vacay, part 1

Ty & I went on vacation last week with his family to Orange Beach, Alabama. It was a wonderful week! On the way down to Alabama, Ty & I spent the night in New Orleans. Ty had never been before, so it was fun to show him the French Quarter.


We ate the best char-grilled oysters at the Acme Oyster House and had dessert at Cafe
Du Monde. Yummy!

The next morning we headed toward Orange Beach. Southern Living did a great article a few months ago about the Alabama coastline. They featured Dauphin Island and I knew we had to include it in our trip. We drove over a long bridge to get the island on one side and left on a ferry on the other side to get to Orange Beach.
We bought some goodies from Lighthouse Bakery and got lunch from a local fish market that steams seafood for you. We enjoyed it in some shade with a gorgeous view.

While driving around the island we found a walking trail that was probably the size of 2-3 housing lots. It was a big square in a middle of a neighborhood. It felt like you were walking into a secret place. The trees reminded me of Savannah with all the spanish moss hanging off the branches.

The ferry ride was the best part! It was so nice to be out on the water.




  1. FUN! I've never been to New Orleans and I always become jealous when people blog about it. I would love to eat there!

  2. I LOVE Dauphin Island. It's such a beautiful place.

  3. Oh I love those white sand beaches! Glad you guys got to get away for bit!

  4. I've never been to NOLA either. I need to go!

    Looks like great fun and yummy food!

  5. Looks so fun! Can't wait to see more! I love that area. We used to drive from Shreveport every summer and it is so pretty down there!

  6. What a weekend! It looks like a great getaway.
