LULU’s and a Belly Rub

 

Next stop, Homeport Marina in Gulf Shores, AL. Nice little marina very well protected. LULU’s restaurant was the place to have dinner. A fun place owned by Jimmy Buffett’s sister Lucy Buffett. It has the feel of a Parrot head bar with its own twist.

Appetizer of choice “Lower Alabama Caviar”. This was a tasteful combination of Black-eyed peas in a Balsamic Vinaigrette.

On my quest for the best Shrimp and Grits, LULU’s will be in the TOP 5 for sure. It was a combination of Gulf Shrimp and Andouille Sausage in a Tasso and Tomato Cream Sauce. Served with Gouda Grits and some other stuff. The Grits were so creamy and the shrimp sausage combo was spiced just right.

We wanted to haul out SEASONS just to do a bottom check after all the rivers and before we headed out for the Gulf crossing. Saunders Yacht Works is one of the most professional places I have every worked with. They treated our trawler like they owned it. The bottom and running gear (props, shafts, and rudders) looked great. Unfortunately we sheared off our primary forward view depth transducer. $$$$

The sacrificial anodes were deteriorating which is good. They are doing their job so we replaced them. A bottom wash (Belly Rub) and waterline scrub and we were on our way.

Bring on the Gulf. Headed to Ft McRee.
