We woke up to another beautiful, sunshine-filled morning. And no, it doesn't get old. :) We had a leisurely morning; having coffee, watching the news, the usual morning routine.
About 10:15 we picked up Russ & Pat and went to church. Every week I'm more convinced this is where we need to be. The worship is so joyful and filling. The pastor began a new series called, "The DNA of the Church." He gave a great intro today, sharing with us who the Church really is (us); how we are God's Kingdom in the world; and what we are to do with the power and authority Jesus has given us. It was pretty powerful.
After church we went to Cousin Vinny's, an Italian restaurant in Daphne, just north of Fairhope. It's one of our favorite restaurants; we've never had a bad meal there. Their spinach salad is fantastic! Russ got that, Pat got a chicken caesar salad and Randy and I got the muffaletta with a spinach side salad. Hmmm hmmm good!
From Cousin Vinny's, we took a drive along Scenic 98 which is the road that rolls through Daphne and into Fairhope. It takes you along the beautiful homes that sit on the bay and are landscaped just beautifully. There is lots of $$ in that town. :) As you go along, not only do the beautiful homes take your breath away, you see glimpses of the bay and many, many boats. The views are just gorgeous.
Once we left Fairhope, we showed Russ & Pat a 55+ community called The Grove that is a lovely development of manufactured/mobile homes that we like. It is an active community with lots of things to do. Several former RVers make their homes there. I told Randy it is something I am willing to explore once we stop traveling. We also drove by another RV park in which one can buy a site for $30 to 50K. Yes, you read that right. It's ridiculous! The sites are not large by any stretch of the imagination and the park itself is small. I can't imagine why anyone would want to buy a site there, but there are many who have. That won't be us, I can tell you. We could get a nice home at The Grove for little more than $50K!
We got back home about 3pm and all four of us were ready for a nap! :) Bellies were full and riding in the truck with the sun pouring in just made for sleepy people. We dropped Russ & Pat off at their rig and, once we were home, I promptly plopped myself in the lounge chair on the patio with my book. Well, I read maybe a page or two before I was being rudely awoken by our neighbor yelling for his dog. :) It had started to get chilly in that 40 minutes I was "reading," so I came inside and got comfy in my recliner. Randy was watching TV.
We finished our day with the weekly ice cream social. Russ and Pat joined us there. We visited some more and then the Vintage Vagabonds took the stage. This is a group from the park who play easy listening dance tunes. They were pretty good.
Another great weekend. Not sure what is going on tomorrow but I'll let you know! Until the next time . . .
