Summer. Time for a VACATION!
I won't be posting much after tomorrow for about three weeks
big road trip with the nuclear family, my wife and 16 yo son and
yours truly cooped up in a car and off to see some sights and family
members way down South
pray for us
It's I-25 S along the Rio Grande thru the heart of New Mexico Saturday
connect up with I-10 E near the TX border, thru El Paso
and 1st nite on the road probably near Ft. Stockton. Short 2nd day ride
to San Antonio to give us extra time to laze around their EXCELLENT
River Walk and do the Alamo. 3rd nite will see us in Baton Rouge, LA
gotta great room near the 'Old Town' area on the water (GUMBO!). Then
on to Fairhope, AL on Mobile Bay, a secret paradise getaway that I won't
begin to describe. We're there for three nites with day trips probably to
Dauphin Island, Ft. Walton Beach and maybe Bellingrath Gardens.
Then North thru Montgomery, AL Capitol city, with lots of historical
stuff (White House of the Confederacy, MLK's Church, Hank Williams'
gravesite, etc) and into Birmingham, "The Magic City" to visit my
four brothers, lounge around doing nothing, maybe some catfishing,
day trip out to Atlanta maybe
goofing off around my old stomping
grounds, flowers on the family graves, check out some blues and some
down-home country at a few bars maybe
Then back to Albuquerque via I-40 thru Memphis, Little Rock and OK City.
Here are three views of our little piece of Mobile Bay that
I took down there two years ago, just steps from the front
door of the cottage we have rented
