A phrase that brought a smile :)

Orange Beach city sealWhile eating the best pizza we have had so far in Lower Alabama, we were carrying on a conversation with the pizza baker. In discussing the area of LA, we mentioned that many times we had taken vacations to Orange Beach and were still getting to know other areas near there since we settled in the Magnolia Springs area.

This pizzaria is located in Foley, and apparently the baker had lived here all his life. He said something like, have you heard that Orange Beach is referred to as "a quaint little drunken town with a fishing problem?"

It seems like quite few towns have adopted this phrase, or something like it, as their claim to fame, but it was the first time I had heard it.

  1. While dining at Docs in Orange Beach, I saw someone who had on a T-shirt with this phrase. Gotta get me one!
