This website grew out of my love for Alabama Gulf Coast living- the people, places and things that have influenced me throughout my life. In addition to my love of writing, I enjoy taking my dog and my camera and photographing the Gulf Coast. I am a country girl at heart and nourish my hunger for the outdoors by exploring beaches, parks and nature areas within easy traveling distance of home even if that occasionally means heading north away from the salty air. Now that my children are grown and I am on my own, I have traded in my car for a Ford Transit Connect mini van that serves as a mobile office, pet taxi, and micro camper and look forward to many adventures.
Here on Gulf Coast Inspired, I hope to include many of the fascinating stories and coastal history I’ve uncovered through genealogy research, as well as sharing tutorials, projects, and journeys I find interesting.
I look forward to sharing my love of Alabama gulf coast living with you and encourage you to also check out more images of some of the wonderful places and people I have photographed along my journey on my photo website JlouPhotography.com.
