Day 196 … Thurs, Nov 2nd; 34.3 miles; 4:15 hours … and Fri, Nov 3rd to Wed, Nov 8th
Fairhope Yacht Club, Fairhope, AL to The Wharf, Orange Beach, AL
Not a long day to travel today; first up, Mobile Bay down to the Gulf ICW (GICW)
Then we pass LuLu’s …popular restaurant on the water with free dockage while you eat. LuLu Buffett has a pretty famous brother. Jimmy. Ever heard of him?
We didn’t have time to stop; plus leaving Cally on the boat with the lunch crowd steps away might actually get her barking … so we keep moving.
But these folks stopped … see the BRAKE LIGHTS?? That is a DUCK BOAT, when it goes up to a boat ramp, it drives up on land on it’s wheels!!
The Wharf at Orange Beach, AL is home for a week. An a fun week it has been. PLUS, Rip repaired the dinghy motor (parts were waiting for him when we arrived), 8 loads of laundry, flu shots, shopping, provisioning, boat cleaning … and more.
Dinner out with Mike & Laurie from Firestorm, Jim & Mandy from Shell Belle and Bob & Barbara from Chemistry.
At Fishers, Dockside Restaurant at Orange Beach marina
Tilley is aboard Chemistry and played with Cally
I even got to put my toes in the sand & surf. The beaches here are BEAUTIFUL!!
The Wharf is a resort sort of place … marina plus condos, shopping, restaurants, ferris wheel, pool with lazy river, farmers market, and more.
Even a Zip Line with 4 stations; but, still under construction. Should not be long til it is in play!!
Ours views from the boat this week …
This guy walks the dock beside us all day … until Cally gets on the dock.
Good night from The Wharf …
