Easy day of driving today, just 4 hours from Kingsland, Georgia to St. Petersburg, Florida.


The Red Roof Inn in St. Peterburg has a pool --- so did the one in Kingsland but this one was more inviting. Unfortunately, the water was cold, really cold. So cold that even kids were complaining about the temperature.

Ed and I had finished settling in and were about to head out to wash the car when John and Carol arrived. We helped them carry everything from their car to their room then we all headed out to the car wash. It's funny, just about the first thing you want to do when you get out of the snow and cold is to wash the road salt off the car --- at least John and Ed do.
