We are in Gulf Shores, Alabama. A new time zone and a new year.
The trip has been great so far, it was nice to get off the interstate in Brunswick, GA and travel across GA on state roads. Much less traffic and much more scenery. Lots of pecan groves and quaint small towns. FL’s panhandle was more hilly than we had imagined, again we choose state roads for part of the trip but reverted to the interstate to finish the trip to Gulf Shores, AL.
We are staying at Gulf State Park. A very nice park with ~500 camp sites, the longest pier on the gulf, many hiking/biking trails and lakes for fishing/kayaking. We arrived yesterday and it has rained most of the time so we have mainly rested from the travels and rang in the New Year at 9pm with musical horns playing “Auld Lang Syne” (quite hours you know). Will be here until the 3rd so will have some time to explore. So far it has been a lot of driving, we are looking forward to some exploration.
For 2017 spread your wings and fly high with the freedom of a bird.
