I made the plans back in December. Those plans changed in the beginning of May when the owner of the condo we were to be renting said he would not refund our money if the oil spill did come to the Gulf Shores /Perdido area. We lost our deposit. A week later we re booked with an owner that was. Sadly tomorrow I will be canceling that reservation as well. Oil has reached Gulf Shores as of late Monday. It has not washed up on shore yet but is abt 8 miles off shore. Too close for comfort for us. I got my info off of their local news channel website.
Now I am on the hunt in hopes of trying to out run the oil spill. If anybody has or knows of anybody who has an awesome place on the beach from Ft Walton all the way to West Panama City let me know. I have several inquiries out but so far nothing is working out. We need three bedrooms and the availability to park three cars. We want to be able to go just one last time and take in all of its beauty! We had dreams of owning along those shores one day and praying that the worst case scenario will not be the worst case for all of the shore line.
My heart and prayers go out to those whose life revolves around these shores! It is truly devastating!
