04 Oct '13 - 707 W, 29 I Return to Orange Beach - The Beach


Entry Author: sila
Category: Family Pics
Used tags: , , , ,


Contrary to popular belief, the beach in Orange Beach, AL is actually not orange. In fact, the sand was beautiful, white, fine sand. Wheee! We loved it so much when we went there in April that we decided to go back there for a longer almost week-long vacation there in September. At the time of this entry, it has been almost a month since we were there, but given my track record it's a wonder it's only been delayed a few weeks. Hehe

The kids playing on the beach

We chose to go after the Labor Day weekend, so not only was it fairly quiet, and we had the beach mostly to ourselves, but it was still hot and summery. And with off-season rates, well, it was icing on the cake.

We drove down to Alabama in a 2-day road trip (each way), arriving on Sunday September 8th and leaving on Saturday September 14th. Most of the days went like this: wake up, breakfast, beach, pool, room (shower/lunch/naptime), pool, shower, dinner, bedtime. It was a lovely time. Rather than go day by day, I've decided to group the pictures in three entries - one for pictures on the beach, one for pictures in the pool, and one for miscellaneous photos (including fun at breakfast and our hike on the Backcountry Trail). So for this first one, here are all of our fun beach pictures. As always, please mouse over the pictures for captions.

Filling buckets with sand is serious business

Pour from this bucket to that bucket

Papa and Yaya swimming together

The weather was perfect and the water temperature was Malaysia-esque. Happy Sila! :-)

More fun to fill buckets by hand than by shovel

Seashells with holes in them - to make necklaces

Vin and Adik and the sandcastles (before GodzillAdik comes along to destroy destroy destroy Tokyo)

Playing nicely together

Adik gets water in the watering can

What are they all looking at?

Adik intensely enjoys playing with sand

Adik went that way Mama

Adik carries buckets of water while Papa monitors

I love the matching outfits and hats on father and son. :-) A big thanks to Eliza for Adik's swim outfit. It's perfect!

Diva sunglasses and sand starfishes

Red for Yaya (with sand), Blue for Adik (he wants more water in it)

Mama, you're interrupting. I'm busy playing

Yaya pretending to be a seagull (her name is Seagulla)

Yaya loved the water

She continues to play, oblivious of what Adik is up to behind her

Adik wants more water in his bucket

More of Yaya in the surf

This next set of photos were taken when Yaya and I went for a walk on the beach at about sunset. It was on our last evening there, and Adik explicitly said that he did not want to go to the pool that evening:

Walk or swim?

Making footprints in the sand

Playing with sand

Making friends with an actual seagull

Fun, fun, fun!

I think she enjoyed our walk

We are hopefully now better prepared for winter, and will warm ourselves with the memory of the lovely (and hot) time we had at the beach.

The beautiful view from the parking garage

And dream of seagulls:

Seagulla's inspiration

Check out our pool pictures and our miscellaneous pictures as well. :-)

The shot of Yaya and the seagull is priceless.
