HI YALL!!!!!

So I know ya'll have been wondering where is Valarie? You have probably spent your nights lying sleeplessly wondering where I'm at. Well we have taken a little vacation down to The Grand Marriott in Point Clear, AL. Now I am a beach girl, I love love love the beach, but ya'll I have found another love. This place is the BOMB.com! I never thought I would like staying somewhere that was on the Bay, but this is awesome!!!!

I am going to just take you on a short tour and then later I will go into more about this place. There is just so much to tell about. If you ever get a chance to go here, you NEEEEED to come here. Its the ultimate in relaxation with kids in tow. Just to give you a little sense of how it is here. As I am typing this I am sitting here looking out into the bay, listening to the seagulls and pelicans, and watching the kids fish off the pier and watching them go hunt for hermit crabs and sea glass. This is the view from our room.

Lets go on the tour now......

And I have decided that when Logan retires, that we are moving down here. This house is unbelievable! I am in love! Just imagine oak trees covered in Spanish moss, large screened in porch overlooking the bay. If you live in this house, can I be your friend? Will you invite me over??

Tomorrow Syd and I are going to do something very very special. We get to go and meet a very special person. More on that tomorrow!

I am GREEN with ENVY. Ahem.

It IS such a beautiful place. I had the pleasure of eating Thanksgiving lunch their one year with my entire Greek family, who lives in that area. It was SO delicious and the view was spectacular.

Let me think....if I leave my house right now.....I'll see you in 4 hours! :-)

Your photos are beautiful. I really miss living there. I grew up in Mobile so it was right there where you are, just on the other side. Then living in Destin area was just wonderful. I really like the water and sunsets and all. I really like the mountains and actually having fall here, though. I am inhaling deeply, sniffing your photos, trying to smell the bay- could you move that fish, please. Thanks.

Rhea said...
