It was another great driving day with plenty of sunshine and a temperature of 43 when we left and up to 70 when we arrived at the CG in Florida. The sunrise was beautiful!
|I wish you could see the beautiful reflections in the lake at|
the CG. We were leaving the park when I took this photo!
|If the windshield wouldn't be so dirty this would be a much|
In between those 2 locations, we drove through 4 states - Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and then through most of the Panhandle of Florida. I don't have a Welcome to Mississippi because of the dirty windshield it wasn't readable!
These pictures were taken in Alabama -
|An amazing welcome center!|
|Love the pictures on the building. We stopped here to have|
our lunch in Waldo!

aboard this fishing boat!
Now for some photos from the Panhandle of Florida -
|We are starting to see some colorful leaves! Hope we|
see more as we head north!
|I think this was East Bay! Lots of water!!!!|
|Near Pensacola , Florida and the Naval Base! Actually this|
was at the Rest Stop along I-10
We covered 425 miles in about 9 1/2 hours arriving at Jellystone CG in Madison, Florida around 5. (We lost an hour when changing to Eastern Time!) I talked to Noela several times throughout the day and they are staying about 150 miles to the west of us on Interstate 10 in Florida.
This CG is conveniently located right off Interstate 10 and accepts Passport America, so we were thrilled with $30.00 for the night. The sight is large and level so the CRV can stay connected to Waldo - that saves time in the morning. We had planned to arrive at Lazydays in Tampa on Monday, but with Ken's good driving and traffic being very manageable, we will be at Lazydays by lunchtime tomorrow if all goes well and we leave early. It is in the 80's in Tampa, so we are excited to get to Lazydays. Also, we have plenty to do to be ready to leave early Tuesday morning including decided what goes home and loading the CRV, laundry, and defrosting the refrigerator. Waldo could also use a good cleaning before we leave. Having a extra day to complete these tasks will be so helpful!
Ken grilled tonight while I made salads. We called our card club friends who were together to watch Penn State win another football game and add to their fantastic winning season.
Spent the evening downloading photos and working on the blog. It seems like I do that everyday! I enjoy doing it, but sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming!
