Photos from the coast

It’s the recurring dilema of the travel writer: When you spend a few days touring a destination, you always see and experience much more than you will actually be able to write about, or even to blog about.  So before I pack my bags and prepare to head to the airport tomorrow morning, here are some of my favorite photos from other parts of the trip that haven’t appeared in the blog yet.

The outdoor pool at The Beach Club.


A riverside scene in the peaceful small community of Magnolia Springs.


One of several great shots from a dolphin-watching cruise in the Gulf.


Fort Morgan — a Civil War-era fortress across the bay from Mobile.


The Wharf in Orange Beach has a large Ferris wheel, in addition to dozens of shops and restaurants.


Sunset at Gulf State Park, which features the longest pier on the Gulf Coast.


A glass-blowing demonstration in the Hot Shop at Orange Beach Arts Center.
