We drove a whole 48 miles yesterday to Summerdale, AL and the Escapees Rainbow Plantation, our first time there. It’s a no frills kind of place, parking just on the grass, but they have full hookups and allow you to wash your vehicles. After a month on Pensacola Beach, the car and LD were covered with salt spray, so they desperately needed to be washed.
It is quite impressive! A group of volunteer train buffs, the Caboose Club, designed and laid out the display over the course of two years. They did an excellent job building this 1950’s “community” around the model trains.
The detail was amazing, like the traveling circus.
And a fire being extinguished. It’s definitely worth seeing if you’re in the area, and it’s free.
We also went to the Tanger Outlet Mall, just south of Foley. When we lived in Pensacola we shopped there a couple times a year. It’s a huge mall, and we usually find some good bargains. Spent a total of $44 and each of us got a pair of jeans, I got a pair of shorts, and Jim bought a jacket. Not bad.
Tomorrow we’re planning another short drive to Ocean Springs, MS. It feels good to be back on the road.
