WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME IN ORANGE BEACH AND YES, I DO NOT KNOW WHY IT IS CALLED ORANGE BEACH WHEN THE SAND IS THE COLOR OF SUGAR... AND YES, WHITE SAND.  IT IS NOT REALLY, EVEN, THE COLOR OF ORANGE WHEN THE SAND IS WET.  ANY HOW, ORANGE BEACH, AS WELL AS, GULF SHORES HAS BEAUTIFUL BEACHES. WE SEE BEAUTIFUL WHITE SEAGULLS, TOO.  WE MAINLY SEE GRAY PELICANS AND CRANES. ALSO, WE SEE THE CUTEST SAND PIPERS RUNNING ALL OVER THE BEACH, WHILE THERE.  WHAT A TIME WE HAD!   RIGHT BEFORE WE GOT INTO THE TOWN OF FOLEY, ALABAMA WE SAW THAT A STORM WAS BREWING. THEN, WITHIN A MATTER OF TIME IT BEGAN TO RAIN AND THEN HAIL...I MEAN MARBLE SIZED.  WE PULLED OFF THE HIGHWAY INTO SOME TREES.  SEVERAL CARS DID THE SAME.  THE STORM ONLY LASTED A LITTLE WHILE.  THEN WE PRECEEDED ON. AND WELITTLE SWEETHEART WHO IS NOW THREE, SOON TO BE FOUR, WAS A SWEETHEART AS USUAL.  HOW COULD YOU NOT ENJOY A SWEET LITTLE ONE LIKE THIS.  I CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW GOOD THE FOOD WAS THIS TIME AROUND.  WELL, AS FOR ME, EVERY PLACE WE ATE AT...  MY MEAL WAS EXCELLENT.  I ATE LIKE A QUEEN.  THE ONLY TIME WE ATE IN WAS WHEN HUBBY FIXED BREAKFAST WITH ALL THE FIXIN'S...  HIS FAMOUS BISCUITS AND GRAVY;.ALONG WITH EGGS. BACON. AND OUR  FAVORITE JELLIES.  HE ALWAYS FIXES ENOUGH FOR AN ARMY.  NO CARDS, THIS TIME AROUND BUT WE DID DO ANOTHER FAVORITE THING WE LIKE TO DO AND THAT IS HUNTING THE SAND CRABS AT NIGHT.  LITTLE BIT WAS NOT EVEN AFRAID OF THEM THIS TIME AROUND.  SHE IS QUITE THE BEACH BABE.  SHE, EVEN, RODE THE WAVES WITH DADDY AND MOMMIE.  WE, ALSO, DROVE INTO PENSACOLA AND ATE AT BONE FISH.  SOOOO... GOOD!  ALSO, WE TOOK THE FERRY AT FORT MORGAN TO DOLPHIN ISLAND.  I BELIEVE THIS WAS ONE OF THE NEATEST THINGS WE DID, WHILE THERE.  WE, ALSO, WENT WITH THE KIDS TO... THE KIDS AMUSEMENT PARK  IN GULF SHORES.  ALSO, WE, AGAIN. TOOK WHAT IS NOW BECOMING A FAMILY TRADITION...TAKING A DOLPHIN CRUISE. THIS TIME IT WAS THE "SUNSET CRUISE" IN ORANGE BEACH, AS USUAL, AT BEAR POINT MARINA ,  WE, ALSO, DECIDED TO STAY TWO MORE DAYS... SO WE WOUND UP STAYING AT THE SLEEP IN ON THE BEACH.  WE DID MAKE MEMORIES!!  FATHER, THANK YOU FOR ORANGE BEACH!
