Summer Vacation – Last Little Bit

13 Aug

Here are the rest of the photos from our vacations to Gulfshores, Alabama, although these photos were taken two totally different places!

We went to Fairhope, just north of Gulf Shores, for an afternoon and found this fun place called Dr. Music. I had taken a picture of the outside of the store a few years back, but had never gone inside.

To my surprise it wasn’t just records and music as I had thought! They also had used books, and vintage suitcases, typewriters, radios, and more things I can’t remember.

Definitely a fun place to look around and next door there is a yarn store with this cute cat chilling in the window.

On the way home from Alabama, Sean and I decided to stop in Covington, Louisiana, to visit the final resting place of Walker Percy. This might sound a little morbid, but Percy is one of Sean’s favorite authors.

Percy is buried at Saint Joseph Abbey cemetery. The abbey and grounds are beautiful, with many large old oak trees.

It was a wonderful end to our vacation.

    Why yes, that is a Star Wars t-shirt I’m wearing at Dr. Percy’s grave.
