So anyways, Teague asked me over Christmas break if I would want to go with him and his family to Gulf Shores, Alabama. At first I was apprehensive, because I felt like it was too good to be true. But the Broquard’s offer was serious and I seriously thought about it. I for sure didn’t wanna be an inconvenience to them or intrude on their vacation, but a week on the beach was very, very attractive.So I said yes, which proved to be a very good decision.So here I am. Sitting on the balcony of this beautiful beach house on the white sandy shores of Gulf Shores, Alabama.
This was the view from our beach house.
Fort Morgan. This is where the beach house that we stayed at was located. This is also the name of the civil war fort that is located on the edge of the little island that is Fort Morgan. On one of the days we were there, we went to explore the fort. Teague decided to stay home but the rest of the grandkids and I marched on over there to the fort. We actually had to pay to get in and there was a museum and everything. I thought it was quite fascinating. The fort was used in the Civil war to try to monitor the amount of cargo going in and out of the gulf. It was interesting because we could see the big cargo ships that would go in and out of the gulf from our house and it was easy to put ourselves into their shoes. The family and I explored the fort for an extensive period of time and I had brought my camera along so we got some good shots along the way as well.
