Summer Vacation: Gulf Shores (Part 1)

Finally getting our Gulf Shores pictures up! 

After we left New Orleans Saturday afternoon, we drove into Alabama, stopped at WalMart for groceries and the necessities for the week, then made it to Gulf Shores to our Condo. 

We knew we were in a high-rise across the street from the beach but we were still pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to our condo! 


We just spent the evening watching the Olympics and John decided to take shots ;)


Sunday morning we woke up and it was SO nice to have this view... The first picture is from me sitting on the couch!


We spent the whole day at the beach...



After our day at the beach, we went back up to the condo, had some adult refreshments, then got ready for dinner at LuLu's


LuLu's was definitely a tourist trap, but I really enjoyed my food. And John and I STILL talk about the Krispy Kreme bread pudding we indulged in there. Yes, you read that right. Krispy Kreme bread pudding....


Monday we planned on doing the same thing - sitting at the beach all day, but unfortunately it started raining after a couple of hours. We did enjoy some time in the sun before it started storming. We even witnessed someone having to get rescued because of the current. After it started raining we went back up to the condo and sat on the balcony just watching the rain.


We picked up dinner at the Shrimp Basket and parked ourselves on the couch with some sweet tea vodka and the olympics for the rest of the evening! 


Stay tuned for part 2! :)

Ooooh it's so pretty! My family is from Alabama, but every time we've visited it's been way inland, it never even occurred to be that there was a beach!
