Winter Beach Photos

March 1, 2013


Gulf Shores Alabama is on the south end of Baldwin County and about a 30 minute to an hour drive from Fairhope, depending on how fast you drive, how many tourists are on the road, and how long you stop to shop at the Outlet Mall.
 The locals know that winter is one of the best times to stroll along the Gulf. (And please don’t call it an Ocean. It’s the GULF of Mexico) Parking is easy, no frisbees hitting you in the head, and no sunburned tourists screaming “SHARK! SHARK! Oh wait, it’s just a dolphin. – DOLPHIN! DOLPHIN!!!”

And for all my wonderful readers who don’t live in this area, yes,
our sand really is this white.
That’s why when I see your photographs of snow, I automatically think it’s sand!
Lifeguard station #2.
All’s calm for now.
Just give it a few months.

  2. Now this is my kind of winter. I would love it if you would share this beautiful post at our WIW Linky Party. It is still open. I hope you can join us!


  3. So, so, so jealous. White sands, sun…did you see my post from a couple of weeks ago? My two teenagers were so cold their cheeks were blue!! Thank you for showing what a clean, crisp white beach can look like. I can only dream. Take care. Chel x

  4. I love seeing your white sand beach, ours has gotten so dark and coarse over the years with dredging and storms. I’d love to come visit the gulf again sometime. It’s been years and years. Thanks for sharing your serene images.

  5. My beach, Lake Michigan is still frozen and covered in snow, so sad. I’m waiting for summer too, no sharks and no salt. Lake Michigan unsalted! Your beach looks very pretty too. Laura

  6. Love these pictures. Thanks for visiting my blog! I replied back to you over there but never quite know if people see those replies or not. I’m enjoying learning more about Fair Hope (I’ve been, but only once so far!) here on your site.
