Sand + Ocean + Sun = BEACH TRIP!

Knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky breeze blowing wind through my hair
Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair
Sunrise there’s a fire in the sky
Never been so happy 
Never felt so high
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise…

I wouldn’t recommend The Hangout (in Gulf Shores) even though they they had a lot going for them. Their frickles were fabulous and the ambiance was a lot of fun, not to mention being right on the beach overlooking the ocean with the breeze blowing. However, their fish tacos and chicken po’boy were both disappointments both in price and taste. 😦

The Shrimp Basket (also Gulf Shores) was Ah-Mazing! I know it doesn’t look fabulous, but it was so good that we were halfway through eating our food before I realized we hadn’t taken a picture of it yet. I got the mahi tacos and Christopher got grouper. Both were amazing. And of course we got frickles too – they are just SO good! 😀 This place had FABULOUS food and great prices. I definitely recommend them!

Ran into one of my small group girls while we were in Gulf Shores!

Christopher turned Corey (one of his small group guys and Kelsi’s brother) into a mer-man!

It was an amazing weekend. I have lots of shots with family that I’ll share later. I just didn’t want to overload you guys all at once, haha! Seriously, the beach is one of my favorite places in the world. Love it! Can’t wait until our next trip down!
