My husband and I are spending our first January along the Gulf Coast. We are in Foley, Alabama. We have rented a condo called Royal Palms with my sister and her husband. It is a pretty littly pink condo on the beautiful white sand. We are pretty excited. Warmer weather than Michigan, good food homemade and restaurant, heated pool, hot tub, Ocean views everyday, walks on the beach, good books, relatives nearby, fun shopping, good times with my sister and husband, and I brought my clay and hand stitch bears. No heavy coats, scarves, hats, snow, scrapping, icy roads or shoveling. Who could ask for anything more?
