Birds and bi-planes

Before dawn we left our hotel in Orange Beach and headed down the road to Fort Morgan, an old Civil War fort now in ruins. We pulled of the road and walked through the woods to a clearing where a bird-banding tent was set up. The place was buzzing with passionate birders.

The Gulf bounces back

Ruby red shrimp, hot pink sunsets, sugary white sand beaches, dolphins swimming alongside our boat, bird-banding and fishing in the Gulf of Mexico were highlights of my recent trip to Orange Beach and adjacent Gulf Shores, Ala.

If you look closely, you'll notice that each square of Mary Drabik's quilt features an animal - a wolf or bald eagle, moose, cats, bats, monkeys, dogs, birds, rabbits, a rooster from a French piece of cloth and even mosquitoes - humorously sewn in.

A veterans' Christmas in Branson

I knew before I visited that Branson is the city of shows. But what took me by surprise was all the veterans walking around in their caps and jackets with military insignias and the acknowledgment they received at every show and attraction. I wondered why and kept asking about it.
