#SOL16 Day 17 Sometimes It's the Small Things

#SOL16 Day 17

Sometimes It's the Small Things

We woke up early this morning hoping that the weather forecasters were wrong. They were yesterday. They had predicted a cloudy day with no sun!! Yet we were lucky and had a wonderful, sunny day at the beach. Today they were predicting rain!! Lots of it!! And they were spot on!! So, instead of getting to spend a second day at the beach, we packed the car and started heading towards Atlanta. It rained all day. And a drive that was only going to take about 4 hours ended up taking the whole day. But...we were still able to find some things to do when there was a break in the weather. We found a cute little fruit stand and was able to purchase local great Florida fruit!! We happended upon a peanut factory in Georgia and was able to pull off the road and watch that process!! We drove along roads where wild cotton was growing!! It was a day full of driving and stuck in the truck but the small things still made it a fun day!! When we finally arrived at our hotel this evening, I checked my Fitbit and nearly flipped out!! I had only accomplished one mile. So I put on my tennis shoes and it the pavement. I was able to get them done and then joined the hubby in the lobby for hot cocoa and cookies.  :0 Not a bad way to end a day!!
Tomorrow we spend the day in Atlanta!! As Scarlett O'Hara would say, "Tomorrow is another day!!"


  1. What a delightful day in spite of the rain! Or maybe, because of the rain!

  2. That sounds like a great day! Sometimes when plans go awry you have to look for the silver linings. You did a great job of that!
