Sweet Home Farm Cheese

Fairhope. Another trip. Actually this is the end of D's and my trip and then some images from Nikki's and my trip a few weeks later. The second trip involved a side road excursion to "Sweet Home Farm Cheese". All trips to Fairhope should involve this side trip. One caveat...(I think that may be the first time in my life that I have used that word) is they keep odd hours. And they adhere strictly to them. We arrived about 3 minutes after closing. And they were closed. That is why I got so many pictures of the cows. They were willing and almost happy for the company.

Because there are so many pictures of cows, I'll disperse them through out this post. An attempt to throw you all off the fact that I took that many pictures of cows. But, dang. They were so pretty.

When we go west, meaning Fairhope way, we try to plan the day to make a stop at Jessie's Cafe in Magnolia Springs. A sweet little town. A sweet little restaurant. This picture was a group of men enjoying Jessie's too.

The cows were as interested in us as we were in them. All eyes were upon us.

Outdoor dining at Jessie's . This was taken from inside looking out.

This was the most brave little fellow. He crept closer and closer to Nikki's hand. Just a mere second after I took this picture, he barely touched her fingertip with his nose then jumped like someone pinched him. He was definitely the bravest of the group.

This is one of the most beautiful roads in the south. My personal opinion. One year, for D's birthday we stayed at a little B&B on this road. Was the best little vacation. Anyway, Nikki and I had stopped the car and got out to just take a picture of this road. Then this old car came down the street. I was beside myself with excitement! It was perfect.

This is a road by the cow pasture. Lovely old dirt road. Something romantic about dirt roads.

Love cows--in fact most mammals! But I love, love, love the two road pictures. Beautiful.
