|2) By 7:00 in the morning, the sun was already hot because there was no breeze.|
|3) No breeze in Portage Creek (IntraCoastal Waterway) either. The air was so sultry that sweat was pouring off me. That is the Foley Beach Express bridge.|
|4) A structure rises in the air at Lulus and I have no idea what it is for. Anyone know? |
|5) The IntraCoastal Waterway (ICW) can get busy with traffic.|
|6) On the south side of the ICW, under the bridge, is Canal Park which does have a boat launch. The park has lighting and porta-potty.|
|7) A great blue heron gracefully dries out its wings.|
|8) This helicopter was doing circles around boats while flying surprising low and apparently it does so to take photos of boats. (www.boatpix.com)|
|9) This is Orange Beach Canoe Trail - Cypress Avenue site #2.|
