December 2, 2016 - Columbus, AL to Fernandina Beach, FL

We were up at 6:45 am, decided to get breakfast at Chick A Fila that was not far from Walmart. We did not enjoy breakfast from Chick A Fila and they did not taste as great as they used to be.  At least, our tummies were not empty.

 The morning was foggy when we hit the road.  The fog soon cleared up and the clouds were gone. We crossed the Georgia State line, but there was no state sign.  We used US 280 then to 520.

One more diesel fill up before we arrived our final destination.  There were lots of Christmas decor in Sylvester, GA.  

We made it to Florida State line at 12:45 pm.  While it was good to be back in  Florida we do miss Montana very much.

We finally arrived Fort Clinch State Park at 1:55 pm.  The ranger asked if everything was alright because we were supposed to check in here yesterday.  We got site #46.

It was easy backing the LH in the site. After setting it up we pulled out patio rug, chairs and a table.  We rested a while before going out to do errands.

We took the Jeep to a touch free car wash in Fernandina Beach.  It did not do a great job of removing the dirt, but at least the windows were much cleaner.
Edith had planned on cooking supper when we get back from errands.  However, Erwin suggested that we eat pizza at The Loop restaurant that was near the car wash. Erwin was concerned about Edith's head colds, wanted her to have a break. We had a large artichoke/pepperoni/mushroom pizza.  It was so good. Erwin had to be very hungry because he ate 4 slices. We brought the rest home.

On way back to the state park we stopped at Publix (Edith's favorite grocery store).  There is no Publix in Montana  :-(  We picked up what we will need for rest of the week.

What a good rest we had tonight after driving a long way for three and half days.

Miles from Three Forks, MT to Fernandina Beach, FL: 2,381  
Three nights of rest stop
