Heritage Motor Coach Resort

We are now in Alabama. Three days of driving and we have at last cleared the state of Florida. We are staying at the Heritage Motor Coach Resort in Orange Beach. We will be here for two days, giving us a bit of a break as we make our way west to California.

Heritage is a surprisingly small but beautiful Class A resort.

The clubhouse is on two floors, overlooking the water.

Coming into the resort, you will see this one street with the clubhouse at the end.

The road continues along a sharp u-turn and comes out the opposite end. One way in. One way out. The road is not much longer than a quarter mile. 79 sites.

The sites are on the narrow side, roughly 40 feet across. Fairly deep. Well appointed. Each site has its own coach house.

The middle row, the heart of the resort, has sites with a common walking path in the middle. I suspect that it would be a very loud part of the resort in season as the sites in this section are connected to each other by this walking path.

Another shot from within the walking path.

There is a marina attached to the resort and the views from this part of the park are stunning.

An American flag proudly overlooks the beachfront.

Here is our coach, nestled into site 28. Tight spot, just not as tight as Carrabelle Beach RV Resort.

Rest day today. Another driving day tomorrow. Long driving day, ten to twelve hours.

Carrabelle Beach RV Resort

Our trip to California entered day two. A five-hour drive from Florida Grande Motorcoach Resort to Carrabelle Beach RV Resort.

If you come to Carrabelle with a diesel pusher, be prepared as this place is very tight and there won’t be anyone from the park to help you get into your site.

Here we are with just enough room to fit our toad sideways on the entrance to our site. Our view? The backside of another coach. Surrounded by coaches actually. Packed in like sardines.

Lorraine seemed to think that Carrabelle Beach RV Resort was a Class A park.

It’s not.

Trailers, fifth wheels, Super Cs and a few Class A coaches. Nice place even if the sites are on the narrow side. Clean and well kept.

The main attraction of Carrabelle is the beach. It is a beautiful stretch of water, if you like that kind of thing, just across the street from the resort. This picture shows where we entered the beach. You can hardly make out the water for the sky as it was a very calm evening.

Please do not judge us too harshly. Our dog has never seen a beach before. We live in Canada. In the snow and ice. There are no beaches in Canada. Lots of snow though. And, to Tabby, the sand looked like snow. Did not taste like snow, as she later found out.

The beachfront is certainly stunning and I’m glad we pulled in early enough to see it.

Here is a short video of our trip out to Carrabelle. Tomorrow we make our way to Heritage Motorcoach Resort in Alabama. We get to stay there for a couple of days before continuing on to the great state of Texas.
