Beautiful Fort Morgan
Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are the uncrowded, unspoiled beaches on the Fort Morgan Peninsula in Alabama. It is our home away from home, and a place that has a very special place in our hearts. This is a place where time stands still, unspoiled by high rise, high density condo buildings and resorts. Instead, you will see modest, privately owned beach homes, some of which have been there for centuries.
Beauty and nature abound on a beach that is not groomed, and is just as nature and its visitors have left it. It's a place where you can happily walk the beach and find shells, driftwood, and other treasures. It's a place where you can view dolphins and rays frolicking in the water, brown pelicans flying in formation, seagulls and blue heron, and of course the elusive sand crab. It's a place of clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
These photos represent the beauty and nature found on the beaches of Fort Morgan. It will break the hearts of all who have visited if this beauty is spoiled. I pray that does not happen.......
