Mar 25, 2008 - Mar 18 – 20

Mar 18 – 20 At Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, AL we did some shopping but not until after dinner at the famous Lambert’s Café, Home of the Throwed Rolls. Yes, you just raise your hand and someone throws you a nice, hot, fat roll from across the room. Lots of fun. Take your camera. The day we arrived and the next were the aftereffects of the big front that swept from the Gulf to Canada, including all of New England. The surf was pounding with big rollers and was closed to surfers and swimmers. JoAnn waded. Briefly. We did a trail walk, a...

Feb 29, 2008 - Gulf Shores

We visited our friends Ellen & Tim at their condo in Orange Beach, AL. Took leisurely walks on the beach. The campground was Bay Breeze RV park. It was small and right on the bay of Mobile. It had a small beach and a dock. The water looked fairly shallow so swimming might have been ok. The area also had a Gulf Shores state park that looked pretty nice. It had some nice cabins too. We had a pretty bad storm the last night but no damage. The ocean had really high waves which I think is unusual for the Gulf of Mexico. Tomorrow we head for...

Feb 22, 2008 - Gulf Shores, AL

We spent the past couple of days on the Alabama coast. Although it rained most of the time, we still saw its beauty! It is definitely a place we would like to visit again. Although, we will need to make sure we time our trip correctly because we understand that not only is it sometimes very hot there, but humidity is in the 80% range. The Gulf Shore Beach area is beautiful!! Like OC, it is a barrier island, so it has a bay side and an ocean side. The beaches have nice fine white sand. The beach area of Gulf Shore is not commercialized at...

Jan 21, 2008 - In Gulf Shores, Alabama

Gulf Shores, Alabama by Diane For those of you that are RV'ers, will know that sometimes our perception of an area is colored by the RV park that we have chosen to stay in. So, with that in mind, we really liked this area. But that could be because of the Gulf State Park. If anyone is traveling to this area, please make a point to stay in this park. It was one of the best state parks that we have stayed in. The sites were very large, it had full hook-ups, and the views were great!!! You also couldn't beat the price. Now on to what we...

Dec 20, 2007 - Milton - Gulf Shores, Alabama

We depart Milton this morning via I-10 which takes us through Pensacola to the Alabama state line. They have a large welcome center, complete with the coveted 'Welcome' sign, where we can get information about what's what in Alabama.

These are all further north of where we are going to be traveling. The largest city we will see is Mobile. Mobile was the first city in Alabama,...

Nov 1, 2007 - Gulf Shores, AL

Nov. 1, 2007 We make our return visit to the Gulf Breeze RV Resort. Our friends, Art & Shirley manage to pull some strings so we can get our former site #77, which is next to theirs. It is good to be back here. We see many familiar faces and in short order we feel like we're at home. (Walt & Lois; Tom & Nancy; George; Corn; Jack, et al.) Our son, Jake, is planning to meet us here and stay for a couple of weeks before he continues on to his next duty assignment in Alaska. Also, our good friends, Ken & Geri, whom we met last Aug. in VT. plan...

Oct 22, 2007 - Navarre, FL to Gulf Shores, AL

After a round of heavy rain and thunderstorms, we escaped from Florida to the safety of Alabama. The weather didn't improve much though, with more rain and nearby thunderstorms and a tornado warning in Mobile, about 50 miles to the west. We decided to go further west tomorrow in the hopes of finding better weather in Mississippi and Louisiana. Joyce is very afraid of the bad weather and, if things don't improve, we'll head to California earlier than planned. We're in Gulf Breeze RV Resort tonight and it is pretty flooded out. Its a good...

May 22, 2007 - Gulf Shores, AL

Happy Birthday Dad! I had hoped to call Dad from Mexico Beach and wish him Happy Day, but instead we landed in Gulf Shores, AL. Beautiful little town, right on the beach! Busier than Mexico Beach, but a lot going on. Carie, Steve and the girls would love this destination for a vacation. We are staying one night at Doc's RV Resort on the intercoastal and then moving to the State Park tomorrow. It is across the street from the Gulf and we can ride our bikes all over the place. It will be great!

Feb 25, 2007 - Gulf Shores, AL

Feb. 25, 2007 We arrive at Gulf Breeze RV Resort in Gulf Shores, AL. First impressions are very good. Our first site is a back-in site. We are oriented to the north and the site is wet from recent rain storms. We settle in and meet some neighbors. As we have only paid for a week and the office claims the park is full, we start to look around for another park. The region is still recovering from Hurricane Katrina. After looking around we return to Gulf Breeze and again ask about extending our stay. We are invited to check on some open sites....
