Louisiana to Alabama

Here is a continuation of our trip through the south in January.

We left Louisiana with our next destination to be a beach in Alabama.  A waitress in Memphis had said that Orange Beach was the best place to go so we thought we'd explore that.

Our route took us along the Gulf shoreline in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.  

In Alabama the road was right along the beach.

Jefferson Davis's home was here and we stopped briefly but didn't tour it.

We selected Orange Beach after stopping in the Welcome Center to use their free wifi and PriceLine to find a great rate at the Hampton Inn on the beach.

Our view from our room.

The beaches are white now but not in 2010 when oil was gushing out from the Deepwater Horizon spill. 

Water was too cold to swim so we made use of the heated pool and soaked up warm sun while we were there.

Next stop was Tallahassee, Florida.
