Something to see on a Sunday drive AND the WINNER!!!

We took a drive out to the Gulf Coast on Sunday


and these were some of the neatest signs on one of the back roads. (and no, my camera wasn’t tilted!)


We were on an adventure to get ‘off the beaten path’


and see if we could get to the water!


I took this quickly as we drove by!

And here’s a quick pic of one of the places we found that was accessible to the water!


NOW…for the WINNER of the
