I have spent a great many hours watch the world go by at low level and I am often transported back to my schooldays sitting in Alan Leedham’s geography lessons. For this trip the ones that immediately spring to mind are river meanders and ox-box lakes, the former is in full force and I haven’t spotted the latter, but am sure that I will do so soon. Yesterday we crossed over the Suwannee river which was greeted with a bust of song from Chris, needless to say (and probably obvious from the intro) this river certainly takes a long route across the land.
This morning we took off from Marianna airfield and continued on our way through the state of Florida, I have to admit my ignorance on the state, when we landed last night we had moved into central time. I had expected that this time zone transition would happen further west. It did give us the added bonus of an extra hour in bed this morning which was most welcome.
I’m currently sat in our U-Haul truck with Sam who is one of the project runners, the trip from Pensacola to New Orleans this afternoon was weight limited so I travelled by road, apparently this ended up as part of the story of that leg of the journey! Another great sunset along the way, which I presume Felicity, Jeff and Lawrence were all witness to.

The road to Mobile crosses Mobile bay just north of Gulf Shores includes an impressively long bridge and very long bridge indeed…..
