It is only about 4hrs and 15min driving time from Birmingham to Point Clear on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay, but the differences are a dramatic difference in topography and climate that combines subtropical and tropical plants around the 1847 Grand Hotel at Great Point clear.

The weather was spectacular with sun and 74˚ E nice anytime—but mid-December?

The gourmet food was great as usual, and we had a nice holiday celebration with our old and new MBCA friends.  Our cars were right at home in the shaded parking areas, as Mercedes-Benz seemed to be the most numerous marque.

Ron Harshman and Terry Brian got 20 & 10 year membership pins respectively. 

Over the last 4 years we have bragged that Alabama – Northwest Florida Section is the only one with two holiday parties. Now notice that our friend, David Abarr’s Portland section is also trying a second holiday party for the southern part of the large state.  This is not the first time other sections have adopted our innovations: Triangle now has subsections, and even Peachtree is considering this.
