After all the rain lately it was so nice to see the sun and the blue sky today so we went for a drive to see the area. We found ourselves in Fairhope, Alabama. This pretty little town has an historic downtown with lovely shops and restaurants lining the main street. Every street corner was beautifully planted with daffodils, and the sidewalks lined with flower filled boxes, it was so pretty. But it was too cold and windy for us to spend any time walking around, so we found a restaurant for a late lunch and then headed home.
Before we went home for the day we made a quick stop to see the Gulf State Park Pier. This is the largest pier on the Gulf of Mexico. It includes a concession area and an indoor retail area for fishing tackle and souvenirs and also has a comfort station at the midpoint. With it being so cold and windy there were not many people fishing, and the ones who were said that the fish were not biting today.
