In the fall we planned our vacation for places we visited places before and a few new places. By the end of the the trip we had actually been thru 5 states!! We started our trip with breakfast in Leeds and then we hit I-20 and headed East thru Atlanta. For lunch we were in…

Next Leg of Fall Vacation

After our couple of days in Asheville, NC we left and headed towards Gatlinburg. As I said in the other post we visited some new places and some old. Well this was one of the places that we have been to before, BUT we looked for some new things to do. We found a few…

Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park

We recently had the chance to visit the Gulfarium in Destin. When our son was growing up he loved marine life so we have visited aquariums when we traveled somewhere with one. He wasn’t on this trip with us, but how could we not go and send him pictures?? We were going to watch the…

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…

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….
