 We left Cocoa Beach at 8:30 this morning.  I 95 is an interstate that we were told is full of traffic all the time and on an Easter Sunday it was full of action!

We saw this smoke about 5 minutes before we came upon it.
It was a diesel bus, full of people on full fire as you can see from 
the photos I managed to take as we were moving through.

After we left the scene, the highway was closed!  It took 5 firetrucks to put the fire under control...we were so lucky to have missed the cut off.

One of the highlights of the trip was seeing a lone boat on a very peaceful river in Georgia.

We also saw a car in a ditch on the road which looked like the car had stopped on the shoulder and just slipped off injuries
and some lucky spring break
young men.

As we made it to Charlotte North Carolina, we are tired and happy to have traveled this far in one day with the occasional stops for this and that. 

The dog of course was a good little traveler as usual, and slept
in the back seat of the truck most
of the way.

You have heard me say time and time again about how small our master bedroom is at the cottage, well here is Jeremy's room at his training camp.   It is the only place where they could put the cot at night because of the space....Only for a week and he said it was really comfy, on the second floor so that if there was a fire, he'd have been able to jump off the balcony!  

So, tomorrow we are heading to Eire Pennsylvania....then we will enter Canada for the first time in ages....I am still in shorts!  How good is that!
