The End of the Off Season

As the month of March comes to an end, so does the racing off season. We made the most of our last few days in Gulf Shores. We spent one day at the Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola Air Station. This museum is one of the best flight museums I’ve been to. The do a… Continue Reading

Who Knew??

From New Orleans, we drove 240 miles to Gulf Shores, Alabama. We have never been here before and my experience with the Gulf has been the dirty waters off of Texas, or the pristine beaches of Clearwater Florida. The coast of Alabama is very close to that of Clearwater. This place has big wide sugar… Continue Reading

Driving into Cajun Country

Casino Stopover

The location we stayed at in Phoenix lent itself to great viewing of the rare Blue Blood Moon and eclipse. We just had to get up at 5 in the morning to catch it. It was neat watching the eclipse happen then as it reappeared, it turned color.  We sat outside in the early morning… Continue Reading
