Dauphin Island, my New Idea of Paradise

We’ve been back from vacation for well over a month now and I’m really late on getting these pictures up, but I feel like I need to share them anyway because we absolutely LOVED this place!  Dauphin Island, AL is my new idea of paradise…spent an entire week with my family in a beautiful house with lots of time spent sitting on the beach, hunting for seashells, cooking, flying kites, fishing, playing bocce and relaxing…all in honor of my grandmothers 80th Birthday!  Hopefully we will get back there again some day.

Beautiful house on the gulf!
