The beach is cool but beautiful. We are having a great time. This is the first time in many years I have stayed in Orange Beach. The water is cold but clear and we have found several great seashells. We had a photo shoot tonight for Christmas cards so I hope we got a good one! Sofia has told me several times that she loves the beach so that makes me happy we came here for vacation. We will be here until Friday and then we will head up to Birmingham for the Iron Bowl!
