Last week, we made our annual pilgrimage to the beach. We decided to make the trip a little early this year, knowing that oil will soon make landfall. We always go to Orange Beach, Alabama so that our tourism dollars stay in our own state, and because it’s very beautiful and family friendly.
It’s so sad to realize just how much oil is spilling into the Gulf each day. Very likely, the Gulf Coast will never be the same. I can’t imagine how much time and effort will be required to clean up the mess.
So, we purposed to enjoy the beach. In a trip that may be our last for quite a long time. And it was absolutely wonderful.
This trip, my husband stayed home to work on several remodeling projects (can’t wait to share them with you!), so my cousin and I went together, both taking our 2 children. We had an absolutely amazing time together.
