From Pennsylvania to Florida

That was a perfect traveling-by-car day! No traffic jams or any kind of delays, overcast eighty percent of the time. With all the stops it took me about 17 hours to drive the distance of 1,050 miles – from Pennsylvania to Florida.

Like many times before, I very much enjoyed driving through North Carolina. The landscaping along this state’s highways seems quite impressive to me.

On my way up north about a month ago I admired fields of yellow daylilies.

On my way home I enjoyed breathtaking views of groups of crape myrtle trees in full bloom. They were in all the colors: white, rose and red. The crape myrtle trees were bigger and bushier than I usually see them in Florida – and covered in blooms. Beautiful!! 🙂

At one of the gas stations in South Carolina I experienced the worst heat. It was windy – which usually helps – but this breeze felt like a hair dryer, set on high temperature – blowing in my face. I was really glad to continue my journey – and get away from that.

My last stop was at one of the Florida rest areas. I stepped out of the car, took a deep breath – and the whole place smelled like Florida. I can’t describe it – but it sure made me happy and put a big smile on my face.

The clouds on early evening Florida sky looked like fine silk. The picture below was taken from the car, while driving. I sure wish I had a better image of that exquisite sky that welcomed me while entering the Sunshine State…

And although I feel quite at home everywhere I go, it was wonderful to sleep in my own bed again!
