There is no such place as Greenbow, Alabama

I know, I hope this isn't as devastating to you as it was to me. But, it's true. There is no Greenbow, Alabama. Forrest Gump was filmed in South Carolina. South. Carolina.

However, a place that does exist is Foley, AL which is quite close to the more well known Gulf Shores, AL. We visited my dad and step-mom this weekend and stayed at their 'glamping' resort. I am designating it as 'glamping' because attached to their parking slip for their GIANT RV is a finished 'casita' which has a full bath, fold out sofa-bed, a refrigerator and stocked cabinet. In addition to the casita, there is a finished porch which has a fire place and a grill with a table and fire rock centerpiece thing. It is definitely glamping, there is no roughin' it in their neck of the woods in South Alabama.

While we were there, we got to put our toes in the sand and picked up some more provisions for The Trip. We also gorged ourselves on delicious seafood and had a nice visit with my family. It is nice to see how happy they are and how much they are enjoying their current locale. They have decided that Alabama is not warm enough for the winter months and will be heading down to Florida. I am trying to convince them to visit Harry Potter world in Orlando so they can give us a recommendation when we return. However, I can't imagine that diagon alley could disappoint and if someone told me that it did, I would still probably have to see for myself.


  1. Love. And agree about Diagon Alley.

    1. You and Josh should come meet us there and we could drink butterbeer together!
