Last nights hotel did the job, barely. Room was in pretty rough shape but got a good night sleep and some food in our tummies before our second day of driving. Good thing it was a cheap place to lay our heads.
Today’s drive was shorter than yesterday’s by about three hours. Could’ve been a bit shorter if I hadn’t foolishly thought it would be a nice way to break up the drive by stopping in Disney springs for supper and some shopping. Unfortunately, at soon as we hit Florida it was pouring rain the whole way. So that didn’t work out as imagined. With the way the forecast is looking I think we’re going to get some use out of the rain ponchos.
We ended up stopping at the Cracker Barrel for supper instead which was a satisfying break. The rest of the drive to Bradenton was extremely stormy and will likely continue to be through the night.
If you’re wondering why we went past Orlando to a Florida we are meeting up for breakfast with one of our old friends that moved to Bradenton. 😀
Tonight’s hotel is not a whole lot better than last nights but I’m sure it’ll work as a place to sleep and that’s all we need. Again, a cheap one.
Looking forward to tomorrow!
