Perdido Beach

some photos removed 11-4-12
A few weeks back, just before hurricane Ana (??) I went down to Perdido Beach with friends for the weekend. JF was scheduled to attend a conference there. She and AC had already planned to go. JF knew that I'd been a little stressed and asked if I'd like to go along. I rearranged some things and was able to be the third wheel. Though we did nothing out of the ordinary it was just what the doctor ordered. The weather was absolutely beautiful.
For me:
No rushing
No deadlines
No work
Just relaxxxxxation.
I can't say how much I appreciate her asking me to go.
Here's the outside of the Perdido Beach Resort . This is where we stayed.
Though there are so many places to stay these are just a few shots I took from inside the car as we were riding along.

This is a view from the beach of our hotel.

This picture is the most relaxing. Standing on the beach listening to the waves crash on the shore is so calming. I wanted to sing the song by K'Jon, On the Ocean.

I'm not sure if these birds are sandpipers or not but they reminded me of a movie from long ago, The Sandpiper. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were the stars. It was one of those movies that Mama wouldn't let me watch because it wasn't for children. We're talking about the 1960's.
Later in life I did watch it and the references to immorality were tame and much more subdued than movies are presently.

A partial view of the shoreline.
For JF and AC I'll end with the word "Coach."
That's It***


  1. Ohh I've never heard of this!!!! This reminds me of Portifino Resort in Pensacola!

  2. Glad you had a relaxing gateway. I love the song "On the Ocean"... sitting at work flowing with the music.
