BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals --- An Alabama Gulf Coast Vacation Amusement

The title of this blog should be:

Beach'n'River's Excellent Adventures ---A Journal of Reflection Written to Inspire, Offer Tips and Motivation To Those Who Challenge Themselves Daily To Take The Road Not Taken

In this blog you will discover how "River Rick" and "Beachin' Betty" spontaneously purchase a piece of property near Gulf Shores, on the Bon Secour River in Foley, Alabama while on a carefree Airstream Roadtrip to becoming proud owners of a kayak rental business --- BeachnRiver Canoe and Kayak Rentals.

Follow in this journal to discover how our dreams are nearly crushed by personal injury, natural disasters and financial hardships. Learn of our day to day struggles and triumphs meeting the challenges of self-employment.

Most of all discover yourself through this adventure.

Find the threads of commonality between us --- the desire to live a free life, to be happy in life --- and for some of us --- the desire to pass on some happiness to others.

If you like what you read and can identify, feel free to email or comment. We'd love to hear from you.

Most of all, if you chose to vacation in Bon Secour, Foley, Ft. Morgan, Gulf Shores or Orange Beach, Alabama, we hope you will consider choosing Beach'n'River Canoe and Kayak Rentals for your amusement and recreational desires.

Follow along on our adventures --- or better yet --- join us for a "Beachin' Good Time!"

I Went (And Stayed) Outside Today

INSPIRATION --- I went --- and stayed outside today. I could have enjoyed my coffee outdoors then retreated in to tackle chores that lay ahead.

Instead I ventured out --- to see --- and hear -- what I would not see --- and hear while cooped inside:

I saw the morning sky turn from burning pink to soft, cerulean blue.
I saw fluffy clouds move in overhead.
I saw the steam over water rise.
I saw morning glories. (I didn't catch their unfurl.)
I saw our cat stretch --- then chase a lizard
I saw the first hummer attack the feeder.
I saw damsels and dragonflies glisten and dart in and about.
I saw a limb crash to the ground (I would have wondered when it fell had I not been standing near).
I saw squirrels jump and play.
I saw a fox trot proudly with catch.
I saw baby chicks follow their hen --- and the rooster crow and circle his wing.
I saw butterflies --- all kinds of butterflies --- hover off and onto puddles, sedums and brightly colored zinnias.
I saw leaves fall (can it already be an autumn call?)
I saw a hawk circle then perch overhead.

I saw MEN --- WITH HATS --- ON HORSES march clippity, clop by.

All these things (and more I'm sure) happened today because I went outside to see what I typically would not see. It is now past noon --- and I can hardly wait to see what I've yet to see.

Do you know what I mean?
