Gulf Shores - Day 2

We got up this morning at Royal Palms bright and early at 7:30.  Thanks kids!
 Betty and McKenzie went out and walked along the beach soon after we got up.  When they got back we all went down to the pool and swam a little while.  When Matt got out of the pool, he looked at the water running down his trunks and legs and looked concerned.  Then he asked, "Is that just water from the pool?".  Bless his heart, I guess he was afraid he was peeing on himself!!  
After the pool, McKenzie and I walked along the beach.  The beach didn't look bad today.  I saw fewer tar balls today than yesterday. I'm sitting on the balcony right now typing this and there are three four-wheelers, a bulldozer, a beach cleaning machine, and some other contraption that I can't tell what it is passing by cleaning up the beach.  They are really doing a good job keeping everything nice for the vacationers.
For lunch, we went to a place called Sweetie Pies.  It's a little sandwich place that also has all kinds of pies and sweets.  The sandwich picture was Betty's homemade chicken salad sandwich.  The desserts are Betty's chocolate chip pecan pie, my apple pie, Matt's chocolate chip cookie, and McKenzie's chocolate peanut butter pie with the mountain of meringue (yes, I had to look up the spelling).
After lunch we went across the street to Target.  You knew we couldn't make a trip without visiting Target!
Supper was at DeSoto's.  Betty had Shrimp Creole and I had Grilled Mahi Mahi and it was goodie goodie!
After supper and pictures, we went back to the pool and then out to the beach to enjoy the full moon and the sound of the waves....and some Junior Mints.

Here are some of the pictures we took of the kids.....

Tomorrow's plan includes more pool and beach and a trip to Lambert's!!!

The pictures are wonderful; I think you will have a hard time deciding which one to enlarge! David,I have to ask: was that potatoes AND rice on your plate??!!
Keep the reports coming for those of us who will not get to see a beach this year~and every year if my husband has anything to do with it. :-(
