I really thought today would be uneventful, and I'd have nothing to write about this evening. I should have known better! I set the alarm for 5:45 AM. We both got dressed, started carrying the bags downstairs. We were joking that Robert the Doll would be waiting for us downstairs.  As I got about 3/4 down the stairs I tripped and slid down the rest of the way down.  Other than a slightly swollen ankle, a tight calf muscle, and a bruised ego, all is fine. But is does make me want to say, "Robert did it!" 

Since I'm telling stories on myself, I will share a story about Danny. In Gettysburg, we were walking down the stairs and he fell down as well.  I made fun of him several times, so maybe today was his revenge. Although when he fell we were talking about the spirits in the house. Could it be that spirits got the best of both of us?

By 6:00 AM we were on the road leaving key West behind.  We took 2 side trips today. We stopped in Gainesville to see The Swamp at University of Florida. We also went to Florida State University in Tallahassee. Two more major stadiums marked off our bucket list!! 

After 15 hours of driving we stopped for the night at a Quality Inn only to discover a dirty room. We even looked at a second room which was not any better. Thankfully, we got our money back and went down the road a bit. Now we are in a king suite at Holiday Inn Express.  Hopefully, for the price we paid, we'll will wake up geniuses like on the commercials. Another bonus, no steps to climb or fall down.

Tomorrow we head over to our last city, New Orleans. Tai and Charlene are meeting us there so should be a really fun end to a fabulous vacation!
