Chasing Christmas Day 1

Well we are off on our quest for Christmas.  We have decided that we must spend this Christmas on a white sand beach somewhere, so we have picked Magnolia Beach in Texas.  The beaches are made of crushed shells so they get really hard and you can park on them apparently, so we want to do that.  We figure it will take us 3 traveling days to get there so today is Day 1.

Destin Fl to Pearlington Mississipi 
We stopped along the way at a place called the Oasis somewhere in Alabama.  It was a really neat truck stop and visitor center.  Here are some random pictures of the place.

The derailed diner looks like a train crash on the outside
We were in 3 states today.  Alabama is only 60 miles wide on the south side where we passed through.

We went through another tunnel today near Mobile Alabama.  It was not as bad as the Chesapeake tunnel we went through this year because it was all one way traffic instead of clicking mirrors of oncoming traffic.

Today we got a picture of our Grand daughter Abby with a reindeer mask on.  That sweet face gave us a boost in the Christmas spirit department.  Thanks Abby.  I think we should ask all our grand kids to help us get in the Christmas spirit by sending us Christmas pictures.  HELP GUYS!!!!!  We will do a Christmas blog using all the pictures we get.

Abby the red nose reindeer.
Good night and Merry Christmas everyone.
