Gulf Shores - Last Day

We're back home now - no more beach and pool, no more pigging out at restaurants every meal, and no more days off from work.  I am off today, though, taking a vacation from my vacation before I head back to work on Wednesday.

Monday we woke up to rain and wind and rough waves.  It didn't look like a lot of oil was washing up, though.  We had planned on going to the pool one last time Monday morning before we left, but even though the rain stopped early it was still pretty windy.

We packed up and went to Tacky Jack's (or Wacky Jack's as Matt called it) for brunch.
This is where President Obama went a couple of weeks ago during his visit to the Gulf Coast.....but we still went there anyway.
This isn't a good picture, even for a camera phone, but this is what Betty and I got - shrimp and grits.  It was really good!
Matt and McKenzie shared a pancake with strawberries and whipped cream.  Yes, that's one pancake!

We stopped for a late lunch in Hattiesburg at the Olive Garden.  Our final stops on our pig out tour were in Jackson at the Marble Slab Creamery for ice cream and shakes and then at Krispy Kreme for a dozen donuts for our breakfast this morning.

We had a great time on our vacation - probably our best beach vacation yet - in spite of the oil!
