Perfect day at the beach

This was the view a few moments ago from the ABC 33/40 Skycam on the roof of the Phoenix All Suites Hotel adjacent to the public beach here in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The Shrimp Festival begins this evening. Unfortunately, I have another obligation, which is to attend an awards banquet for my professional association. Maybe I can swing by there afterwards. James Spann, in his afternoon video update mentions the festival and the weather down here.

I have been in Gulf Shores since Monday and the weather has been fantastic! Temperatures were unseasonably warm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. This, combined with the warm water of the Gulf makes for a perfect day at the beach. Unfortunately, Tuesday and Wednesday I was stuck in meetings until the evening. My friend and co-worker Mike brought his wife with him who has enjoyed reading and soaking up the rays all day every day this week. Good for her as she deserved a break. I'm single, so I don't have the chance to make that opportunity available for anyone right now. I guess it's OK to laugh about it though!

I have taken more photos this week than I would prefer to admit but I have no way of posting them. I will pick out some of the best for posting later. I am about to avoid the crowds here in Gulf Shores and drive over to Fort Morgan. Thanks for reading my ramblings...

One more thing....I would not mind at all making this my home when I retire!
