This year the weekend before 4th of July we were in Baton Rouge for Rob’s cousin’s wedding reception. When we were planning it, we were trying to figure out how we could combine that trip with a short getaway for the 4th. We decided the most logical thing to do would be to stop in Gulf Shores for a few days.
Rob and I aren’t really beach people so a couple days at the beach is plenty. We enjoyed just relaxing at the condo that was just a short walk to the beach. We stayed at Gulf Shores Plantation.
We purchased several pounds of shrimp in Baton Rouge and had a pre-planned menu so we had everything we needed to cook all our meals at the condo.
The kids enjoyed looking for seashells as there were some really awesome ones coming up on the shore as well as trying to catch fish with a net. There were a good deal of fish swimming close to shore.
