Thursday, May 18
Very slow day today. We took a scenic route into the Talledega National
Forest. It was beautiful, very green, and there were wildflowers here
and there. The scenery changed several times over the course of 30
miles or so.
We got into Murietta, about 20 miles out of Atlanta, pretty early and
took an early dinner at Outback Steakhouse. We don't normally eat there.
But the waitress showed us they have a gluten-free menu! Mary was pretty
jazzed about that. The GF menu is on their web site. We even had a
decadent chocolate thing for dessert.
Our hotel has wired ethernet in the rooms and wireless in the lobby.
Since our room is located directly above the lobby, I don't need to
plug in. Cool!
Tomorrow we hope to visit the Aquarium here, billed as the largest in
the world, having two whales and two sharks. We'd also like to visit
the zoo here, which has has Pandas.
