Day 884 – From I 75 North 

Heading north to freezing Atlanta after spending the night in warm Ocala Fl. 😱 where are those lovely ocean breezes? Still at Key West? 
Funny thing happened last nite. I turned on my iPhone maps to see what restaurants were near our hotel in Ocala. It said it would take us Three Days and seven hours to walk to Carolines on Duval where we had eaten the night before. 

Bytw we voted to eat at the nearby IHOP instead of riding in the car to another restaurant. So tired of riding. 

Dinner at the Half Shell Raw Bar. Yes I was naughty. Fried shrimp and excellent fries. The reason to eat at Half Shell Raw Bar is NOT the food which is good but the view of the harbor while we waited for the Christmas lighted boat parade to begin. 

Our view is the Bar with our waitress in the center of it. Fun place to hang out.

A bit of The Christmas lighted boat parade. 

A random entry.  Oops the back of a really fun boat. The front is on my camera which is NOT wifiing to my phone like it is supposed too. 
The coast guard entry.
