Gone to the Dogs, Waiting Out the Weather and Other sights

Today will be a short 5 mile cruise from The Wharf Marina to our anchorage at Pirates Cove.  

That's the news and here's the views:

We are here

Today's cruise from The Wharf Marina to Pirate's Cove Anchorage, AL

The reason we are headed for Pirate's Cove is because a weak cold front is approaching and we want a safe and shielded anchorage to wait for the weather to pass.  High winds are expected so if it was good enough for Pirates then it's good enough for us.

 Yes, we looked for skeletons

 Rare view without Jazzy the Dinghy attached

This has been an exceptional day for me because I've gotten to be around some of the sweetest, friendliest dogs.  We went to a very pretty anchorage called Pirates Cove which is north of Orange Beach (I think).  After anchoring, we deployed the dinghy and toured the surroundings.

After we finished our burgers, two older men came over to have a alcoholic milkshake drink and had Hermosa and Molly the dogs with them.  The two dogs jumped up on the bench seat, then jumped on the table and had several tastes of the drink.  They were the cutest little dogs!!!!
