The last week has been pretty quiet. We’ve just been relaxing at home and doing real exciting things like laundry and grocery shopping. We are still at the Escapees Rainbow Plantation near Foley, Alabama. On one of the nicer days we went for a walk on the Foley Antique Rose Trail, a public walking trail through the heart of Foley, that features thousands of hardy antique roses with benches and gazebos along the way. The roses are fading this time of year. I’d love to see it when they are in full bloom.
Today we went on a little field trip. There is a car show in Pensacola, Florida, that we wanted to see and it was a beautiful day so off we went. It was held in the area of Palafox Pier on Pensacola Bay.
Finding a parking space was not a problem, then we walked to where the cars were. Food trucks, craft vendors, live music and other activities were there too.
After looking at the cars we walked around the plaza at the end of the pier and the marina. In the center of the plaza is a statue and plaques telling of the history of Spain and France involvement in settling Pensacola. Some people were fishing, some just walking or sitting on the benches that line the plaza.
