Savannah – Take 2

We decided to visit Savannah, GA for a second time. We watched the weather reports and the track for Tropical Storm Claudette. We had thought that it was going be moved out by the time we left on Father’s day, but that was not the case. We ended up traveling east with it. The rain…

Ellijay, GA

We recently took a trip to north Georgia. In planning the trip I found that one of the routes would take us thru Ellijay, GA. I’m not sure why or how, but I had heard about this city before. I never did figure out what I had heard about it. Oh well, we enjoyed our…

Blue Ridge, GA

To celebrate 10,228 days of marriage (if you don’t want to do the math that is 28 years) we decided to take a long weekend trip to Blue Ridge, GA. We traveled on our actual anniversary. We of course took the scenic routes all weekend. We started our trip by heading towards Atlanta and heading…

Pensacola Beach

We chose to take a quick trip to Pensacola Beach for Jeff’s birthday. This was our first time to stay on the island. We chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Resort. They have heated indoor and outdoor pools with a lazy river. When we arrived they put us on the street side of the…

Get Outside – Chattanooga Zoo

With having been social distancing and not having a vacation we decided to take a weekend trip to Chattanooga, TN. We’ve been there quite a bit since it’s just a 2 hour drive from home. So we’ve done almost everything. So we started looking for anything that we had not done and we came across…

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…

Final Flight

On November 4, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. we were able to stand on the beach at Orange Beach and see the final flight of the 6 F/A-18 A/B/C/D “Legacy” Hornets of the U. S. Navy Blue Angels. This was the final flight of these jets and the transition to the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet platform….

Elvira’s Cafe

Do you have a favorite vacation spot? Do you have a favorite restaurant at that vacation spot? When the mountains are calling, we enjoy visiting the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area. One of our recent restaurant finds is Elvira Cafe’s in Wears Valley. I say recent, but we’ve been there 3 or 4 times already….

Cosmo’s

Our last night at the beach we decided that we’d have dessert with our meal. So we looked at our list and chose Cosmo’s, another new restaurant. Cosmo’s had been added to the list because I saw in a Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Facebook group that they had a really yummy dessert called Chocolate Creation. After…

YoHo Rum & Tacos

One night while on vacation we decided to shop and have dinner at The Wharf. We visited some of the stores that were still open. After the sun went down they had a light show. The music to the show while we were shopping was Baby Shark. I recorded and sent it to my great…
