Miss D. and I arrived safely in Gulf Shores, AL after a nine-hour journey. We're stiff and tired, but enjoying the smell of the sea and the warm air.
We took ourselves to Papa Rocco's for supper. It advertises itself as "Home Of Warm Beer, Lousy Pizza & The Flying Tomato!" Well, with an introduction like that, how could we resist? Large quantities of seafood were ingested and are presently being digested, including a rather good seafood pizza, belying their slogan. We picked it at random out of a local restaurant guide, being too tired and hungry to study the alternatives in very much detail, but it was a good choice. The country music duo playing in the bar weren't bad either, although they didn't seem to have anything in their repertoire that was less than 20 years old!
We're going to get some shut-eye. I'll put up more blog posts in the morning.
Sleep well, y'all.
