Writing affords me the invaluable opportunity to meet passionate people, explore interesting places and share little-known stories with the world. I love what I do, and I trust you will too.

Flashlight, Net, Fun! Adventures in crabbing and how you can join in on the fun!

Crabbing is a celebrated coastal pastime. The pristine waters of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach provide an ideal habitat for a variety of crabs, lending themselves to this longstanding summer night tradition. Year after year, my wife and I make sure to take the family to the beach for a fun crabbing session during our annual summer vacation on the Gulf Coast.

Day-Trip! 6 Family-fun activities for off the beach fun!

Over the years, I can recall quite a few times when my family and I have been beach bound, only to be thwarted by unexpected rainfall. If you’ve ever been there, then you know that an unanticipated shower can dampen the day, especially when you’ve donned your sunscreen, packed your beach bag and are ready and raring to go.

The Great Egg Hunt: Your guide to Easter activities in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach

I love Easter. A time for bright pastels and chocolate bunnies, Easter has always been an important time to my family. Each year, we start with Sunday morning services, and then everyone gathers for Easter brunch and the family egg hunt. I used to paint hardboiled eggs with my children; now I paint with the help of my grandchildren.

Wet n’ Wild Summer Camps

Anyone with school-aged children knows that the countdown has officially begun.

Just two months of pure, unadulterated fun – unless, of course, there’s nothing to do.
