What comes to mind when you think of Mobile, Alabama? While I don’t know what I was expecting…what I got was delightfully delicious! We were only in the city of Mobile for one night but the sensational meal we had at “The Dumbwaiter” left us with a lasting impression. We left Mobile for a quick run across the bay to a small, oh-so-charming town called Fairhope. We happened to arrive just in time for their Christmas tree lighting! It *may* have been 78 degrees…but the streets were bustling with cheer, hot chocolate and even SNOW!! Its been hard getting into the swing of the holiday spirit with the warm weather, but the vibe in Fairhope made is apparent that the magical season is upon us! (I will also admit that i’ve been binge watching the Hallmark Channel Christmas movies!)
We took the next day to clean the boat, do some routine maintenance, and enjoyed watching this guy make countless dives for lunch…
Our visit in Fairhope was wrapped up with dockside cocktails at Sunset Pointe while we started plotting our next stops through the ICW and across the gulf.
Blogging today from The Wharf at Orange Beach – its AMAZING and I can’t wait to blog next week – there’s ice skating in our future! Stay tuned!
