SWEET HOME ALABAMA

WE ARRIVED!
Bella Terra RV Resort
Foley, AL
The last couple of days we have been guests at the Class A Bella Terra RV Resort in Foley, AL.  Bella Terra has been named one of the Top Five RV Resorts in America by Good Sam RV Club, and it only takes a quick drive through to find out why.  If you're looking for upgrades to enhance your RV lifestyle, Bella Terra offers pergolas, gazebos, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, upgraded landscaping and casitas.

Orange Beach, AL
Welcome to the Emerald Coast 
Foley, AL is a few minutes from the beautiful Orange Beach and the Gulf Shores area and surprisingly close to more than 300 restaurants.  People come here for various reasons: the sun, the Gulf, fishing, shopping, and festivals.  We came for oysters....and we found some beauties!!.... prepared many healthy ways....like garlic and butter, oysters Rockefeller, and best of all...on the half shell!

Bon Secour Oysters - Delicious!
We visited the new port-home community being developed by Bella Terra called Reunion Pointe.  

Reunion Pointe - RV Port-Home
Foley, AL
What, exactly, is an RV port-home?  Think of large carport (for the RV) and a single family home (1, 2, or 3 bedrooms).

Under the roof area you would have somewhere between 1,000 - 1,500 square feet.  The actual roof area can be between 1,800 and 3,000 square feet.  A port-home is connected with a patio/courtyard, covered or open, with features such as an outdoor kitchen, planters, fireplace/firepit and maybe a courtyard waterfall.  The Reunion Pointe development will consist of 45  upscale port-homes.   In our opinion, the prices we were quoted were considerably more than we expected they would be.

Our departure from Foley is tomorrow morning and we head west toward NOLA!  This ought to be an interesting ride - the love bugs are out and lots of construction.  We've gotten the word about the resurfacing of roads around Baton Rouge westbound.  Maybe we'll miss it.

As they say in Cajun French Louisiana, "Laissez les bons temps rouler" (LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL)!   Tomorrow we look forward to our arrival on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain at the Pontchartrain Landing Marina and RV Park.
