Seafood Festival

Last weekend we were at the beach for the Seafood Festival! It's such a fun time to be at the beach!! Good food, good friends and good music!!! There is one downside.....the traffic!!
We took our good friends, Mary Sue and Phil Lindsey to the beach and showed them our condo. We had asked Mary Sue to paint for us a sign with our name for our condo.....Gone Coastal!! And it was beautiful and now hangs in the condo.
We first stopped at LuLu's for lunch! It's such a fun place for everyone! They were getting their haunted house ready for Halloween. We then hung out at the condo for a little bit and shortly headed out to the Seafood Festival on Friday night. We visited all the booths and bought a few things and then headed for the seafood to try a couple of goodies. And to round out the evening we went to the Swinging Medallions concert and what a blast!!! They played all of their oldies from the past but the guys have added some new songs to appeal to the younger crowd and wow did this do a great job!!
Saturday we hung out at the beach for a couple of hours and it is just beautiful at Gulf Shores in October.....plenty warm enough to lay out at the beach, although the water is a tad cool! We also attended our condo homeowners association meeting for the quarter and then headed back to the festival for another round of seafood, shopping, and music!!! We tried to eat some of the goodies we had missed the day before and of course had to try the homemade ice cream, which is  always delicious!!! And watched an interesting band called Superhero's that all dressed as superheros, but played some really good rock-n-roll!! They were fun to watch also! They had two superhero pole dancers at one point.....very interesting! (sorry I didn't photos of them....wasn't fast enough with the phone!)
Just had lots of fun and love all the time I get to spend at the beach!!! It was so great seeing Mary Sue and Phil too!!!
