Orange Beach Trippy Trip Trip trip!!

Thank you Lord for all the wonderful moments of this trip.
The fun to look at hotel:

(Drinking a cup of coffee and looking at our view- I almost thought the rapture had come. Oh wait- that was May 21st!)
The fun to be with people that I love:

The manifestations of brave men and women You created who were determined to protect our freedoms:

The nature You made:

And thankful for the U.S.S. Alabama's concession stand nachos- probably my most fave food of the trip. Not saying the other food wasn't delicious there were standouts: The Original Oyster House's Choc. Chip Peanut Butter Pie, the Shed's ribs, etc. But there were also moments of gluttony that I can't discuss at this time. Spoiler alert! It has to do with a pig's bottom!

I could not shake the feeling of guilt this whole trip. It was so wonderful to be with my family and not in a doctor(s)' office, but I'm so very used to the latter. A little too used to it. So with the Lord's help I'm learning how to remain calm. Kind feel like I'm in the Witness Protection Program a little bit. Going from drama and trauma to "oh drats! I'm late for a picnic!!" A new normal indeed.
