Dec 18, 2017 - Here and There

The first couple of days were sunny and a bit warmer. So I put on a pot of beans in the crockpot and we took a drive to Fairhope on Mobile Bay. It is a pretty little touristy town on the water across from Mobile, Alabama. There was definite evidence of hurricane damage here with some washed out areas and others being rehabbed. We took advantage of the sunshine to walk the beach for a bit. I wanted to get some pictures and had not had much opportunity previously with the rain. I do not necessarily like swimming in the ocean but can walk the...

Dec 12, 2017 - Alabama

We had some time to spare before we needed to be in Austin so we scheduled at stay at an RV park in Robertsdale, Alabama. It was farther away than we like to drive in a day, so we stayed the night in a Walmart parking lot about half the way there. This one was very small, so we went in to ask permission, which we did receive. It was early in the afternoon when we stopped so we put out the awning and our chairs and celebrated 5 o'clock somewhere as we watched the traffic go by. The next day we completed our journey, taking the scenic route...

Apr 15, 2014 - Robertsdale, AL April

We got an early start out of Breaux Bridge and as hoped, the weather was gorgeous for the entire trip. Drove across the Atchafalaya Swamp, second only to the Everglades in size, between Breaux Bridge and Baton Rouge. The bridge across the swamp is 26 miles long and believe me, you do not want to be on it when someone has had an accident. We stopped in Moss Point, MS for fuel, though I still had plenty, however, I'm hoping to make it from Moss Point to Woodbine, GA before I refuel, as Florida fuel prices are higher than Georgia's. We...

Feb 15, 2014 - Robertsdale, AL

2/15 A short trip today so we pull out Marianna FL around 1100 heading west. It is amazing how diffrent the country is than in Southern FL, a lot more pine and rolling hills, more like I am used to. We enter AL about 1445. We go half way between Mobile AL and Penscola FL, the Hilltop RV park in Robertsdale AL plan is to be here about a week. They have Mardi Gras parades on the news locally, I really did not realise it is a several week event down this way. They make sure you know Mardi Gras did not start in this area in New Orleans but in...

Jan 29, 2014 - Leon is a 4 letter word!

This has been a roller coaster below average temperature winter in Lower Alabama! But, nothing like what my home state of Tennessee(Fayetteville & Murfreesboro) are/have been experiencing. One of my retirement goals was to never wear anything heavier than a jacket! WOW, that didn't last long. Yesterday, Jan 28th, Winter Storm Leon paid Azalea Acres and the deep South(Dixie) a visit. Not just an overnighter, but a freeze your tail off 3 nighter!!! Started with rain, then sleet and finally the S-word. I though I was still in Middle...

Nov 25, 2013 - Wintering in Alabama

My first RV Winter will be @ Azalea Acres RV Park near Robertsdale(North of Gulf Shores) Alabama until end of February. This place was perfect for me. Large level sites(66 which is small), all adult(no kids, except overnight), 12 acres of woods with trails, located on a dead end road, last but not least the price. I am here to stay warm and keep myself in hiking/exploring shape. I spent Thanksgiving with 50 other RVers who are here for the winter too. Azalea Acres furnished Turkey/Dressing and we all brought the trimmings(pot luck), mine...

2014 RV Adventure

Apr 20, 2012 - Wilderness Rv Resort

Well with that late start we didn't arrive here until 4:30PM. Much later then we like but the weather was nice so Elizabeth got out her chair and set outside in the sun. Rob had to wash the Love Bugs off the windshield and front of the coach. We will be glad to not see them any more.

Mar 4, 2012 - On to Mobile and Pensacola

Friday we made the move from Biloxi to Robertsdale AL. In Robertsdale we stayed at the Wilderness RV Park which is a C2C affiliate. Robertsdale is between Mobile and Pensacola. The RV Park is in a rural area in a pine tree forest with ponds and a lot of open grass areas. Saturday we made the trip to Pensacola to pick up a few items at Wal-Mart and to see the city. The weather turned to rain with some thunder and as we were driving the rain increased and we decided to just return to the coach. Sunday we decided to go to the Bon Secour NWR...

Nov 4, 2011 - California or Bust!

We headed west today along I10 which goes all the way to California. Something must have been going on in the Jacksonville area because the eastbound lanes was crawling with police speed traps. Even more unusual there were 2 places where Customs & Border Patrol were set up. I took a short break outside of Tallahassee for lunch and decided to take US90 which parallels I10. I realized as I entered Quincy, FL that I had been there before. Last winter on the Great Escape Tour I stopped to see The Gulf Oak Service Station. The site was a Gulf...

2011 Triangle Tour

Oct 25, 2010 - Robertsdale, Alabama

We decided to stay in Robertsdale, Alabama instead of staying on the Florida side. We're close enough to see some sights from Biloxi, Mississippi to Pensacola, Florida. We've had some decent weather, but not much to take pictures of at this time of year. The Gulf is like a ghost town, nothing much happening, out of season, between disasters, but beautiful. It turns out that Robertsdale is a bit too far off the beaten path, and although rural Alabama is a special and beautiful place, there wasn't much picture-taking to do. We stayed at...
