Safe Harbor

Beautiful Bon Secour Alabama was our destination on Tuesday afternoon. Located on Highway 10 in Baldwin County Alabama, it is known for its seafood. You will find the great restaurant Tin Top there as well as several seafood companies that will pack your chosen seafood for a ride home to enjoy later.


We always enjoy a meal at Tin Top. Yesterday was no different. We had a delicious appetizer of seafood stuffed mushrooms followed by Trigger Fish for Marvin and a Rib Eye for me. I like seafood but being raised on a beef cattle farm, I have to have some red meat every now and then.


The parking lot features crushed oyster shells.


Our Lady of Bon Secour Catholic Church.


St Peter's Episcopal Church. This little church reminds me of Father Tim's church in the Jan Karon Mitford Series.


Swift Elementary School...built in 1920 and still in use. There are some newer buildings but not as charming.


I love this little school house.


One last picture of Our Lady of Bon Secour. It was a beautiful clear day, if HOT!!

It's been 100 degrees here so it's better to be hot at the beach😄 Don't forget to eat at Lulu's! We saw dolphins one year while we were there. Papa Roccos is good too even if it looks like a dump😉, just get it to go. Have you been to the outlets yet? The Original Oyster House is great too, I can't wait to have some oysters. 4 days to go!😎

What a lovely place to stop and visit! Great photos, Arlene! So, what kind of seafood did you bring home? The Tin Top looks like a fabulous place to eat.

The high is only supposed to get to 87 today. Can you hear me squealing with delight?!!!
Hope you are relaxing to the fullest measure.

What a pretty little town and having good food makes it an 'A+'for sure.

Such a pretty little town, Arlene! I doubt I will ever get to Alabama so I enjoy your travelogue :) And what a gorgeous blue sky!

Hi Arlene, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the pictures of your "Beautiful Alabama." I have only been thru Alabama one time and we traveled North to South, and really didn't stop until we got to Daupin Island. I know it has since been hit by a hurricane or two. Alabama is such a beautiful state and the peaches are wonderful. Anyway, I need to take notes of all the wonderful places to visit, and the restaurants you enjoy. I love fish, so when we do travel South, I always look for good fresh fish. The Southern Hospitality is unbelievable. Thank you so much for sharing:)

Lovely photos and commentary, Arlene. It's always nice to see a place one hasn't been and to learn a bit about it.

36º up here this morning, and I don't think it got much above 70º all day. Nice and sunny though. Perfect fall weather!

That place is full of charm! I love the churches and the school. I agree on the one church looking like Mitford. Looks like you two are having a great week.
