Peach Park

My husband (John) and I headed down 65 South, we were unsure of where we were going. We just decided we needed to explore south of Alabaster. So we remembered we were only 30 minutes away from Peach Park.

Okay, Peach Park  is this cute little tourist stop, now I am not sure if it started as one, but I always stopped here with my family coming back from the beach when I was younger. So I feel like it is sort of a tradition. You must stop here if you are coming through Alabama. Now, back to what Peach Park is, it is a restaurant, it has a gift shop, and little farmers market in side of it! If you go, make sure to get some peach ice cream!

“What is it like to be an expat?”

Where do I even begin?

Being an expat, an immigrant living in a foreign country, is basically an emotional rollercoaster. Some days are incredible, filled with experiences I could have never had living back in Canada. Things like exploring historic English villages, climbing nearby mountains in Wales or seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London. I am truly lucky!adventures-and-naps

The first thing we did when we arrived to the area was check in to the Baymont Inn Savannah South. Then after that we headed to the beach, Tybee Island to be exact. This is a pretty cool place! There is a lighthouse you can go up in, but we made it too late to visit inside.

I will never not be amazed by our history!

 

Moundville Archaeological Park is a 300 acre park where the Mississippian Indians, also known as Moundville people, used to live. My husband and I arrived around 10:40 a.m. As you are driving in, the visitor center is to your right. It’s only $8 for adults. They also have a 12 minute informative video to watch. John and I didn’t watch it, but I recommend it. Why not I say?!
