Day 2 of our trip to Florida found us traveling from Shelbyville, Tennessee to Macon, Georgia.
On our way out of town, we found ourselves outside of Lynchburg, Tennessee, home of the world famous Jack Daniels Distillery. (We didn’t do the tour of the distillery this year as we did it a year ago; not personally a whiskey sipper, but it was a fascinating tour!)
We stopped in downtown Lynchburg for a little window shopping and perusing of the Jack Daniel’s gift shop. Of course, Daddy found the Lynchburg Harley Davidson store…I think he planned that!
Inside the Jack Daniel’s gift shop they had the cutest little soda pop dispenser. For a dime (10 cents) you could purchase a Coke in a tiny little glass soda bottle and keep as a souvenir. Of course, you need the $.50 bag of popcorn to go with it!!!
Mommy with Mary, Ben, and our gracious hostess, “Miss Sheila”. Miss Sheila used to be our next door neighbor here in Kansas City. After David, her sweet husband passed away, her children moved her back home to Tennessee. We have kept in touch and visit Miss Sheila every year on our way down South for vacation!
The historical County Courthouse was beautiful!
Reminds me of that old 70’s commercial… “have a Coke and a….smile!”
My kids were absolutely mesmerized by this clever auto repair shop store front. Ben kept saying, “car.crash.in.wall.” Uhhh, something like that!
As we drove through the Blue Ridge Mountains of Alabama, we stopped for gas in Fort Payne, Alabama. It is the official home of the boys from Alabama.
We also drove by this…very cool!

Day 3 of our travels took us from Macon, Georgia to Tampa, Florida.
Our first rest area (The Welcome Center) into Florida. We still had quite a way to go from the Georgia/Florida state line to Tampa.
Doesn’t Benjamin make such a pretty girl?!!!
One word summed up our arrival into Florida…HOT!
