From Orange Beach, Alabama
My granddaughter, Ava, says "AlaVama" and it stuck, just like the nickname Ava Falava. I wrote and illustrated with original photos a story called Ava Falava at the Beach, an idea that struck me during a thunderstorm the last time we visited here two years ago.
Making new memories with family and their good friends, I told my daughter "Time wasted at the beach is not time wasted." I read that in a book.
