2012 Adventure #1: Point Clear

They said it couldn’t be done.

“Impossible,” they shouted, while making that half-wave gesture that always seems to accompany the word “impossible.”

But I tell you the truth, ladies and gentlemen: Anne Riley has followed through on something she said she would do.

*Cue wild applause, throwing of confetti, prancing Zebras, wand-wielding magicians and cats riding unicycles*

Only three days after declaring to the world my intention of making 2012 a year of adventurous living, I actually went out and had myself an adventure. Can you believe it?

Yeah . . . me neither.

The fam and I packed up and headed down to Point Clear, Alabama, located in a part of the state affectionately known as The Tail.

We stayed right on Mobile Bay, so we spent time watching the boats . . .

and talked to some shockingly uncooperative ducks . . .

and did our best CHiPs impressions . . .

and ate some awesome Cajun food while perusing the local real estate market . . .

and checked out some beautiful artwork.

Of course, these photos are just the tip of the iceberg, but I’m happy to say that 2012: A Year Of Adventurous Living is off to a strong start. We’ve got two more adventures coming up in the next couple months. I won’t say exactly when or where we’re going because I am wary of the potential danger of announcing my whereabouts to the internet (I’m looking at you, Foursquare), but rest assured you’ll hear about it when we return.

Oh, and guess what? I’m going to my second Zumba class tonight. I went last week and didn’t die. Miracles really do happen.

Have a fabulous Tuesday, friends.
