    In Oct. every year there are boat races. These boat cost between $300K and $1.5 million dollars. One guy told me it costs $2 million a year to race.
    The boats range from 800 to 1500 HP and can reach speed of 115 MPH. The boats were in the parking lot just west of Orange Beach where the public parking lot for the beach is located.

    Walk the Beach

    It was too windy to really enjoy the water so we decided to take a long walk on the beach. From where we parked, it was about a 1 mile walk to the beach pavillion where there was a boat show (the races were postponed due to wind). Walking barefoot with the waves crashing over your legs..........

    Had to watch out for the jelly fish being washed up on the shore though.

    Sail Wild Hearts

    The best day of my trip was spent out on the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico sailing on Wild Hearts catamaran. The crew was lively and had great attitudes. We all tried paddle boarding for the first time....for FREE. We enjoyed watching the sunset and the dolphins over a bottle of wine, free appetizers and good music. Talk about relaxation! Such a great time I'm working with Wild Hearts to be married on board in the spring!!!! Romance, sunset, and a soft gulf breeze.....
