Orange Beach, Alabama

Ahhh......the beach was grand.
The low volume of people and great weather made for a wonderful, "wining" combination this weekend for me and my two friends.

This is the view from my friend Ann's condo....

We would go to the beach every day but once we had enough of the sand and intense sun...we would go here.
Which is where we pretty much spent the remainder of our days.

At night we would hit the local seafood restaurants.
Saturday night we ate here which was VERY good...even though it wasn't "Louisiana food" HA!
After we ate we went to go see "Julie and Julia"
Which was an interesting movie loosely based on Julia Child and a young woman who endeavors to cook every single recipe in her cookbook within one years time.

There are some "issues" within the movie...such as the "F" bomb. So I don't recommend this movie to everyone.
I rarely go to movies not that I am against them......I just don't like being surprised during them and I don't like paying $9.00 for them either....which is what we paid to see this.
Absurd.

Once leaving Orange Beach late that Sunday afternoon, my friend Ann and I stopped at the really BIG Outlet Mall they have in Foley, AL. and I spent my money at the "Christian Bookstore"....so now I have a ton of reading to do. HA!

AS IF I HAVE TIME!

We are now at the "SIX week marker for the Wedding of Miss Priss and Mr. Joshua."
Ugh.....

That is why I took this opportunity to go with my friends on this short trip.
And I once again I concluded this thought:
"It is always SO good to get away........and it's always so good to come home!"
