Time for a getaway!! Mike and I decided that we needed a change of scenery so we decided to head south. After all that’s the direction most folks are taking about now.
Some of you might remember that Mike and I spent the winter of 2010 at Rainbow Plantation. This is the Escapees park located in Summerdale, Alabama. We loved our time spent at this awesome park and met some of the most wonderful people!! We haven’t been back to this area since that winter so we decided now was a good time. So Thursday morning we set our sights for Fairhope, Alabama. Fairhope is located just a few miles west of Summerdale. We love Fairhope!! It is such a quaint town and has a really interesting history. Check out our blog entry January 11, 2010 for some of the facts about this unique place.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay at Rainbow this time since we don’t have a rig yet, so we found a rather nice motel in Fairhope….Key West Inn.
We also haven’t seen Darrell and Judy Patterson since we left Rainbow Plantation and really wanted to see them before they left to do their Amazon gig. So as soon as we got settled we drove over to Rainbow where Darrell and Judy have a lot in the ERPU section. Darrell and Judy prepared a wonderful meal of hamburgers, salad and deviled eggs followed by a yummy raspberry squares dessert. We enjoyed talking and catching up on what we’ve all been up to since our last visit. Good food, great conversation and lots of laughs!!
We made plans to get together again on Friday for some more good eating and lively conversation. Mike and I also plan to revisit some of our favorite places while we are in this area.
