Don't feed the Alligators???

So we didn't....Our intention was to  walk along Mobile Bay  in celebration of Christmas.  The sun was shining, it was warm, and just a slight breeze so we headed out today rather than save our Holiday touring for tomorrow.  What a great day.

We headed the other direction !   It is OK though because there is no direction for anyone to walk that escapes  the beauty of this area.  

I have been wanting to go back to the community of Fairhope because it is such a quaint small town.   Many of the buildings are patterned and designed after the French Quarter in New Orleans.  The historic neighborhoods are filled with small cottage style homes all decorated for Christmas.

My only regret is that Bob does not share the same enthusiasm for this type of place, although he did admit he enjoyed the day.   Hopefully you will enjoy some of the Kodak moments that I captured.

This bench was dedicated by family and friends of Sherwood and Annie Mc Broom, and was sitting in the sunshine on the Pier.  Although there were many benches along the Pier...the wording on this special one moved me ..."A Fairhope Love Story".  

We folks from the upper Midwest seldom see blooming roses on Christmas Eve. (You now know how temperate the climate is for the roses to still be blooming)

Mobile Bay is very shallow and we could see the bottom the entire time we were walking on the Pier.   It is hard to believe that Mobile Bay is so tranquil...kind of  like the little town of Fairhope AL


  1. Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures! I agree with you, the bench was unique and very touching. Merry Christmas to you and have a wonderful Christmas Day.

  2. Merry Christmas, and thanks again for sharing.
