Holidays at the Shore

Turkey at the beach? Why not? I spent the day after Thanksgiving at the beach with my relatives who had rented a beautiful, gulf front condominium at Grand Pointe in Orange Beach, Alabama. The two boys loved tossing a football on the beach and searching for shells. The gulf water was a little too cold for swimming but they enjoyed that activity at the indoor pool. My mother was able to spend quality time with her great-grandchildren on the sunny balcony overlooking the beach.

A big bonus for this particular condo is the close proximity to the pass where boat traffic from the bay to the gulf and back can be observed. It is a great treat to watch the charter boats leave for the day and return in the afternoon with their big catch. Lots of pleasure boats also travel through this narrow pass to open gulf waters.
Boating in general along our Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast is so very popular for skiing and both inshore, back bay and deep-sea fishing. A very popular attraction all year are the dolphin cruises provided several charters. The America III, a 73 ft. glass bottom boat will be the host for our FREE Winter Guest dolphin cruises in February provided exclusively for Meyer Real Estate guests.
