Sad Sad Victoria


See what happens when you don't plan things!!!!!

Mobile Alabama

Howdy Y'all

We are writing today from Mobile Alabama. Today has been long but fun. We started out in Tallahassee. Had breakfast at a place called Another Broken Egg. It was fantastic. Chris had an omellette with crab, onions and cheese and I had an omellette with bacon, chorizo sausage and cheese. They were yummy. Really slow service and surprisingly this has been a recurring theme today.

We drove through downtown Tally(as the locals call it) in the day time and looked around. It's nice. Then we set off on an adventure to the Florida Caverns State Park. Awesome tour!!! The tour guide was fabulous. We were about 50 feet underground. We took many pictures of formations in the caves. Apparently there are like 30 caves that they have discovered on the property but you can only tour this one.

So we left the park and then on the way back to the interstate we drove past a Federal Correctional Facility and it was really nice!! Kinda odd placement was beside a Middle School. We think it was a fairly low security prison because we didn't see any guys in towers with guns. So we stopped for a snack at a Sonic's. Bad choice. Drinks were good but service and food wasn't sooo good. Every order including our own that we saw the workers bring out to people were wrong! They gave me the wrong salad and it took forever to get the right one.

We decided after snack time to see how long it would take us to get to either Pensacola or Mobile today. Well they are about 50 miles apart so we headed to Mobile. We arrived at the hotel at about 6pm and got our room keys. Brought our luggage up stairs and I opened the door.... and low and behold a NAKED guy was changing in front of me!!!! Obviously the front desk screwed up. Chris had to go back to the front desk and get the correct room. Funny thing is that the same thing happened to someone else yesterday!!! I hope that doesn't happen again it wasn't a pretty site. So after getting settled we went for dinner. We ate at a restaurant called JR's Smokehouse and proceeded to have an amazing dinner!!! Chris had a full slab (rack) of dry rub ribs and I had a combo of pulled pork and smoked sausage. Chris would like to change his Best BBQ honour from last night to tonight. While last night was good the Quality of tonights food far outweighs yesterday. Chris really enjoyed last nights Quantity. So if these two places got together Chris would never leave.

So that's all for today... We are in Central time zone now and with the time change tomorrow I don't know what time it will be when we get up and stuff.

Bye y'all...Y'all have a good night!!


Morning All.

Decided to just post some pictures from our trip so far. Yesterday was mostly a day off, we drove over to Tallahassee, found a nice cheap place and relaxed. Our hotel was dependent on the fact that at 7pm they brought out free freshly baked cookies!!! Chocolate chip and white chocolate macadamia nut. Yum. We had dinner at Sonny's Real Pit BBQ. Here is what we had: Pulled pork, sliced pork, ribs, ribs, more ribs, smoked turkey, pulled brisket, smoked chicken, mac and cheese, cornbread, garlic bread, corn on the cob, baked beans oh and potato salad. No this was not a buffet. They just kept bringing Chris more food since he got the all you can eat meal. He says that it was the best BBQ he has had. We then went to the Tallahassee Mall and went to see Wild Hogs. We thought it was appropriate after all the bikers yesterday. Fabulous movie. Go see it.

Anyway, here are some pics
