We drove down to southern Alabama from Huntsville, stopping in Evergreen overnight because it was a long drive for one day. We stayed at a Passport America park for the discounted rate.
Then we chose to stay at a Resorts of Distinction (ROD) park. We need to use our memberships to help keep our costs down. We want to visit Pensacola, FL and also the Gulf Shores of Alabama.
As we drove through Alabama we saw lush green corn fields and lovely southern homes on large lots. It still is very humid and you can see the humidity hanging in the air on the highway ahead.
We visited the Foley Alabama Elks Lodge, which was of course, very friendly. The city of Foley had a large display of American flags, and they had flowers decorating the main street with hanging baskets and corner flower gardens.
At our resort, Styx River Resort, they had a little nature trail that went down to the Styx River and a lovely soft white sand beach. Like everywhere else in the area, we found Kudzu growing wild, taking over some of the landscape.
