Fairhope Arts & Crafts

On Saturday morning we got up and decided to go across the bay to Fairhope, AL for the annual Arts & Crafts festival. There was a lot going on this weekend and the weather was perfect. Mobile held the Azalea Trail run in downtown and huge crowds gathered to cheer on the runners.

We made it to Fairhope and parked by some beautiful flowers. Fairhope is a cute little colony town and they plant flowers all over their city. Fairhope is located on Mobile Bay and Fairhope pier is one of the main attractions. Downtown is full of cute little shops and this was the setting for the festival. We ended up not buying anything but we had a great time. When we left we traveled down the street to the pier and enjoyed the view for a while and then went a little further down to Pelican Point to see the damage from Hurricane Ivan. Pelican Point bar is another local landmark to a lot of people. It sustained a good bit of damage in the hurricane and from the looks of things I don't know if they will ever open again or not. It doesn't look like anything has been done in the way of repairs and it has been over six months since the storm.

We made it back to Mobile about 3:00pm and I was really tired from all of the walking. Luke laid down and took a nap and I did a few things on the computer. That evening we went to Blu Bistro to check out the new menu and then headed home to watch movies.
