I woke up yesterday and started daydreaming of a road trip.
Interrupting this dream, I get a call from Christa about a sick little Lexie :(
So with Christa heading off to work,
I told her I'll hop in the car and head on over to keep my eye on the pup for the day.
Getting from St. Augustine to Gainesville is about a 68 mile drive one way.
But what's great about these miles is the fact that the drive is totally on country back roads.
Rt.1 to SR206 to SR207
then Hwy 100 to SR26
and then you're there!
My idea of a road trip!
So enjoy it with me...
For all of you Northeners,
if you're missing your fall colors,
come to my state in December.
I love seeing these vibrant colors bordering our roadways during this season.
We'll drive through Spuds, the Potato Capital...
And we can stop at Bulls-hit (don't say that too fast!) Ranch
for some Bull's Chips.
(I've known Rick Gilson to go miles out of his way
to buy his favorite potato chips from here.
You leave your money in a box on the counter :)
We'll cross the St. John's River,
one of the few rivers in the world that flows north.
(What the significance of this is, I don't know,
but you may come across that fact in a trivia game some day.)
Halfway through our trip, we'll definately stop at...
where we'll order a fried egg sandwich...
and have plenty of drink choices
(given the # of sweet tea containers, I would say that's the drink of choice,
until the workmen stop by at 5, that is!)...
