Now that I’ve posted Part 2 of our road trip to Cali (2 years ago), I can share pics of the trek from San Antonio to Tampa …and also begin posting all the cool stuff here in Florida.
We left San Antonio headed eastbound for Florida two months ago. I napped most of the way to Houston. I didn’t have it in me to take any pics ’til the next morning. Half of these photos were taken inside a moving car, so please excuse any blurry shots.
It was stormy during most of our drive through Louisiana and then later in Florida.
VIDEO CLIP (below): Ugh, thunder and downpours. Not fun when you’re driving in it for hours.
This grocery store was on my “must-try list”. They’re known for their Poor Boy sandwiches…
The verdict: It rocked our faces off! The spices they used with the cornmeal were divine. Chip and I already decided we’d try to stop there again next time we’re in central Louisiana.
Our must-try restaurant in Tallahassee, Florida…
Holy moly, our meals were scrumptious! Best Gyro I’ve eaten in a long time. Like Olde Tyme Grocery, we’d definitely go back for more yummy goodness.
We stopped in Gainesville, Florida for dessert…
Just as Chip pulled up to a gas station in Micanopy, Florida…this driver was finishing gassing up his tractor.
And directly across the street was this heavily-advertised business (we passed plenty of billboards about this café). :p
It took us 50 hours for us to arrive in Tampa from San Antonio. Because we were fairly tired from packing up earlier in the week, we made it a point to get a good night’s sleep during this long haul.
We’re staying in a nice condo (it’s pretty much my dream kitchen), so stay tuned for a recipe. In fact, since it’s Fall, I’ll post something pumpkin-y!Tweet
