A Grand Escape


After last week's commencement festivities, we slipped away to one of our favorite summertime destinations, The Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Ala. After a busy month of concerts, banquets, and other end-of-year activities, I was eager to spend some unhurried time with our little family -- especially our grown-up grad who will be leaving for college all too soon.





Our rooms in the newly renovated Marina House afforded tranquil views of the seaside, filtered through the branches of gorgeous live oaks.





Watching other guests pass by on their bicycles made me even more eager to tour the area on two wheels. I feel like a kid again gliding around the property on a beach cruiser!





We also admired the boats ...





dipped our toes in the sand ...





played in the surf ...





enjoyed friendly competition ...





strolled through the gardens ...





indulged in delicious fare ...





and made many more Grand memories.


I will share the bounty of blooms we encountered next week!
