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.

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…

BILL-EES

While we were on vacation and just across the bay from Mobile we decided to meet Tyler and Amy for dinner. Since it was a weeknight and they would have to work the next morning we decided to meet them in the Fairhope area for dinner. So again we turned to Yelp. Jeff found a…

Sunliner Diner

On our recent vacation to Orange Beach we found a newer restaurant in Gulf Shores that we had not visited before. It is about a block and a half to two blocks from the beach. It’s called Sunliner Diner. It’s a 50’s style diner and had a menu that sounded really amazing. We went there…

Flipper’s

While on vacation in Orange Beach we decided on this trip to try new to us restaurants. One of the new one’s on our list was Flipper’s. We had added it to our list on a recommendation from our niece and nephew. They had visited on their most recent vacation and said that the hushpuppies…

Picnic Beach

This is another restaurant that we tried on our recent vacation in Orange Beach. This restaurant is located in Gulf Shores about 2 blocks from the beach. This one was also recommended to us by our niece and nephew after their recent vacation. It is a really neat restaurant. There is a view of the…
