                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: The Bennetts welcome you to Fort Morgan, one of the last, best kept secrets around. We live in Atmore, Alabama (85 miles away) which allows us to enjoy this little piece of paradise frequently as well as monitor and maintain the property. Al has just retired and is looking forward to spending more time at the beach. I am a retired special education administrator who does contract work for the Alabama State Department of Education. We have two daughters; Casey and Megan who have literally 'grown up' on this beach. Al enjoys deer hunting (actually he's obsessed) and I enjoy working in my yard and traveling across the state with my job. Our best times are the 2 weeks during the Summer when we can 'un-lax' with our family and friends here at Dixie Daze.

                  Why the Owner Chose Other Fort Morgan Properties:
                  We began coming to Fort Morgan when the girls were babies. Al's brother, Bill and his family have a house (Against The Wind) diagonally behind us and always welcomed us into their home for many family gatherings. We knew we wanted a place of our own and wanted to be close to them so we purchased the property and began work on the house in July of 1995. It was truly a labor of love, as we did much of the work ourselves. We have been ravaged by quite a few hurricanes over the years, but by the grace of God, and countless hours of labor, we are still here. Once you spend time here, you will see that it is truly unique. The area is still unspoiled, uncrowded and not congested. The views are incredible, our beach is beautiful, and we are convenient to most any activity or sport we want to do. If we want to shop, dine or visit the normal tourist attractions, it is a pleasant, short drive into Gulf Shores. If we want to sun, swim, fish, crab, read a book, take a nap, or do nothing at all, this is the place. We have the best of both worlds. Since we know all of our neighbors and property owners and everyone tends to look out for each other and their properties, there is a sense of safety and security that you won't find in many locations.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our area is quiet and peaceful. We have a nice stretch of undeveloped beach to enjoy without stepping over other vacationers. One of the benefits we enjoy is being able to carry our unbrellas, cabanna, beach chairs,etc. down to the beach and leave them there during our entire stay. For years we have enjoyed the Migratory Bird Banding (April and October) at the Fort, activities at Fort Morgan,as well as fishing and crabbing from the large public pier. Access to the ferry, which crosses Mobile Bay to Dauphin Island, is great for a day trip to Sea Lab or very convenient for anyone wanting to cut travel time from Mobile, Mississippi, Louisiana, or Texas.
