Thursday, February 12, 2009 Perdido Pass to be dredged - al.com   Perdido Pass to be dredged - al.com: "ORANGE BEACH — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers aims to begin dredging the navigation channels through Perdido Pass within a month, likely removing more than 400,000 cubic square yards of sand that has choked boating lanes in recent years.City officials had hoped to use that sand — equal to about 25,000 dump truckloads — to bolster portions of its manmade beach that were eroded by this past summer's storms. It's estimated that hurricanes Ike and Gustav, though they merely passed by in the Gulf of Mexico, swept away about 750,000 cubic yards of sand from Orange Beach's shoreline, Coastal Resource Manager Phillip West said."

Let me preface this blog with the fact that I just returned from a week trip to the famous Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. Believe it or not, I enjoy traveling to other beach destinations and take notes from my trip to enhance the services and rentals we offer at Prickett Properties in Orange Beach Alabama. The Atlantis amenities are over the top. There are shark tanks, an aquarium that beats the New Orleans aquarium hands down, huge water slides, a 30 minute lazy river ride with white water rapids, a casino, and of course those turquoise waters. However, the Atlantis is lacking affordability. I guess that I have gotten use to good ole Orange Beach Alabama because I was shocked. A domestic beer was $7.50 and a kids hot dog was $10.00 by the pool. I shutter to think about the dinner menu...

Hey,   I'm putting together the details on the auction for everyone we had that was interested in it. I'll go ahead a give you the snap shot. The penthouses went for 375K to 480K. The corner units (3/3 w/wet bars) went for as low as 200Ft. (315K w/out auction cost) interior 3/3 units went as low as 250k w/out auction cost. I'll send you the article. I think total units sold was 60+ units and I'm looking to see if I can get anymore from them. We had one family show up and got them the 3/3 corner unit. I have others now wanting to get in so if your interested let me know.    Talk to you soon, Chad
