Graving, Sightseeing, Lighthouses, and Family


View 2017 Tallahassee and Summerville & 2015 Costa Rica (plus 1996 and 2008) on greatgrandmaR's travel map.

After we got back from the Carnival Sunshine Cruise in October 2016, our next trip was a road trip.

This was a trip which was originally scheduled in December 2016 as a visit to FSU in Tallahassee. Then our granddaughter decided to be married in May 2017, and we rescheduled the trip to coincide with her wedding in South Carolina. I tried to schedule the driving so that we drove less than 300 miles a day because as we get older, longer time in the car gets stressful.

Our schedule was
May 2 - Leave our home in Leonardtown and drive as far as Selma-Smithfield
May 3 - Drive to Augusta, Ga
May 4 - Drive to Tallahassee
May 5-6 Visit the Capitol Museum and Maclay Gardens
May 7 - Drive to NAS Mayport
May 8-9 Take photos of lighthouses, and visit Fernandina Beach and two more cemeteries
May 10 - Drive to Hinesville GA
May 11-13 - Rehearsal and wedding
May 14 - Head for home, stopping in Rocky Mount
May 15 - Home again

I kept an account of all of our expenses and the last post has the breakdown. But the bottom line....

We spent an average of $275/day on Gas, Food, Lodging, Admissions , Tolls and Gifts.
