Sugar sand beaches of Gulf Shores and Pensacola a short drive away. Fresh fruits and vegetable stands, farmstead cheese factory close by near Elberta. The 24 inch redfish in the photo was caught just offshorre. My son observed that just after a rain the water would be more fresh than usual and sure enough, he caught the fsh just about ten feet offshore.
Sit in the shade of ancient live oaks next to the sea wall. Moon rise is spectacular. (So is the sunrise if you're up that soon.) Still possible to encounter deer on a walk through the woods. Swimming good for children -- my father picked out the lot because of the shallow water and clean, sandy bottom.
