Fairhope

It’s been raining a lot lately. We extended our stay here at the Escapees Rainbow Plantation RV Park another two days. Hopefully it will dry out by then.

The Arts & Crafts Show at nearby Fairhope, Alabama, was rained out yesterday afternoon but we heard they were open this morning so we went in early in case the rain came back later. This is a pretty good sized festival, I think there must have been 200 venders selling their crafts here today.

The food venders were setting up, getting ready for the lunch rush. We saw this later on and it was packed with people.

Fairhope is a beautiful and artsy town. We’ve been here a few times before and always enjoyed walking around the streets and looking at the architecture, the unique shops and restaurants, beautiful flowers on every corner. There is a small “French Quarter” here too with more unique shops. Love it.

The building on the left here is for sale. I think the right one contains a soap shop.

On our way back to the car we noticed this storybook house. It is a private residence, but I couldn’t help taking a picture. Wouldn’t it be fun to live here?

And next to it is another one! See Rapunzel’s braid falling from the tower? Another private residence.

    Nice to see some of the neat buildings in town since we’ve heard that it is a great ‘walking and gawking’ city.
