Deep South Trip Day 5: The West Side of Florida

I woke up a little before sunrise. Sleeping in my car made the windows a bit fogged up.

I hit the road and watched the sunrise.

I made it to a McDonald’s for breakfast. I had to order from a kiosk. This was the first time I’ve actually seen these kiosks.

After breakfast, I went to Walmart for some supplies and then hit the road. My goal was to make it to the Wicked Dolphin Distillery in time for a tour.

I made it to Wicked Dolphin in time!

After my tour of Wicked Dolphin, I hit the road for Victoria’s brother Michael’s house. It was 90F (32C)!

I made it to Michael’s house and gave him his boxes of stuff. We hung out and BSed for a while. One of his cats was curious and came by to say hi. The other one hid. This cat’s name is Simba.

Michael’s wife Kayleigh came home, and we decided to get some takeout from Bob Evans.

There were cool sunset colors in the sky for our drive back.

I got a baked chicken with coleslaw and mac and cheese meal. It hit the spot after a long day of driving!

Michael got me a Cigar City Tampa Style Lager. It was one of the better lagers I have had!

In the meantime, Michael’s other cat made a short appearance. This cat’s name is Shadow.

In the meantime of Shadow barely making an appearance, Simba was looking for some love.

We ended up watching some TV and then getting to bed somewhat early. I know I was exhausted from all the driving I did. Dropping the boxes of the stuff off at Michael’s house was the primary purpose of my trip. It was nice to complete that part of the trip. After sleeping in my car the last few days, it was nice to get a good night’s sleep in a house.
