    Weather guys - Orange Beach next week

    Forecasting has changed to 90% rain Sun-Tuesday and lower % for Wed. Was going there sun-Thursday.

    Any idea if we're talking spot showers Sun/mon/Tues or something that is set in and you'll get zero beach time those days?

    The prospect of being holed up in a condo with stir crazy kids for 3 days isn't that enticing so may try to move the trip if it's going to be miserable.

    I'd be willing to bet after Sunday you'll be able to log some beach time. It could be at some different times than accustomed to, but I don't see all day rains setting in.

    I had planned to go Sun-Thurs. Think I'm going to wait until after Memorial weekend now.

    Five Rivers Delta Resource Center and the Weeks Bay reserve have a few interesting exhibits and animals for kids, depending on their age. There is always the Battleship if they haven't been. Ft Morgan, and the ferry boat over to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Esturarium are options as well.

    Edit: GulfQuest may be back open in Mobile

    As I come up with more ideas, I will edit this post.


    Edit part 2; Places to eat. The Original Oyster House is always good. Shipp's Harbour Marina Grill is my favorite down there. The Foley Coffee Shop does a great greasy breakfast, as does Hazel's. The Gulf is ok, but the seafood isn't local. Doc's is an institution. If you are willing to drop the cash, Jesse's in Magnolia Springs.

    All mentioned are good. I also like Fisher's at the Orange Beach Marina. For breakfast Ducks Diner on Canal road.
