Last Sunday we went over to Gulf Shores to the Shrimp Festival, this was my first time and it did not disappoint. They had tons of places to eat and even more arts and craft booths. I forgot my camera so no pictures. We found a few things, an Alabama and Florida yard signs made from metal, also got Cole a peace sign from same place and Shane a smaller Alabama version for his room, my sister-in-law is crazy about the NO Saints so we found a really cute necklace and earrings for her. Of course we had to try the shrimp and since I don't have a gallbladder I had to have some fried shrimp, it was good and the best part was I didn't get sick from eating it!

This weekend the Greek Festival was going on so on Friday husband I went by again my first time and I was disappointed in the number of craft booths - 3! I guess people go the festival for the food and it was really good too. I loved the sweets, reminding me of being in Turkey. Here is some of the sweet we got, I had to hurry and take a picture before it was gone.

I love going to the Greek festival. I didn't go this year. They never have had many crafts there. The one at Fort Walton Beach is indoors and has a lot of craft booths and jewelry booths. It's in doors so there's no threat from rain and it's air conditioned. It's always on Labor Day weekend.
