Where are we today ?
This morning is overcast and foggy but supposed to be nicer for the rest of the day. So we have a plan to take our new friends Rolf and Johanna down hwy 59 thru Robertsdale to the Gulf Shores and check out the beach. Well we drove along chatting and taking in the sights until we found the beach. Kinda hard to miss, just head south on 59 and if you don't stop you get stuck in the sand or in the ocean. About and hour's drive from our resort.

Now have to take the obligatory Beach shots to prove that we were here.

|this little guy was on a mission|
|Love the colors|
|then we found Rolfs Retreat, and he didn't even know.|
|miles of white sandy beaches|
Now its close to 1 pm and we are getting hungry so the plan was to head out to Lamberts Cafe along the canal road to once again experience the fun and fill our tummies at the same time. They have never been here and thought they would enjoy the atmosphere.
We were barely seated when we each caught hot roll, and were offered some apple butter and sorghum molasses to spread on them.
|apple butter or sorghum for your rolls ?|
|the ocra is yummy|
Our meals soon arrived and looking so tasty.
|for Suzie fried chicken, corn and beets|
|for Rolf bbq'd pork chop, beets, peaches and turnip greens|
|need to go ? follow the signs on the floor|
|a few nice bikes in the parking lot|

They let peanut out for a walk and he came right over and gave us a verbal reprimand for leaving him at home, talking and woofs to Johanna very vocal he was, so funny.
Thats it for another fun day and tour about the area, to the beach and then a bite to eat on the way home. Our friends are leaving in the morning heading further west, eventually meeting up with Jim and Sharon again in Texas then heading to Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Safe travels guys.
Thanks for stopping in again for a peak, keep the shiny side up!
