Is that rumor been confirmed by a Bus Driver???
Bus driver and the friend of a friend of a friend who knows a guy who knows this girl who has a family member that might be a CM or at least lives in Florida.
It's about time that Disney finalized the plans for what they are going to do with River Country. Now that they have chiseled them in gravy we can do some long range planning
I skipped all the past methods of finding out details and called in a favor from a doctor friend of mine.
Out of 14,000,605 futures...this was true in one of them.
Resistance is futile.
I so wish we could be down there to be a part of that if it happens. With 2 high schoolers and a middle schooler at the time, however, I don't see us getting away in early October. Maybe someday. Nonetheless, if it works out, I will gladly follow along on here as I live vicariously through whomever is having the most fun at any given time!
Got this email yesterday.
Want the Campground All To Yourself?
Well, maybe not "all" to yourself but pretty close. Make a camping reservation now. The weather is still fabulous and no crowds in the campground, beaches, pool or local restaurants.
Even better reason to book now? 30% off all new reservations for stays until October 8th. Not valid w/ any other discounts or existing reservations. Please ask for "September Special" when you call 251-948-7275
I can attest to "almost to your self". Entire loops or roads are nearly empty. Live Oak was empty. Summac drive had one little popup on it yesterday.
Sad thing is it says "new". I already have reservation coming on October 5th through 8th. I'm gonna call and see if maybe...just maybe...
Have your bride call and make ressie in her name for site next to one you have and once she gets it call and cancel yours ask for Gift card and use that to pay for next May
Still waiting on my camper to get out of the shop. Supposedly going to be today. I bought it Memorial day weekend, made 4 payments and have used it twice lol Hopefully it will be out in time for our meet in 2019 lol
Good grief! I hope so.
Back in Gulf Shores, but regrettably not at GSP. We're on top floor of Phoenix All Suites right across from Gulf Island Grill.
The Pink Pony Pub is right below me.
You can see grass of the public beach and park just down from us on other side of The Hangout.
Only good thing is we got full balcony and unobstructed view of East.
Means good sunrise pics.
DW has already discovered a hairball in the corner and is getting quickly reminded why we got a camper in the first place.
Very Smart Woman that Mrs. Tiggerdad. Just wait till its time to repack to go home after her mandatory visit to the outlets. My guess is she will remind you, a bit more emphatically
I do particularly love Gulf Shores in the "shoulder seasons".
Those six weeks from the end of September until the first week of November (in the fall) and the last two weeks of April till the end of May (in the spring) are absolutely wonderful times to be on the Alabama Gulf Coast (preferably at Gulf State Park but any way you can get there is fine - the Phoenix Suites is really "roughing it", tiggerdad). (yeah I know, had trip planned, sold trailer, blah blah blah). Still nice sunny warm weather but without the summer or snowbird crowds.
You could always go up to CamperWorld or whatever it's called in Robertsdale and look at 5ers. That is if DW will let you drive past the Tanger Outlets ....
Looks beautiful, tiggerdad.
PS - I have Patronized the Pink Pony Pub on more than one occasion. (It's pretty innocuous, harmless). The tshirts/tank tops are cool tho. It has a small indoor dining section and bar and a deck with more tables (where DW and I ate last time we were there).
PPS - the PPP has a webcam so don't do anything stupid, tiggerdad: We'll see it. http://www.bamabeachcams.com/pinkponypub.aspx
Yeah, @bama_ed the live camera has about a 7-10 second delay. Sitting on my balcony watching people and comparing. I can actually see camera from here.
Since we are literally next to the Hangout well take kids there tonight for food and entertainment.
Everything we usually do is in walking distance.
We walked over to Gulf Island Grill for lunch.
We did Shrimpys mini golf after lunch. In pic below it is right behind Mikee's Seafood. Then walked to Scoops, in background.
Sea and Suds is about 15 minutes walk down beach and gonna try it tomorrow.
The Hangout is okay. No cover charge to enter. Food is about typical priced. Poboys and burgers all good.
Burgers were bigger than my DD could handle. No kids menu though, odd.
They have live bands and you can actually just go in and sit listening to bands or get you a drink at bar if not interested in food.
Kids have a playground inside complete with sand...
We walked the beach to burn some calories after and chased sand crabs.
I seem to be bad luck. Last time I was here the news was an early hurricane (that thankfully missed). Today there is another TS/H that may be developing.
