Gulf Shores


Tom and I were recently visiting my family in Alabama and snuck away to the Gulf of Mexico for one night.  When I tell people here in Lancaster that we went to the beach in Alabama, the response is usually, "there's a beach in Alabama?"  Yes!  Quite a lovely beach if I may say so myself.   I grew up going to the Gulf every summer but since moving away, I hadn't been in, oh... ten years?  I can't believe it had been that long.  As soon as my feet hit the white sandy beach I felt right at home.  The water was warm, the skies were clear.  We waded out to the sandbar and walked down the beach collecting seashells.  There was even a rainbow when we woke up in the morning!
