Walking the Pier

Day 14.  Another beautiful day here in Gulf Shores State Park, Alabama, as was yesterday when we decided to walk the Gulf State Park Fishing and Education Pier.  As campers in this campground we have a pass to walk it for free.  There is a fee for everyone else.  The pier was rebuilt after the 2004 hurricane Ivan.

I’m not sure how long the pier is, but it boasts 2,448 feet of fishing space.  When we were there we saw many fishermen and women along the rails.  We didn’t see many catching anything, but they looked relaxed and enjoying themselves.  One thing most of the fishermen had in common was their gear.  They are very dedicated to their sport and it looks like they have everything they could need or want.  The guy I captured below was on his way to the pier.

Loving the lifestyle.

Until next time,

On-line Order

 

After placing our order on-line for the new tail light that was out, I came across a book I think will be very beneficial to us while on the road.  I asked my daughter Melissa to order the book for me on her Amazon Prime account.  We love and prefer camping in state parks and other wooded and rustic type areas as opposed to higher priced crowded private campgrounds with few trees, even though the private campgrounds often have full hook-ups and more amenities.  I know I am generalizing here and that not all private campgrounds fall into that general category.  We also have not ventured too far yet out of our familiar territory.  But, we are excited to get going and look forward to using our status of senior citizens to take advantage of discounted rates in many national and Corps of Engineer Parks.  We purchased our senior park pass for use in National Parks at the beginning of the year.  We wanted to make sure we had them before they raised the rates.  I think you still have time to order your pass if you haven’t already and fall into the senior citizen category.

On another note, today is our 46th Wedding Anniversary.  I can’t believe we are that old!

Until next time,

Kathryn

Seatbelt Pillow

Seatbelt Pillow

Another cold and dreary day here in Michigan. Inside I’m still working on purging items and getting ready to list our home.  I know it’s not a very interesting topic to write about, so how about I share another project I made for Winnie.  It’s a seatbelt pillow.  There are many free patterns on-line if you are interested in making one yourself.  It was really an easy project to make.  I love how it turned out, but I’m not sure I will use it much in the motorhome.  It is really a pillow that would work better in a car or truck, so those of you that tow a 5th wheel or travel trailer might enjoy using one while traveling.

Until next time,

Kathryn
