New Year's Eve 2009

Doug and I joined friends - Carla and Jim, Bonnie and George, Virginia and Bob - at Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach, Alabama to celebrate New Year's Eve. Our favorite local musicians, Jim & John and The All-Star Band, kept some 300 people in the Grand Ballroom dancing all the way to midnight, when we welcomed in 2009 with a champagne toast and singing of "Auld Lang Syne."

Hope you had a great time at the resort for New Year's Eve.
Hope to see you again soon.

Jim & John are the "best" for dancing; Perdido Beach Resort is the perfect venue to showcase their talent and provide ample room for dancing. Doug and I make it over there at least once a week - see you soon!
(I discovered Jim & John at the Fish Net on 59 in Gulf Shores during my second winter here, 2002. It's a shame it wasn't rebuilt after Ivan.)
New Year's Eve at the resort was a great way to start 2009; our group had a wonderful time!
Best, Heidi
