I took this image from the highway as we left Freedom of the Seas and Port Canaveral, Florida, to begin our road trip home. Our first stop will be across the Georgia State Line.
...and we spotted the Good Year Blimp hovering over the Atlantic Coast. The last time we saw the Good Year Blimp was just before we left Cincinnati the last time. I'm sure there was some event happening at Daytona Beach.
We headed out of Jacksonville...
This first leg of our journey home took less than four hours which was great for the first day off the ship. We enjoyed a late lunch at I Hop (ah, yes I Hop!), then retired early to our cozy Hampton Inn. We had been up since 3 AM so this was a wonderful afternoon to adjust to a more normal sleep cycle.
Tomorrow morning we will be up early for more than seven hours on the road to Cherokee, North Carolina. We were in Cherokee last November and captured images of beautiful Fall colors. This time we are looking forward to images of snow on the mountains.
I hope you're enjoying our road trip with us.
