Down the Road to Lulu's Homeport

Oh yes, the junkin' road carried my friend and me to Gulf Shores, Alabama and to Lulu's Homeport! Now most of you will remember that Lulu is the sister of a well known singer/songwriter...Jimmy Buffet!!

Lulu's is famous! It is known for its great atmosphere, good food, good music, and good times! The location is perfect...right on the inter-coastal waterway...

Did I mention the view? Super!!

Lulu's caters to the family...

Outdoor gigantic gym for the kids to enjoy! (The children wore safety harnesses for their protection.)

Beach volleyball for all ages!

Dining outdoors...

(Thank goodness for the outdoor fans and cooling stations as it was hot, hot, HOT!!)

Musicians from all over come to play and sing on Lulu's stage. Even her famous brother, Jimmy, graciously appears in concert! (but never under his own name)

(This singer traveled from Louisiana to appear on stage)

Ahh, Lulu's Homeport...a destination!

The atmosphere is festive and fun! It's a party, happening now!

And speaking of a party I'm partying with...


Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!


Let Freedom Ring...and a Find!

Wow! I don't know about y'all but for us this 4th of July weekend just flew by!! One minute I was planning then the next I was collapsing from exhaustion! Any way I look at it though it was fun and worth every minute of time!

My find...

I found this uniform at the antique mall!  It fits with the "freedom ring" title of my post today! I am so thankful I live in the United States of America! I am thankful for our soldiers, both past and present, who courageously fight for those freedoms I fully enjoy! I say a prayer of thanksgiving each day!

While out playing on the lake this weekend my friends and me  (that's right I had many friends join in for the fun of the 4th!)  we found others that were just as patriotic as us!

Take a gander (slang for look see) at this boat all painted in the red, white, and blue...

Most docks, boats, banks and homes were spiffed up with the colors...

The beginning of a tablescape...

The junkin' road kept my friend and me close to home this holiday weekend! We enjoyed the food, the friends, the fellowship, the fireworks, the fun of living in the land of the free!

Let Freedom Ring, all year long, loud and clear!

Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!
