Gulf Shores 2014, another day in paradise!


Landed in Gulf Shores, January 11th.  Snow chased us all the way down, but sunshine and milder temps greeted us.  Our campsite at Gulf State Park right on the inland lake, beautiful!


Moon rising and reflecting on the lake, very pretty!

 
This is on the roof....?



On our way to Biloxi with Dave and Marcia.  They took us to The Shed in Ocean Springs, MS.   Great food and character.  You could spend an hour or two in this place and not see everything.


Spent the night at casino in Biloxi.  Another great overnight trip with Dave and Marcia.


The dog pushed Bruce out of his seat looking for leftovers...


Dave and Marcia take us to all the finest places!  Great burgers and company!!



Bruce bbq'd a tri-tip for dinner one night, delicious!  The very next night, this is what the grill and table looked like.  Crazy!!!!






Gulf State Park now has zip line, so naturally, we had to try it!!  The last line is from a 90-foot tall platform.  It is a dual zip line of 1,228 feet allowing you to zip side-by-side over the lake to the finish platform in Lake Shelby.  Bruce said he could see the curvature of the earth from this tower!  I believe they told us you get to a speed of about 45 miles an hour!  It really was awesome!!
Another wonderful dinner with wonderful company, Dave, Marcia, their daughter Amy and grandson Lucas.  One of our last nights in Gulf Shores. 
We spent 2 months here this year.  Didn't have the weather we were expecting, but then again, did anybody?
