Well, after an 11 year hiatus the Wurtz clan revisited what is fondly coined the "Redneck Riviera" down at Gulf Shores, AL. Though I had to leave early to make it to Middlebury on time, we all had a blast lounging at the beach and taking in local food specialties, i.e., fried seafood. It was great to see my brother, Phillip, who became engaged to Vanessa over the weekend. And nice as well to see my sister who is expecting her third child on September 8th. Oh, and we were all glad mom and dad were there since they footed the bill. Thanks, mom and dad!
