Gulf Shores Alabama

Trying to do some catch up here while I still have excellent internet accessibility. As many of you know, traveling on the road sometimes has it's challenges. DirecTV comes to mind as does phone coverages. I have Verizon and Debi has AT&T. Both tout how they have the most coverage nationwide...well, I'm here to tell you that's not always the case. Usually one of us has decent service but rare is the case we both do. We depend on cell coverage for our wifi service and it's not always available. Anyway, we are at another RV Resort that has excellent wifi so I'm trying to bring my posts up to date. It's 2am and I have to be up in four hours to take Jasmine to the vet's office by seven. Tomorrow is another insulin check day. Hopefully it'll be her last for awhile as I believe we finally have her dosage correct. 

We will be leaving Alabama soon but while we were there we met up with our friends, Brian and Bill. We decided to make it a day of racing, so off we went to the Track in Gulf Shores.

What better way to quench your thirst for speed but to go about 30 laps in go carts!

The Track has a tri level wooden track with twists, turns, ups, downs and lots of bumps. We had a ball.

All the excitement of racing made us really hungry, so we headed into Orange Beach for lunch at the Gulf restaurant. This is their outdoor seating.

For those not familiar with this area, The Gulf restaurant is rated #9 out of 107 restaurants in Gulf Shores. They offer inside seating but the real draw here, other than the food of course, is the ambiance of sitting right next to the sea wall for lunch. 

The food was delicious!

While eating, you can watch dolphin, sea gulls, pelicans and an occasional heron. Watching the boats come in and out of the harbor was also fascinating.

Anytime you have outdoor eating, you're bound to have a visitor looking for a hand out. This guy wasn't shy. He hung around for a few pictures before he realized we weren't going to give up any part of our delicious eats!

He wasn't too happy that we weren't going to feed him so he squawked about the loudest of any bird I've heard and took off to find easier pickings.

Notice the beautiful weather!

Our next stop will be New Orleans, Louisiana.Yes, we were there in March, but there were many things we missed so we wanted to return for more adventures, so we're headed back to The Big Easy.
