When we say we love the South, we’re not just paying lip service. Every day our team is out there exploring our region finding the people and places that fill our pages every month. Along the way we conjure plenty of Instagram-worthy moments that we’d love to share with you. We dug through our editors’ and photographers’ feeds to pull images that represent where we were this week. Clearly, we love what we do.
Travel editor Erin Street (@erinshawstreet) spent the weekend in Gulf Shores, Alabama, serving as a judge at the Gulf Coast Oyster Cookout hosted at The Hangout. This sunset shot shows off the calm beauty of the Gulf in the off-season.
Photographer Laurey Glenn (@laureywglenn) got to travel back to her hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and took this photo of The Golden Driller, one of America’s largest statues.
Travel editor Stephanie Granada (@sgranada) spent her birthday in Trinity, Alabama, picking cotton at Alabama Chanin and Billy Reid’s organic-cotton field. The designers and Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q hosted a picking party complete with a whole-hog barbecue lunch. Keep an eye out for notice of the next picking party—you won’t want to miss it.
