More Good Times in the South

This last weekend started very well! I went out to Foley to spend the evening with the Martin Family. The drive to Foley is about a 45 minute drive from my apartment. The drive out to there is very nice. There are is a lot of trees and green that makes it look very nice.

After I met James' wife and kids at his house. He took the time to give me the tour of his garden that he is very proud of. He has a lot of time into it and the outcome looks amazing. It has given me a respect for the effort that good landscaping can do for your yard.

We went to dinner over by Orange Beach at a location called Calypso Joe's. It was a great little Caribbean style grill. I had the fried shrimp and fries. They were absolutely delicious. We sat outside at the restaurant right in front of the docks they are next to. They also had this hilarious (in my opinion) thing for the kids. Every half hour or so, they would do a crab race. I could not get the video to load up. =( Let me know if you wanna see it an I can email it to you.

After the dinner we drove around the town. We first went to the beach. I tried to get some pictures of the Gulf, and this was the best one. I was able to put my feet into the Gulf!

After the beach we drove over to the recreation center that his family would go to play Tennis. It was a very location. They also had some little league travel team playoff happening at the center. It was fun.

The rest of the weekend was very low-key. Not much on Saturday or Sunday except computer and cleaning up the B-pad. =)

This week at work has been great so far. I am still working on the same project and really getting to dig into some very interesting information. The one little hiccup was this morning with 2 of the air conditioning units got knocked out from the thunderstorm that rolled through yesterday.

It was really nasty, but not as loud a couple of weeks ago. It had a lot more constant lightning and thunder. Of course, it was pouring like crazy.

All in all, still really enjoying my time out here. I found this picture on the stupid app that I have on my iPhone. It reminded me of Chrisine. =) ... Miss you!!!
