On November 19th, Charlie, Joyce, Pam, Ernie, Wayne and I drove to the lovely town of Fairhope, Alabama. It's along the eastern shore of Mobile Bay.
Plain ole good luck brought us to town this day. Wet happened to be here on day of the city's annual tree lighting to kick off the Christmas season.
|Clockwise: Joyce, Charlie, Wayne, Lexie and Ozzie (in the stroller), me and Ernie.|
Pam is the photographer. Thank you, Pam.
|Tourist extraordinaire, Joyce. She never tires of being a tourist and brings out the best in me.|
|More selfie practice as evidenced by my tongue sticking out. Trying hard to get it right.|
Yes, we were photobombed by the guy in sunglasses back there.
|First to the balcony, Wayne and I proved we could get two little dogs in a stroller up the steps for a bird's eye view.|
|Waving goodbye to the friends we left on the balcony.|

Then came the magical hour (I forgot what time) and lighted trees were everywhere. Tiny bubbles were blown into the lighted night sky. It resembled snow... well... kind of anyway.
|Wayne and me. Thanks for the photo, Pam.|
