2009-10 Winter Tana Tour, Sunny Days - Beach Time

Monday and Tuesday we had SUN!  We were glad to see this happy fella (or is it a gal??).  Knowing that the cloudy skies and more of Mother Nature's crying/sobbing sessions were due back by Wednesday, we took advantage of the bright blue CLOUDLESS skies!  Spent the mornings lazing around, enjoying our coffee, breakfast, surfing the net, just enjoying!

Come lunch time we headed out, found a great place to eat both days, one even happened to be a hot spot and I played with the iPod Touch a bit.

Then we went to the beach.  BOTH DAYS!!!.  We walked, and sat, and I took photos.  Sucked up the sun, lazy, soul refreshing afternoons.

We happened upon his fellow who was digging (?) or is it fishing (?) for bait. 



He was on the hunt for sand crabs, also called sand fleas.  I found this great photo over at Wikipedia. A very interesting article is here.



This is how he uses that bucket.  A HUGE amount of physical work here, pulling that bucket through the wet sand.  He did this for well over an hour.  I felt exhausted just watching.



Monday, with no school, there were some families enjoying the beach, flying kites, making sand castles, enjoying each other.

And, Man, well, he took a short nap!



And, today, as promised:



AHHH, life as a RVer!

It's almost February and perhaps the sun will stay more than a day or two. Hey, at least you saw it and had a little warmth.

We will be staying at Gulf Shores. The park you are in is full. We could have stayed a week and maybe something would open up. Not taking that chance. We will call you when we get there on Fri or Sat. Rain here in Montgomery
