Driving to the Emerald Princess, first day

Driving from Pensacola to Clermont

Shortly before 9:00 A.M. we took the cats to the new pet hotel our vet just opened. We signed them in and headed east on Interstate 10 on our way to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale and the Emerald Princess. The weather was cool and the sky was gray. At lunchtime we stopped in Chipley for lunch at Gary's Flamin' Grill (we discovered it a while ago and liked it a lot) but it was closed (for the day after Thanksgiving Day).

Onward, cross-country to Marianna to eat at Madison's Warehouse but they too were closed (for the day after Thanksgiving Day). We ended back at I-10 and ate at Po' Folks Country Restaurant. Good fried chicken on their buffet.

Bad rain storms before and after Tallahassee. Got to the Hampton Inn in Clermont, just north of Orlando, before 8:00 P.M., We drove 454 miles.
