Exploring Fairhope

Went exploring today. Our campground in Summerdale is a half-hour or so east of Mobile Bay. Right on the bay is the town of Fairhope. Once a sleepy Alabama fishing town, it has become a bustling arts/retirement community with galleries, restaurants, a long fishing pier and beautiful streets lined with flowers that bloom in January–ridiculous!

As we were driving around, we crossed a small bridge that spanned a small body of water. The sign at the end of the bridge named this body of water–FLY CREEK.

A bit further along was another sign–for the FLY CREEK CAFÉ, “Find Your Happy Place”. We stopped for a mid-afternoon lunch, how could we not? It’s also a marina, so, we had a delicious lunch, with a great view. Boats on the water in January–ridiculous!

I had to show the waitress my driver’s license to prove we were from Fly Creek, NY. Ah, it’s great to be carded again.
