Day 10 Yesterday we wanted to get a good few miles tackled so we didn’t have to do a large journey on the penultimate day. Leaving Defuniak Springs we pootled along i-10 for a while until I remembered a place I wanted to stop off at. There aren’t many times you can say you’ve visited…
We wanted to get some miles down and headed out on the road a earlier than usual. The roads are pretty straight and easy going. After a while we stopped off at Bishops coffee shop.
We set off from Foley and headed east to Pensacola, Florida. We’d been told there was a great Naval Air Force base to visit plus it was near our hotel we were going to be staying at [More on that later].
After a couple days feeling jet lagged, we set off from Mobile to the Battleship Park where the USS Alabama (ship) and USS Drum (submarine) are based.
Today was our first proper day where I knew the time and day, and where on planet earth I was. I’d seen fantastic old trams just like the film ‘A streetcar named desire’ and for breakfast commute we headed to the stop right outside the hotel front door.
Made it! After a long flight, we came into land over swap land which looked like something out of the film, Southern Comfort.
