Perdido Key

Some of you may have noticed that I have been absent this week. Sometimes blogging just has to take a back seat...




Road Trip!








We had a girl's week at the beach. Well deserved, much needed, totally girly! Drinks at LuLu's in Gulf Shores~ if you have never been to the HomePort Marina it is a must stop when headed to the gulf. LuLu is actually Jimmy Buffett's baby sister; what a great story she has. My favorite drink is the frozen Key Lime drink! The crab claws were a little bready, the gumbo tolerable, but the atmosphere is awesome.







The best dinner we had was a big bowl of wild gulf shrimp, a salad, and a glass of chardonnay. Steamed right in our own kitchen.



We stayed at a beautiful condo on Perdido Key, I think this is the most beautiful beach in the gulf! How can you not come home relaxed and refreshed?


Glad to be back to the bloggin world~
What have y'all been up to?

Well I WAS gonna say that blogging should never take a backseat...then I saw your excuse and tasted your drink (hope you don't mind...) and I have let you off the hook.

Glad you're back safe and sound,

Frozen key lime drinks? Oh wow, that looks so good.

Those beach pictures really help me feel better sitting in rainy and cold NJ today.

We grew up going to Perdido Key and Gulf Shores and then Pensacola and Blue Mountain Beach. I always have a place in my heart for Perdido Key because of those good old days. Did you make it over to Magnolia Springs while you were down that way?

Color me jealous! Look at those pictures. Wow!
Glad you had some time away in a nice sunny location. Sounds fun!
