Beach Interlude 

At home, over the past few days a new season was unfurling its riches, but I was at Orange Beach, near Gulf Shores. The weather was warm and breezy, and the sunsets were lovely. It was a great way to spend a few days in February, a pleasant interlude between winter and spring. Here are a few photos taken while I was playing hooky from gardening duties.

Some views of Ono Island taken from the condo we rented:

Late afternoon was the perfect time to relax on the beach, to view the waves, and to take walks as the sun began to set:

I came home rejuvenated and ready to get to work. The garden awaits!

Beautiful scenery, Deb. I'm glad you got a nice, relaxing break. I hope it was warm too. I'm actually shivering from the cold here and that's not something that happens often.

It is so nice to have a place like that to escape to without driving too far. We always went to the beach in October.

That last photo is a beauty!

We just got back from a winter getaway too - down to South FL to visit family.

It was nice to get away and thaw out -- although to be honest, it was actually already a little *too* hot down there for my liking (highs in the mid-50s).

Well, now that we're back in Tennessee, I don't think we have to worry about 'too hot' for a while. ;-)

Oh, that does look like a lovely place to relax and rejuvenate. My sister and her husband and in-laws used to spring break at Gulf Shores. I've never been there, but you've convinced me to check it out. Your sky pictures are priceless!

What a gorgeous place; I definitely feel I need a break somewhere warm!

I love the beach in winter. I have never been to that part of the country. Maybe some day.

A Winter break sounds just perfect for me at the moment. Gorgeous pictures.

Your photos are beautiful and it looks like a wonderful getaway. P.S. I loved reading your comment on my blog and that we followed a similar journey. Who would have know that a movie, Julie and Julia could change a life?!

Beautiful pictures of the ocean and sky! February is a great time to go to the beach. You reminded me that we didn't go last year and we're only 2 hours away.
