Beach: Day 1

July 3, 2011

We left Mississippi bright and early on Monday the 20th and headed for the beach. I grew up going on vacation in Orange Beach, AL and since we are already down in Mississippi for our family reunion every year it's a good opportunity to drive down. It is my hands down favorite place to be in the summer. I'm still trying to recover from post-vacay depression. :(

 On our way!

 Our exit to Hwy 59 and the BEACH!!!

 Burris Farm Market in Loxley, AL is always my big landmark on the way down. They have an amazing produce selection, bakery and even make their own ice cream!

 We made it!!!! I can still smell the beach air! :( This is the view from our hotel room.

 We hit up the Original Oyster House in Gulf Shores for dinner the first night. That was about all we did since we got to dinner about 6:00 and there was a hour and 45 minute wait. So worth it though! There are tons of cute shops on the boardwalk around the restaurant that you can wander into while waiting for your table.

That's about it for Day 1! More to come of the rest of our week!
