Where are we today ?Another awesome sunny day here in Alabama, fresh air and a walkabout the resort, just lovin this weather for sure. Lots of nice cabins to rent, the large clubhouse, activities, pool, hot tub its all here if you want, even a restaurant open on the weekends.
Now today we are going meet up with fellow bloggers and fulltime rver's at Lambert's Cafe in Foley Alabama about halfway between our sites. Now I have followed their blog for more than a year maybe two, can't quite remember how long (but thats just an age thing I think). Their blog is one I follow called "Where's Eldo?" and kind of caught my eye. So thought maybe would try and figure out if I could find Eldo. I started following them here and there a few places that sparked my interest Florida Keys, Maine, Michigan, Indiana then to the Gulf Shores of Alabama. A few weeks ago got an email from Sparky regarding one of my comments and just knew we had them pegged. So a few emails back and forth we figured we could get together and meet.
Kind of nice to actually meet people face to face that you have been reading about for a while and talk to in person. Sparky picked the place for lunch, perfect, a fun place to visit with lots of great food at reasonable prices. This is the home of the
thrown throwed rolls (sorry Sparky), they have a unique practice here throwing hot rolls fresh from oven across the room to those who raise their hand. Now this makes for some fun interaction with the staff and the delicious rolls.
I kinda screwed up the day yesterday, but finally got it straight. Today, friday 12:30pm we are going to meet. I made a note, sent Suzie an email, sent Sparky an email, now I should have it right. Have to get all cleaned up so an almost clean shirt and shorts and then one of my newer hats and vest just so that I would not blend it with the crowds of people here. Nope did not miss me, they blew the horn driving by the parking lot 'bout 1/4 mile away. Suzie does make me take my vest and hat off at night.....

To add to your meal they have pass-arounds, fried potatoes and onions, macaroni and tomatoes, black eyed peas, fried ocra, that were constantly coming around the room with the friendly staff carrying hug bowls.

After here stopped at the Office Depot across the road , picked up some more ink cartridges for our printer. Then to the UPS store up the road to have our Brake Buddy packed up and shipped to the factory in Kansas for some adjustments and repair.

But its time for a nice Happy hour with our friends Emile and Monique, enjoying the rest of the mild weather until it got dark and time for them to make supper. Needless to say no supper for us tonight.
Glad you could drop in for a visit, share our get-together and meeting another wonderful couple of fulltime rver's and fellow bloggers. You can check them out by clicking here
