So, we decided to head to the fish pond, and feed them some old bread.
There have been a couple of new additions since I was little, and I'd hope a lot of up-keep since my mother went there (uh.hum), but there were still some of my favorite things there too!
After playing for about 1 1/2 hours, we left, because NaNa had bigger and better things on her mind!!!
This was a real surprise, and a little of a sacrifice-----after all, my NaNa had left for work at 5:30 am, got off at 11:15 am, took us to Burger King, and Fels Avenue, then drove around Downtown Fairhope during Mardi Gras crowds to make sure we got to go here! If you've never been to Downtown Fairhope during the Mardi Gras holidays, DON"T!!!! haha. People were dadgum everywhere! But, NaNa wanted to make sure Noah got to go to one of "her" favorite places!!! That's more like it! Oh, and I had a coupon! She used to own an Ice Cream Parlor before I was born, and she sold it when I was a little Tiff, and I told her if they'd kept it, we'd be rich!!! After we got our treats at Mr. Gene's Beans, they were lined up out the door!!!
Anyway, we enjoyed ourselves greatly, and made our way back to the apartments, on the way, NaNa showed me yet another place where someone has lived, this time it was Aunt Betty (her sister!) , and I think sometime (not Mardi Gras) I should have her start on one side of the town, and we'll work our way to the other, and I'll be snapping pictures of all of the history of my family!
And finally, while NaNa and I sat at the pond again, Noah found a friend with a fishing pole, he'd caught three, and he said if he'd caught another one, he'd let Noah reel it in, but no luck....it was too chilly. And, don't worry, although they were filleting size, he threw back his three, after gently removing them from his hook!
Until next time, when what happens in Fairhope, will stay in Fairhope!!!
