Natchez Trace and the Gulf

When COVID-19 forced us to postpone our trip to Spain for another year we took the opportunity to drive the Natchez Trace Parkway, a road trip we’ve been wanting to do. We combined that with a couple of weeks along the Gulf of Mexico for some beach time and long walks in nice weather.

Texas Road Trip

We'd planned to go snorkeling in the Caribbean but COVID forced us to stay in the USA. We took the opportunity to drive to Big Bend National Park to go hiking instead. And hit Austin and San Antonio for some urban exploring, and Port Aransas for the beach and birds.

Glacier National Park

Plan A was England and Wales. COVID-19 scuttled that. Plan B was a trip to three national parks (Glacier National Park in the USA and Banff and Jasper National Parks in Canada) but the Canadian border was closed due to COVID-19. So Plan C ended up being a road trip to Glacier. Which was still great!

Fort Myers and the Blue Ridge

We were supposed to be in Spain, but the worldwide pandemic canceled that. So we went on a quick road trip to Florida instead, figuring that we could bail out and head home any time. And we were glad we did, because we ended up doing just that!

Three weeks of sun, sand, snorkeling, and relaxation at Tobacco Caye, Caye Caulker, and Placencia. With a little rainforest and a trip to the zoo mixed in.

Panama City Beach

We stayed near the beach near Panama City Beach but never made it into town. The beach was our destination! And it was a great beach for relaxing and walking. Not busy at all.

Gulf State Park

Orange Beach

Orange Beach wasn’t really our kind of place. Too many high rises. Too much traffic. The beach and the nearby state park are beautiful though.
