We were up in time to see sunrise over the pier this morning, but despite the early start we didn’t get far. A quick stop at an outlet mall near Destin, FL took much longer than expected and all the waking made us hungry. Lunch at the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant was very filling and … Continue reading

Enjoyed the sun on our balcony this morning before driving down to Fort Pickens but the road to there was closed, so we returned to the hotel and went for a long walk instead. Today was the first shorts day we’ve had and even the sweatshirts came off during our walk as the temperature climbed … Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends, relatives, and hosts. The day started cool and clear but on our balcony sheltered from the breeze it felt quite warm. Of course a little Jim and a little Jack may have helped. We soaked up a few rays while listening to Jimmy Buffett sing Son of a … Continue reading

After coffee this morning we headed off to the beach. Although it was sunny the sun was no match for the northerly wind. Even though we were all bundled up in our hoodies we didn’t get very far on foot before we returned to the hotel for the car. The high today may have been … Continue reading

We were later still getting on the road today due to a little problem with our 12v cooler that was inadvertently left plugged in overnight. That, plus watching the weather channel on TV. We’ve been pushed along by the weather as much as anything since we left. Although we’ve had it unusually cool and wet … Continue reading

We overslept this morning and didn’t get on the road until 9:40, our latest morning yet. It was overcast to start the day but not as cold. It even got up to 6 C at one point. Nashville is a very large city crisscrossed by Interstate highways with lots of traffic and poor signage. Not … Continue reading

Still cold but clear today with little or no wind. The bright sun made it feel much warmer than yesterday even though it remained below freezing pretty much all day. Today was our real first sightseeing, touristy day. A little before noon we stopped at a little place run by Fred Noe in Clermont, KY. … Continue reading

At least we were on the road an hour earlier this morning but it was cold. The temperature hovered around the freezing mark all day today and we had flurries on and off throughout the day – no accumulation as the ground here hasn’t frozen yet at least. We stopped a couple of times along … Continue reading

All week the forecast for today had been for it to be fine. Yesterday it was changed to rain. So we awoke this morning to rain, drizzle, and fog – a typical dreary November day. As a result we were in no particular hurry to get on the road and it was close to 9:20 … Continue reading
