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!

Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge

No ones likes to stay in on a Friday, but it sort of sucks when you do not have a lot of money to spend. Here we go again, on another unexpected drive to who knows where. John and I ended up driving south again.

We saw a lot  of trees, flat land, and hay bales, which I don’t mind. I love looking at that sort of stuff. We ended up at the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge. If you follow along with this series you are probably going to see a lot outdoors pictures. We love hiking and love anything to do with water!

We drove most of the way down the gravel dipped road and on the way back stopped off to the side. There are a couple of spots that are kind like beachy areas. We saw a couple of turtles and there were tons and tons of water snails! Okay what you are going to learn with me, is that I love critters!
