We had a lot of fun on our summer beach vacation this year. Darling daughter has been wanting to go to the beach so she got her wish. We went to Gulf Shores, Alabama. It’s our first time to be at the Alabama Beaches. It was a very long drive but we made to and back safe and sound.
We stopped in Slidell, Louisiana for a night because we wanted to visit dear husband’s high school. It was a good feeling to know where your significant schooled. He said a lot has changed in 38 years. We had dinner at Fatty’s Seafood Restaurant in Slidell. Their seafood platter and gumbo was really good that we were stuffed we almost couldn’t walk to the car. Haha!
K’s excited was to the roof. She had a lot of questions about the hotels, restaurants, and of course, the beach. Six days and five nights in Gulf Shores are enough for the three of us.
An hour after we checked in at the Comfort Inn in Gulf Shores, we headed towards the beach immediately. We got there before the Gulf storms so the waves are quite swelling those days. But we had a great time playing in the sand and riding the waves. There was only one day when it rained so hard and gusty winds blew the sands all over the place. The next two days were amazingly sunny. Wave boarding was a lot of fun. There were many people on the beach but we maintained distanced from one another. Everything was fine.
It’s finally here! Our summer beach vacation has come. Woohoo! Darling daughter is super excited about this. She wanted to have a summer vacation at the beach so we are going to the Gulf Coasts tomorrow. It is going to a long drive. Dear husband says it’s about 10-12 hours drive to Alabama.
We didn’t have a great beach vacation in the Philippines two years ago because we went early in July and it was rainy the first week we got there, which was supposed to be our beach week (sigh).
So, we thought we’re going to the beach this year! Alabama beaches here we are coming! 🙂
Last night was super fun. We went to Rockwall to see a concert with friends. Concert by the Lake Series 2020 at the Harbor in Rockwall (TX) features talented bands from all over Texas touring and performing in special events like this. Blaze of Glory Band was the featured band last night. As a rock fan, I didn’t miss this performance tribute to Bon Jovi. This is a family-friendly event so everyone can enjoy.
Darling daughter was happy that we were able to go see the concert. Our Summer Break 2020 is quite busy despite of the COVID-19 pandemic. We make sure we have a lot of fun and staying safe and healthy at the same time.
