We made impromptu plans for a family vacation this year. My husband was not sure when he would be able to get out of the office. Two weeks before the holiday we decided to book to go away. Our last family holiday was six years ago - had something to do with college fees!!! We found a condo in Gulf Shores and booked it. It was up on the 15th floor and this was my view for a week. We had the largest balcony I have ever seen in a private residence. Just stunning.
