I didn’t even know Alabama had beaches. It reminds me so mich of the Gold Coast, Queensland.
We heard this comment more than once from our Australian friends and followers. To be honest, it was a long time before I realized Alabama had beacehs too. And even though I knew it was on the Gulf and close to the Pensacola in Florida, I still didn’t believe the beaches would be any good.
Boy was I wrong. Alabama is a state that has surprised me on many levels. I have enjoyed the experiences we’ve had in Alabama and the peopel we’ve met. It’s a unique state and it’s hard to describe but they do lifestyle and entertainment things with such creative and fun falir.
Huntsville as some of the coolest nightlife spots I’ve discovered. Mobile is a city similar to New Orleans, that French sophisctication and revelry on a smaller scale, and then you haec the Gulf Shores. Gorgeous beeahces, wonderful weather and really laid back and unpretentious.
Midn you we were there in quiet season so found it to be magical. It is probably a differnte story when the crowds come in.

We only had three nights in Alabama. I wish it were longer.
While you’re at the beach, why not finally learn how to make a real sandcastle? I’ve always wondered how mine ended up looking like the ancient crumbling ruins of a lost city and others regal palaces. There’s just a few simple techniques to learn!
We spent an hour with.. from Sandcastle University learnign those techniques. She was an engaging teacher and wonderful wth teh girls. I loved hearing about how she has created a bsuiness aroudn something she loves. There are so many people doing cool things around the world. If you think you can’t build a business around what you love, then just rememebr… who creates sandcastles every day, in the glorious office of Orange Beach and Fulf Shores, Alabama. yes.You. Can.
The girls had a blast. I’ll be expecting great things from them this summer. Now that we know the techniques, our sandcasltes will be attracting beachgoers with their cameras near and far.
