Get Outside – Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

The Little Zoo that Could! On our recent trip to Orange Beach we decided to visit the zoo. We hadn’t been before, so off to the zoo we went with face masks on and camera in hand. We had to wear our face masks in any of the closed areas, but not while walking around…

Go Where the Road Takes You!

I had heard about a new consignment store opening in Oneonta, AL. Friends had been posting on Facebook about the shirts they have in their booth. So we went opening weekend to check it out. We went on Sunday afternoon and shopped at the store. We found that most things in the small town are…

Discovering the Pinta and Nina

Tiptoeing thru the Tulips

Over the years I have passed the white fence that lines this property many many times on the way to visit family. So I guess in some ways it’s a part of my childhood.   This fence now surrounds American Village. This was Jeff’s first time, I went on a field trip with Tyler when…
