Off to Florida (Well, Piqua, OH)

Yesterday, for the first time ever, we ate Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant. (Well, we did go to a Thanksgiving luau once on Maui when Michigan was playing in the Maui Invitational.)

We went to Minerva's, and it was very nice. No yummy dressing, but great desserts!

This morning we go a good early start on our road trip to Florida. There was snow in the air when we left this morning. Luckily, we too I-75 south instead of taking 127 to Jackson and across on I-94. There were accidents, one fatal, and major backups on 94 this morning. We missed it all, and breezed right down US-23.

The motel in Piqua was really interesting. It was actually part of a mall - there was a door to the mall right in the lobby of the motel! Another first.
