A Simpler Life is a recurring piece included in every Portico Eastern Shore issue. Each quarter, we remind  our community the joys of a simpler life. 

When he’s not at the North Pole or traveling the world delivering gifts, you might spot Santa Claus on a jaunt through the Eastern Shore. Check out his journey here!

Alabama Winters are much milder than the North Pole.  Santa takes advantage with a walk through the woods with his buddy, Rudder.


Whether by sleigh or Stauter, Santa travels in style.

Everyone knows that Santa loves a sweet treat! Santa stops by the Mill in Fairhope for ice cream and meets some new friends.

Fantasy Island Toys is one of Santa’s favorite local suppliers.

Christmas is Around the Corner!

Santa was so happy to visit with Abigail, Bethany and Logan!

Theater 98 is taking an intermission, but Santa is looking forward to shows returning in 2021! 

Santa checks the time at the Fairhope Clock.
