Our cruise was over … but it wasn’t time to go home just yet. After we were shuttled back to our car Sunday morning, we took off for Orange Beach, AL where my dad spends a couple of months every winter.
While we were in Orange Beach, we visited Johnson Beach, part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore and one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve ever seen. These dunes were at least 10 feet tall.
We checked out the new ballpark in Pensacola, built for the Blue Wahoos, the AA affiliate for the Cincinnati Reds.
We also ate lots of seafood.
And we saw plenty of beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the balcony of my dad’s condo.
After 15 days on the road, we headed back home early Wednesday morning. I have to admit that I was ready to get back home … to my “nest”, to my routine, and especially to my DD and grands, even if I wasn’t ready to get back to cold weather.
