The welcome center had some very nice displays...including this turtle replica.
By 5:00 pm I was thinking of stopping for the night in Brunswick, GA...my original plan. Then I talked with my son, who I was headed to visit. We considered how on Friday there was due to be a huge line of thunderstorms coming across the south...so I said I'd try to get a bit further before I nested for the night. My aim was to stay somewhere near Jacksonville.
And the sun was going down on the other side of the car.
Once I got past Gainesville, I saw no reason to postpone till the next day the 2-1/2 hours of remaining travel. And it was fun not having bad traffic nor the cross-winds when I got on I-75. I just stopped one more time before I got to my son's house where I was welcomed by my grandson, Michael. My son was home later in the evening, after I'd happily closed my eyes, while behind my eyelids the earth was still coming toward me between white lines at 80 miles per hour.
