Danny and I will wait till the Autumn when the cooler days start and being out of season a lot less people.
I so enjoy taking the car ferry to Dauphin Island when we are down at the beach.
I get a lovely sea journey to the island.
It was very busy on the sea ..pleasure boats and large container ships ..could be seen ...lots of Oil Rigs merging out of the sea ..so ugly but so necessary ...the photo below shows the other car ferry going back to Fort Morgan where we came from..our boat was a little older than this ..it's basically just a platform that you drive on and off of.
Up on stilts because of the storm surges they get from hurricane's etc ...
Turquoise, pink, yellow, green, blue ..I could go on are the colors of the houses against the blue skies and the white, white sands of the Gulf of Mexico.
We leave on our long journey home ..we take the back roads ..no interstates so it takes us between 5-6 hours ..but it's a glorious drive ...so picturesque and full of interest
Some of these photo's show the island after Hurricane Katrina...it took most of the beach houses away..
My Sons were over here at the time on vacation and we had planned a few days at the beach and saw the devastation first hand ...
It was so sad to see people's Sofas, beds and personal effects hanging from cut in half homes with only the future of being demolished.
Now these beaches are filled with homes again ..I wish them good luck for the future.
A lovely time
A glorious end to my Birthday Week
I had so many gifts I have no idea how many
It was really one of the best birthdays I have ever had
Showered with love, gifts and creating wonderful memories
Whatelse can a 63 year old lady want
Thank you to all of my Family and Friends that made my Birthday so special ..I love you all
