Scenic Route

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.
