For dinner we went to Mellow Mushroom, which had something everyone could eat.

Thursday – Jacksonville University

Candy Cane Lake at the University of Northern Florida. I was disappointed not to see an alligator during our trip.
Golf cart tour at Jacksonville University. I guess there was a lot of ground to cover.

Travel Day

No pics from today. We were driving all day – from 9 until 11. It was a long one, but we finished in warm, muggy Florida. Highlights of the drive included Buc-ees, rain, and Chipotle – one of the few restaurants where they have something Lucia and eat and enjoy.
