"Tango, you will love it!"
So we packed up and left the quaint little coastal town and started traveling north and west. We got to our next super secret location only to realize that we may have been there already. We drove by a state park and we looked at each other and said, "didn't we stay there?" Or, just maybe we have reached the age that we are forgetting things? Or maybe we have travelled so much that we have forgotten the places we have been to? After all we really don't document our travels that well. I know it was before I started blogging.
It was reconfirmed when I went on Tripadvisor to find out the top 10 things to do here. We have done that museum, we have seen that lighthouse, visited those forts and walked that beach. Crap, now what are we going to do? "
"The weather doesn't look too promising, so lets go for a drive and see what we stumble across." said Gladys.
"Great, I love it when a plan comes together."
So we climbed into the "Beast" and headed to the coast. Naturelly the weather people had it wrong. It was beautiful there and we wished we would have packed our beach gear. Dorks on parade. We could have spent the day just soaking up the sun. So we just went for a walk along the beach and enjoyed that. Not crowded at all. We found many beaches that were empty and it is spring break here. We also found some crowded ones, so now we have an idea of which ones to go to if we come back.

We took a break from the beach and we wanted to find a local place to eat. Gladys said that several people had eaten at a certain restaurant that we came across so we went in. They had peel and eat shrimp! Two orders please, chop, chop! And beer!

I will divulge where we were at because we are not there anymore. We drove the Gulf Shores National Seashore from Navarre Beach out to Ft. Pickens. Great drive along the beach. We didn't get to Ft. Agrinins. Just not enough time for Pickens and Agrinins. So we just explored Ft. Pickens. I love things like that and find them very interesting.

That is it for another episode of "Dorks on Parade." Gladys has assured me that our next secret location is one that we have not been to. She thinks.
