coast, My Beach experiences have been Ocean City Md.  Myrtle Beach SC. St. Simon's Island and Jekyll Island Ga. plus the beaches in Florida.  We were pleasantly surprised with this beautiful beach in Alabama. Being right on the Gulf of Mexico the water is a beautiful blue and the sand is pearly white.  The Florida line was just 20 minutes up the road, so we paid Perdido Key in Florida a visit also. The weather was a balmy 80 degrees with low humidity and sunny!  Friday afternoon they were having boat races in Orange beach so we got to see it all from our balcony at our hotel.  Would we go back???? You betcha we would!  If you all have never been,,,we highly recommend it!

Ah-hh! Last break for warm water and sand for the season. Glad you and Jer were able to get away before the weather turns cold. Sounds like this was a perfect spot--not affected by oil spill?
