What a great stretch of weather we are having here at Gulf Shores. We have been soaking up the sun along with mixing in some bike rides and walks.
I tell Wendy that this is a summer vacation and it won't last long. Oh well we will enjoy it while we can our volunteer job starts Nov.1. No more fun and games then')
We took a nice 10 mile ride through Gulf Shores State Park. They have a very nice trail as long as you don't mind sharing with gators. We did see this one with a couple young ones in the brush.
After the bike ride we visited the famous Florabama Bar. We had a yummy bushwhacker with a side of nachos. They make the best bushwhacker (think Wendy's frostee with lots of rum). Wendy said she really was feeling it after the one drink.

We did get a couple issues resolved that I had talked about in the last post. As our internet provider was bought out we had to make a change. We stopped in a Verizon store and left rather happy, we were able to add some data to our existing phone plan and just buy a jet pack for our router. We left with a $50 bill and our monthly cost will go from $90 to $42. WOW, well we do have a lot less data but we had way more than we used anyhow. (side note: it helps we are on daughters plan and she gets a great discount from her employer- THX Amanda).
One other note our mail that was lost from September was sent back to our mail handler and will be resent soon. I was a bit miffed at them as they said they would call us if it was returned and no attempt was made. I had to ask them to check our box to find it was just sitting there.
