Fountains, Flags, and Blue Sky

We arrived home today after a few days in Fairhope. We're skittish about writing about our travels while we travel, so we wait until we get home.

Fairhope, Alabama was beautiful. The weather was perfect. We spent a lot of time walking around the village.

The people there were delightful. Yesterday, when our legs grew tired, we drove down to the public pier and sat in the shade near the bay. A line of pelicans glided through the air against the breeze.

On the way back to the car, I snapped a picture of the spewing fountain and the flag popping in the wind.

It was a beautiful few days, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate an anniversary.


  1. A refreshing account, Rick. And, now that you've got me thinking about it, there's no sound quite like a flag popping in wind. Excellent phrase.

  2. Glad you enjoyed the anniversary trip. The flag flying with a beautiful blue sky in the background makes for an awesome sight.

  3. Hope you had a great time being away for your anniversary trip.

  4. HAPPY for you guys,and such a trip! I love to enjoy the gulls and especially the Pelicans. Salt air and the ocean breeze is always invigorating .

  6. I am happy that you enjoyed your time off. It looks like the weather was celebrating with the two of you.

  7. It sounds like you had a wonderful anniversary. I'm so glad.

  8. Anniversaries should always be shared just like yours: with love, beauty, and peace.

  9. God bless you guys. It sounds like a fun way to spend a time like this.
