As we wave goodbye to the tropical system named Isaac that brushed by
our shores in Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Perdido Key,
we welcome the fair weather that followed. We are open for vacation rental
business 24/7, and local restaurants, retail shops and amusements are
also open to welcome our Labor Day visitors to the beach.
Today we revisited the same gulf-front locations from earlier in the week
during the storm threat to see the dramatic difference once the winds and
storm surge subsided. Now enjoyable beach weather is in store for the
holiday and the only remnant of Isaac is rough surf prohibiting actual gulf
swimming. The added benefit of the high waves is lots more large shells
on the beach than usual.
Some things only happen once in a blue moon (which we will have tonight)
and we have a mystery ship on the Fort Morgan peninsula that reappears
only occasionally when certain tropical weather systems uncover it from
its sandy hiding place. So Isaac followed the pattern of discovery and
unearthed the ship - and two other times the ship surfaced after "I"-named
storms (2008 Hurricane Ike & 2004 Hurricane Ivan). There appears to be a
strange 4-year I-storm pattern.
Come to our coast and uncover a relaxing holiday weekend where you can
create your own blue moon tribute to less labor and more fun!
