Rain, Rain Go Away

Well we made it to Ft. Walton but we have not seen any sun since!

My in-laws have a friend back in Ireland who had a brother who was a priest. Father Sean passed away last year. (God rest his soul as they say.)

Father Sean worked in San Antonio but retired in Ft Walton Beach. His apartment has been empty for months, so his sister suggested we come stay here. The lovely widow who lives down the hall got the place ready for us and had stopped by to be sure we have everything we need.

So far the only thing missing is the sun! Yesterday we went to the outlet malls in Destin after getting wet on our 5 minute trip to the beach. We stopped at Walmart on the way back to the apartment to pick up dinner, "Marley and Me"and to take cheesy pictures.

It is overcast today, but thankfully the rain seems to have stopped. There is actually some flooding in the area. I am hearing rumors of a trip to Alabama. I still don't get it, but I love them so I'll go along with it!

You're such a good sport! I hope it gets sunny fast:)

Maybe going to Alabama for the Irish is like some American's going to Ireland and being disappointed that there are no leprechauns or pots of gold. Maybe Alabama represents what they believe the American South to be. If this is true, i hope you set them straight!
