Catch Up

It’s been almost a month since my last post. It’s about time I got caught up here. We are still in Gulf State Park in Alabama. We like it here. Maybe we’ll see if we can stay a while longer yet. However, being in the same location means there’s not a lot of new adventures to blog about. But here goes…

We spend our time walking the trails throughout the park. The team here is busy paving many of the trails and making them great for biking. But there are still many unpaved paths yet. One of my faves is through this grove of long-leaf pines. Some of these needles are 12 inches long.

And the long fishing pier is another favorite walk. There’s always something going on.

We did fly up north to New England for a few days. Just can’t go the whole winter without seeing the family.

Flying Over Atlanta, Georgia

When we had some time to kill we stopped to visit the PEZ factory/museum in Orange, Connecticut. That was interesting. Everything you ever wanted to know about PEZ candy dispensers. Plus a viewing window into the PEZ production area.

While we were in Keene, New Hampshire, it was pretty darned cold, one morning being seven degrees below zero. And, of course the snow, and the ice, and scraping windows, and heavy coats…what were we thinking?

Yay, Winter!

After getting our family fix we flew back to good old warmer Alabama.

Saturdays we drive to Pensacola, Florida, to visit the Palafox Farmer’s Market.

And enjoyed free entertainment while there.

Back at the Pier we couldn’t resist showing off one of the frosted cookies we purchased at the market.

Early this morning we had some severe weather pass by. There were some tornadoes north of here, but they missed us. After the rain we walked the beach to see what might have washed up. There were a few Portuguese Man-O-War.

But not much of anything else washed up. Here’s a few more pictures from this morning.
