The Redneck Riviera
These pics may or may not impress you, but they are from a trip I took with my (then) Lovely Fiance's family to Gulf Shores, Alabama. That was a wonderful trip and these photos bring back strong emotions for me.
Lovely Fiance has been Lovely Wife now for almost 23 years, and from the moment I met her parents and sister, I was just part of the family, including vacations.
Every man should be so blessed.
The panhandle of Florida and this tip of Alabama where these slides were shot is called the "Redneck Riviera" because it's an incredibly beautiful area where most tourists are plain old folks from The South, or the southeastern U.S.
These were taken in 1983, the top one soon after the sunrise, and the bottom one just before sunrise one morning.
Taken with my old buddy, my Canon AE-1 on Kodachrome 64.
