Almost every morning, I take Daisy to our little beach on the sound. She loves to sniff and explore. Usually she finds something stinky to snag and run with or to roll her head around in. Yuck! But, she loves it and it is absolutely gorgeous. Today, I finally remembered to take some pictures.
We should be landing in DFW in about an hour to celebrate our Granddaughter’s first birthday. But, Brodie’s knee has not healed enough to bend so we can’t get on a plane. So, we’re “stuck” in paradise.
The water is beautiful shades of blue and turquoise.
Somebody is a photo hog!
She just found a dead crab. Yuck!
A view across the sound toward Gulf Breeze.
These flowers are all over the beach. They look like some kind of ground cover Clematis.
One thing we love about living in different places is discovering America’s history. Walking the dogs helps us get up close to the historic markers and really inspect the buildings and pathways.
Today’s walk took us past the birthplace of Helen Keller. Ivy Green is not open for tours on Sundays but we were able to walk around the property.
We’ve all read about Ivy Green in History class but it is surprisingly exactly what I had pictured.
We also stumbled upon the first railroad west of the Alleghenies.
So, here we are in little ole Tuscumbia, AL. When we tell people where we’re staying they say “where?”. Yep, we said the same thing before we got here.
Get out there and go to some new cities that you’ve never explored. You might be surprised at what you find.
I’m not exactly sure how many miles of sidewalks there are in the villages, but it’s a bunch. If you happened to be here when you can stand the heat, I think you could take a different path everyday for a month before you had a repeat trip. Unless you’re a marathon runner and then you’d probably finish them all in a couple of days. If that’s the case, then yay for you. I’ll catch up later.
Weather permitting, there is a lot of space for walking, dog walking, running and biking on Fripp Island in South Carolina.
