Goodbye Freedom of the Seas and Happy Birthday, Martha!

Good morning,

First, I am delighted to say Happy Birthday to our dear friend, Martha.  The last time she and her husband and my husband and I were all together was last September aboard Freedom of the Seas.  We look forward to the next time we can be together.  Martha, we both hope you have a fantastic birthday!

Above was the last glimpse we had of Freedom of the Seas as we drove away from Port Canaveral, Florida, last week.  We'll be back at the end of January, but are happy now to be going home to be with family for the holidays.
We enjoy our road trips and this day the weather was just perfect.
We break the trips down into reasonable driving time periods and always allow time to relax and take some pictures.
 This is always a welcome sight after being out of the country.
 It must be moving day for this lady in Jacksonville, FL.  This shot was taken as we were traveling about 65 mph.
 Then it was through...
 ...what felt like...
 ...a giant bowl of concrete spaghetti.
Just inside Georgia we stopped at our usual Ihop for lunch, then traveled to our Hampton Inn near Savannah.

Tomorrow night we will sleep in Tennessee.

This was so much fun to be going home.  I hope you enjoy our road trip with us.

 All the best,

I have relatives that live in and around Jax so I know what a zoo the expressways can be! Enjoy the holidays at home. So far, our weather has been mild. If only it would stay that way through December, January and February!

A great road trip series, and it is always good to get home, no matter how wonderful the holiday was.
