…we are still in Central Time Zone? Who knew? Of course, it doesn’t matter which time zone I’m in right now because either way I’m exhausted! I definitely have a new appreciation for a) those who drive long hours at a time, b) those who travel with their furry kids, and c) those who do both WITH two adult sons who just want to get to the Tampa Bay Area. Oh, I might be the only one dumb enough to do all three, thus explaining why I’m so tired!
Last night we got to Pensacola, FL around 6:00pm and got the pups fed and out to do their biz in record time! After they were settled, I took Ryan and Dylan to a Brazilian Steakhouse across the street. I actually had a glass of wine with dinner! So I slept pretty good last night…:)
We are actually going to stay in Pensacola for one more day because the RV storage place we’ll be using for the first time in FL is not open on Sundays. Another thing I was concerned about was the weather as we’d be driving south. Looking at the map last night it showed some severe winds and storms at about the time we’d be rolling into Tampa. In thinking how scary it could be for the two pups, I decided against that extra trauma as we get to their new home!
More pics to follow but this is one of Athena after hearing something in the hallway. Let me tell you that once the dogs hear another dog bark in another room, heads up! They all start up…which begs the question: what are they saying to each other? Help me? Get me outa here? How long you been in there?
This morning I took the dogs outside to do their thing and when I tried to get back in the back door, both my keys didn’t work. So I had no choice but to walk in the front doors with both dogs. When some people see Athena they can tell she’s a sweetheart– those people are also ‘dog’ people. Most people, however avoid her like the plague. After getting my keys replaced I started walking down the long hallway back to the room and one of the hotel maids took one look at her and ran the other way! Too funny because she’s so good…and so misunderstood!
