DAY 21 - 29.3 MILES

We walked to Alabama!!  Jim walked with us again today and after taking the 400 mile photo from yesterday, our route today was mostly along the gulf beaches. The road was good with a bike path most of the way, but it was pretty congested with lots of high rise condos, hotels, houses, a few shopping centers, restaurants and some nice beaches.  It is called the Redneck Riviera. We thought we might have a whole day with no trash or roadkill, but we did see a dead bat, and later when we were on a much more rural stretch, a dead raccoon. Today was really the first day we saw others out walking for exercise. Imagine that!!  
After walking, Jim said we had to stop at the Flori-Bama Bar for some beer because it is a famous place on the state line.  It is quite the joint- rated one of the top 10 beach bars, crowded, live music, and Jim got us their signature drink, a Bushwacker. It's like a cream colored slurpy made with 2 kinds of rum, some other liquor and amaretto. Most of us thought it was very good. We had a lot of laughs on the long car ride to the condo and didn't get back until after 6:00. Many, many thanks to Jim and Deborah for their generous and gracious hospitality. We had so much fun with them and will be sorry to leave their fabulous condo in the morning.

  1. Congrats on making it across Florida! Hope you enjoy Alabama. Very spring-like in Summit. Some snow is on the way though.
