We then went to the Grand Hotel at Point Clear just south of Fairhope, Alabama where our boat is located. This is a gated Mariott resort property. I have heard that this is where Jimmy Buffett stays when he is in the area. It is a beautiful, old facility on Mobile Bay. We sat on the veranda in cushioned wicker chairs and enjoyed a mint julep in the sunshine. It doesn't get any better than this.
When we were sailing with the Perdues in the British Virgin Islands years ago, Tracy and I would go to shore occasionally to go shopping. Well, after spending some time shopping, we would stop in a fun open air bar for a drink. And of course, that is always where Richard and Dave would find us. So from then on, they would always tease us about our "shopping".
So it was fun to go "shopping" with my good friend, Tracy, again.
