Day 1 (Monday 04/04/2016)
Good day everyone,
We had another great winter this year, but today is the day we leave for home, so I thought I would include some our highlights of the winter.
We were able to spend some time in Hawaii, see the kids and all the family for Christmas in Minnesota, a family road trip to Texas for New Years, and back to Florida for the remaining part of winter.
Troy was able to spend some time on the golf course and I was able to have my time on the beach. We were also very fortunate to see many of our friends and guest while here in Florida.
We finished packing up the car this morning, but we got one more morning around of golf with our friends at Lake Village (where we stay). We said are good byes and hit the road around 4 o’clock. Are first day, we drove 440 miles to Dothan, Alabama, which is located a few short miles from the state lines of Florida and Georgia. Dothan is sometimes referred to as “The Peanut Capital of the World” and approximately one-fourth of the U.S. peanut crop is produced nearby, with much of it being processed in the city. Troy and I are only 30 miles into Alabama, so we haven’t seen much.
Our highlights: road construction…. a beautiful sunset and a song that continues to play on the radio as we go along the country side, you probably have never heard of it before…….. “Sweet Home Alabama!”
P.S. We left on Monday… I will also have are Tuesday journey posted later today. So, sssshhhhh, don’t tell anyone.
