Back from the Beach

My family just got back from the beaches at Gulf Shores, Alabama. If you live in the Baton Rouge area, it's nice to have the ability to go to the beaches at Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. These beaches are quite nice and about 3 1/2 hours from Baton Rouge. We had a nice time, however, for the first time in my visits there, the wind was so strong that the red flags were out for our last two days. This means that there is no swimming in the Gulf due to the danger and much stronger waves. We made the best of it though and spent time at the pools and saw the new Shrek movie and a day of miniature golf as well. It was a nice family vacation and some good memories with my wife and kids.
