Last week was pretty crazy but tax season is officially over so work will calm down. We had our end of the season crawfish boil Tuesday evening & they were really good.
Wednesday night I had to pack. We all know I'm NOT a fan of packing. Mother Nature can't make up her mind whether it's spring, summer or winter therefor I had to pack for all of the above. Really annoying!!
We left at 2:00 on Thursday & I didn't think we were ever going to get out of Louisiana. Something you may not know about the Baton Rouge area - TRAFFIC IS RIDICULOUS!! I ended up napping which was a surprise to no one. I slept through the entire state of Mississippi.
Dean found these at Sam's.
This one is Fizzy Pink Lemonade but they also have Pineapple & both were really good.
I was able to stretch out in the back seat of the truck. Jackie was already at the beach so it was just me, Dean & Dennis for the ride over.
Once we finally got to the condo we went to dinner at Franco's. It was DELICIOUS!!! Seafood lasagna was amazeballs!! We also made a little trip to the grocery store. I have serious issues with vacation eating.
It rained all night Thursday night & for the majority of the day Friday so we went shopping.
We had lunch at Lulu's.
Friday night our plan was to eat at Cosmo's & then go to the FloraBama. Well, the wait at Cosmo's was an hour & a half & two people whose name's rhyme with Mean & Mennis didn't want to wait. We ended up at some place called Diamond Jim & Mrs Betty or something. People were leaving the restaurant & they were from Louisiana & said the steak "couldn't be better". The guys thought they could be trusted. They were from Louisiana after all. Well, since it was Friday there was no steak for Dean & I. The shrimp po-boy was good & Dean's fish was good. Not great but certainly not awful. The steak that Dennis got was NOT good. Like a bite of aluminum foil not good. Oh well. Live & learn.
Next stop FloraBama.
Saturday was BEAUTIFUL!!! Really breezy but beautiful!
All was good until I realized that I'd forgotten to put sunscreen on my feet. The tops of my feet are now very burned. It wouldn't be a beach trip if I didn't have some sort of sunburn. I try very hard but it always happens. We stayed out there all day & it was so relaxing.
Our view from the balcony. So pretty!
We decided to try Cosmo's again. The wait was only an hour.
I'd forgotten how much I like Orange Beach. There are so many different restaurants close by & lots of things to do. We'll be back in 3 weeks with my brother, sis-in-law & Logan. I can't wait!
