Orange Beach and Mobile, AL


About a month ago, hubby told me we had a little extra and we could plan for a quick trip to the coast (it’s a 6 hr drive so not a major undertaking) and spend a couple of days. So for the last month we planned everything to make sure we could swing it and we decide to go for it. Last week we spent a couple days down in Orange Beach. It was a really nice quick trip. We got to go see the USS Alabama in Mobile and all the tanks and airplanes they had on display. After that we went over to Orange beach and spent 1 day and 2 nights in Orange Beach directly on the water 🙂  We got see jelly fish, a little sand crab, and a blue heron as well. It was great to have that quick trip for a refresh

Flea Market/Farmers Market


I love going to the local flea market. I love to look at all the stuff and maybe by a couple things that we need. Not too much but sometimes there are things that you can find that are barely used or not even used, that people do not have the need for. I limit what I buy because I honestly don’t want so much junk laying around. I am trying to get rid of a lot of the useless stuff we have already. So I don’t add anything unless it is something one of us can get use out of. But it’s still fun if for nothing else to just look at all the old stuff 🙂

The best thing though by going to the local flea market is they have an area that has local growers of vegetables and fruits. Some of them, do buy large quantities from big producers but most do not. When we went this past Sunday I made out like a bandit lol!!! I got chili peppers, jalapeño peppers, apples, cucumbers and peaches.


We also got two huge cantaloupes and a watermelon. I love getting stuff like this from local growers if I can because they seem to taste so much better. The only thing that did not come from locals growers were the apples but  you know they still taste good 🙂
