Those Eastern Views!

Silver Beach 501 Living AreaThere are about 40 miles of white sand beaches from Johnson Beach in Perdido Key to Fort Morgan in Gulf Shores. When it comes to views along our shoreline, east-corner condo units often garner special attention and fetch a premium because of their unobstructed sunrise vistas and their ideal orientation to the clear Gulf waters. Not that we have anything against sunsets! Because of the way our beaches run, we do sometimes get sunsets over the Gulf, but mainly in winter and only just at the western edge. There is truly nothing like a sunrise on the Gulf, though - watching the light track across the sky and sparkle off the Gulf's peaceful surface is food for the soul.

It's Mardi Gras time!

For those who do not make the South their home, the holiday, Mardi Gras, is often met with some confusion. What are these days in late-winter that are marked by so much festivity, food, and fun - and why are they so special?

The Mardi Gras holiday is undoubtedly synonymous with the fair city of New Orleans. The first Mardi Gras celebration in The United States is said to have occurred around the year 1700. But did you know that some believe that the first Mardi Gras celebration was actually held in Mobile, Alabama, just across the bay from our Gulf Coast beaches? I certainly won't enter into this debate today, but just know that it is an ongoing topic of discussion!

A Time for Celebration

The tradition dates back…
