Road Trip 2012 - Day 15

Sunday, April 29th - Thomasville, GA

Did you know that some hotels now install sensor lights in the bathroom and if no movement is detected within a specific time frame, the light automatically shuts off? This is bad news for people like me who like to leave the bathroom light on all night with the door barely open. Also, it's bad news for people like me who evidently stand too still in the shower, since the dadgum light went off while I was washing my hair. I started laughing hysterically and called out to The Husband. He thought something dire had happened and when he opened the door and the light flicked back on, he too started laughing. A shower in the dark and morning laughter is a good way to start the day.

Our beginning odometer = 36,678

We stopped into Waffle House for a quick breakfast and then headed 35 miles down the road to Tallahassee, FL for a flea market fix.

What a terrible mistake. The flea market was awful, awful, awful. :-(

We had a lovely drive back to Thomasville on highway 90. Between Tallahasse and Monticello the highway is lined on both sides with mature crepe myrtles. Miles and miles of mature crepe myrtles. The drive has to be stunning when they are in bloom!

We got to add a unique state welcome sign to our photos. I hope no one, other than the sign, was hurt in this incident.

We returned to Thomasville and because it was Sunday, it was virtually impossible to find a locally owned establishment that was open. We ended up at a chain restaurant with the hopes of having a cold cocktail and sharing an appetizer.

Guess what? It's against the law to serve alcohol in restaurants on Sundays in Thomas County, GA. No cocktails for us. Plus, when the appetizer was delivered it was HUGE. We ate barely a 1/4 of it. I really wish the restaurant industry would reduce portion sizes. They are ridiculous!

After returning to the room and reading and napping, we started discussing our dinner options. We finally agreed we were both happy to stay in and have Whataburger for dinner. The Husband ran out to pick up the food. When he returned to the room, he watched Major League Baseball and I watched 2 episodes of HBO's Game of Thrones on my laptop.

It was a heavenly, restful evening!

End of day odometer = 36,785
