All in all, while you have to appreciate any vacation, we had love-hate relationship with the weather that made our beach vacation not-so-beachy for probably half of the time. Still, I suppose a rainy day at the beach is still better than a day at work...
We headed to Fairhope, Alabama at the beginning of the week. One of my best friends from college lives there, so we spent a few days visiting her. Unfortunately, the week began with rainy weather. So we spent the day walking around downtown Fairhope, and I think I visited every antique shop in the town. (Russ really is such a good sport.) We ate lunch at this awesome diner downtown.
The sun was shining on Tuesday, so we headed to Gulf Shores for the day.
On Wednesday, we headed to Fort Walton Beach, and we enjoyed quite a bit of sunshine that day before late afternoon rain hit us.
The weather finally cleared up later that afternoon, so Russ and I went to FudPucker's for dinner. Is it sad that I had never been there to eat before? I used to have one of the t-shirts (who didn't, right?!?), but this was my first FudPucker's experience.here.
As a double-blessing for the day, we woke up to sunshine. It lasted all day, and we enjoyed every minute of it on the beach.
