Hi,I enjoy reading your blog. I love to go on weekend trips around the southeast. I have been to Mangnolia Springs many times. I know you enjoyed it. You didn't mention Fair Hope, but if you get the chance to go back it is a must. I teach School in Muscle Shoals Alabama. We are located in the northwest corner of the state. If you are ever in our area you would enjoy Tuscumbia and Florence. Great old homes, beautiful University of North Alabama campus in Florence, and Helen Keller Birthplace in Tuscumbia. These two towns are right across the Tennessee River from each other. Both boast great old down town districts with wonderful restaurants. Also Mentone AL is another one of my favorite places with beautiful mountain views and waterfalls. It is close to Ft. Payne home of the retired music group ALABAMA. The longest yardsale goes through there the first weekend in August.
