One of the good things about vacation is the opportunity for all of us to sit and have breakfast together without the need to rush anywhere. It is always a fun time. The following is a compilation of photos taken at breakfast (on different days, obviously) in Orange Beach:

Adik learnt that Yaya does not want to eat peanut butter and starts to tease her with it:

One of the days we were there, we decided to hike the Backcountry Trail. It was too windy to enjoy the morning at the beach so we figured we would go hiking and then go out to lunch at Cosmo’s (our very favourite restaurant in Orange Beach):

Also, check out the outfit Yaya chose for the walk. We told her perhaps the pink boots might not be the best option but what can you do with an intractable five-year-old’s wardrobe choices?

Now don’t forget that we are in a swamp:

After a lovely walk, we turned around, walked back to our car and headed off to lunch:

I need to learn to make that remoulade sauce. Oh my. I’m drooling just thinking of that sandwich! 🙂

Now for a couple of fun pictures in the room:

We had to wait after our beach/pool cycle one day for housekeeping to do their thing so we waited downstairs at the breakfast area.

And that it is it. The end of our vacation. Already dreaming of our next one.
