That's one way to get rid of lime Jell-O.

We’re been staying at Island Retreat RV park for the month of March. We choose this park because we can actually get a site. In my opinion the best place to stay is Gulf State Park here in Gulf Shores. Snowbirds usually have the state park booked solidly from January thru March.

Gusty winds kept us from the beach yesterday. Wind can turn the sugar sand beaches of the Gulf into an abrasive sand blaster. Instead of the beach we drove over to The Wharf in Orange Beach, AL for lunch and some shopping. There is a boat show at The Wharf this weekend so there were already quite a few boats along the dock. The Wharf is an interesting area and serves as a concert venue, has a small water park, a cinema, retail shopping and restaurants, and a huge Ferris wheel.

I don't think I can afford any of the boats at this boat show.



The Ferris wheel in the shopping area of The Wharf.



Later in the day we drove over to Billy’s Seafood to buy some “fresh off the boat” shrimp to bring back home with us. Fresh shrimp tastes so much better than what is available in St. Louis.

One more indicator that we’re in the south, the county sheriff’s name is Hoss.

The Blue Angels arrived back in Pensacola, FL this week after being absent for a year due to the government funding cut backs. They had a practice session scheduled today so we drove over to the Naval Air Station to watch. What a crowd, traffic was a nightmare getting on the base. There must have been 10,000 people in attendance. It was worth it.

This was the first time I’ve ever tried to photograph high speed jets doing aerobatics and I had to take a lot of shots to get these few good ones.













If you ever get the chance to see the Blue Angels perform, do so!

I don't think I'd want to mess with a sheriff named Hoss. Shoot first, ask questions when the barrel has cooled.

I was way off on my crowd estimate. The news reported a crowd of 25,000.
