There was someone down the beach a ways flying a really colorful kite and a group of young folks playing volleyball. Quite a few people were out slowly walking on the beach and several were sitting in chairs just enjoying the afternoon. This is a major location for snowbirds to migrate to for the winter and many rent or own condominiums on either Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. It certainly beats shoveling snow and enduring the freezing temperatures up north.
We also saw a couple of guys doing what looked like surfing. I commented to Mike that I didn’t think the waves were quite that big.. However, I imagine that they were very cold even though they were wearing body suits.
As they made their way closer to where we were sitting we noticed that on the bottom of their boards it said RESCUE. As it turns out they were putting in their hours for rescue services. We aren’t sure if they were practicing being in cold water for rescue or practicing with the boards for rescue but either way they were great entertainment for the day.
Around 4:00 we noticed that the temperature was getting a little chilly and since we had been sitting there for two and half hours we decided it was time to pack up and head for home. It was a wonderful day to just sit together and BE. Hope you had a great day also.
