WHERE? Orange Beach, Alabama · find us on the map
This morning we gathered up our recently-purchased beach gear and headed for Romar Beach. We have never been on the beach this early in the year, and it was absolutely wonderful! We didn't even break a sweat, and could've just as well left the little misting fan at home.
Gulf Coast seagulls evidently realize that people mean food and stay very alert to the possibility. They're excellent beggars, and we couldn't resist tossing up several bites to watch them expertly snatch up the food in midair. I suspect these birds have sharp eyesight, and perhaps a keen sense of smell as well.
