YES. Alabama has beaches!

Several of our Australian friends did not know this. After 3 days visiting Orange Beach and Gulf Shores we can confirm there is a beautiful 32 mile coastline of white sandy beaches. Would like to come back with a group of friends and stay in one of these beach houses. Who's coming? #AlBeachBlogger

Yes or No?

The Rollin Thunder at Owa amusement park in Alabama is said to be the longest in the US with an 800 ft track.

It's very similar to Rip Ride Rocket at Universal.

Great fun but it had one of the scariest beginnings for me - a 15 secs slow vertical crawl. #AlBeachBlogger

Good morning from Orange Beach, Alabama.

New Orleans trip

Who wants to visit the French Quarter in New Orleans?

We loved taking a stroll and seeing the stunning architecture and balconies with intricate ironwork, beautiful gardens, lamp posts, and musicians busking.
Of course there is the party vibe of Bourbon Street, but we preferred the more family friendly Royal Street with its shops, cafes, courtyards, art galleries, and restaurants. This is what we saw.

Have you ever seen an Alligator in the wild?

What about 2 cute baby gators like these? When we knew we were coming to Louisiana and New Orleans, a swamp tour was on our list of things we wanted to do with our kids, because that's one of the things LA is known for right!
On Wednesday we did a tour with Cajun Encounters Tour Company and spotted these two just hanging on the bank, plus other gators, wild pigs, tree snakes and cool swamp landscape. We've seen plenty of crocs in the wild in Australia before, but not gators.

Who loves eating breakfast outside in a cute courtyard?

Yesterday in New Orleans we enjoyed a delicious breaky at Brennan's Restaurant in the French Quarter in this gorgeous courtyard that made us feel like we were in Paris.
We had a yummy meal of: crayfish omelettes, french toast, New Orleans style coffee, and their famous bananas foster which is original to them and includes; bananas, rum, cinnamon and brown sugar - it is cooked in front of you and is YUM!!! It is the most-ordered item on Brennan's menu. Put this restaurant on your dining list for NOLA...
