The Meandering Vacation: Chapter 7.5

I forgot! I forgot!

After leaving the nice little hotel in Inverness on our way to the incomparable Weeki Wachee Springs we did make one stop to refule... our stomachs.

We drove around and it didn't take Ron very long to sniff out this place:

Ron had bacon, hash browns, and eggs over medium. I had bacon, eggs, and (yummy!) grits. Real, honest, southern grits. And not the instant type. Not only were our stomachs refuled, but you could taste the love in the food and our spirits were refuled too.

The Meandering Vacation: Chapter 8

I know, I know. It’s been a couple of weeks since my last chapter, but there’s no more waiting! Here are photos from the highlight of our trip: Weeki Wachee Springs!

They performed a very accurate version of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid”. I told Ron that I wanted to retire down there and audition for the role of the wicked witch. I can cackle with the best of them.

The Meandering Vacation: Chapter 7

After lunch and a few beverages we decided to drive a few hours and stayed just into Georgia. That night we got online and searched long and hard for touristy things to do in Georgia the next day. There was nothing. Well, there was plenty of things to do for kids, and for people who liked specific historical things like trains of the locomotive type as well as trains of the underground type, Ron voted against going to the relatively new Atlanta Aquarium. We did find an amusement park along the way but their rides were too small for Ron who is a roller coaster fiend and snob. So we kept driving.

We spent the night in the small town of Inverness, Florida. I was surprised at Inverness, which looked like a good sized town on the map, and when we got there we found lots of churches, restaurants, housing developments, bars, grocery stores, and plenty of things to do for those people who lived there. There were almost no hotels. Well, there were exactly 2 hotels. We couldn’t find one and we drove by the 2nd one which had an old MOTEL sign that made me have flashbacks of the Bates Family Motel. But the buildings (I think there were 4 total) were not as old as the sign, and were comfortable.

Ron had the presence of mind to fill the growler with beer at a brewery earlier that day and we sat outside our room with bare feet and enjoyed the warm damp night breeze. I was mesmerized by a sticky toed tree toad that clung to a post outside of our hotel door. Ahhhhhhh. Florida.
