Wednesday, October 19 – We are back into the Central Time Zone, our favorite time zone. We're here at the Gulf Shores Elks Lodge in Foley, AL. We stayed here before and find it a great place to enjoy the beach, and it's close to all the big box stores if you need to do some shopping. It has about thirty sites with gravel sites and roads.
You have a big grassy area outside your door to enjoy. Luckily they aren't very busy giving us plenty of room.
The sites are set-up with two RV's sharing the utilities pedestal parking front to back. So if you had a neighbor, you would be parked quite close.
It was a rainy drive from Augusta, GA. The forecast calls for clearing with warmer temperatures by Friday. The rainy & cool weather gave us a chance to investigate Google Reader for checking our daily blogs. We've read about others using it but just haven't had an opportunity to give it a try. We're sold on it! You list the blogs you read, and it notifies you when a new posting has been made. That eliminates checking all your blogs to see if someone has made a new posting. Now what are we going to do with all this time we save......hmmmm?
Across the street from the Elks Lodge is the Tangier Outlet Mall. So with a cool day on Thursday, we decided to do a little shopping. We mostly walked along the shops enjoying the sunny but cool day, but did find a few items we couldn't live without and a few early Christmas shopping ideas.
Friday, October 21 – With the sun shinning and the temperatures hovering around eighty degrees, we decided to go to the beach today.
It's very comfortable this time of year on the beach. The crowds were gone, it wasn't excessively hot, but the water is COLD.
No swimming, that's for sure! We enjoyed ourselves and soaked up some sun.
I should mention that there is no lingering evidence of last years oil spill. The beautiful white sand is definitely back.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll back real soon. Have a great day!
