Brunswick to Rocky Mount

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

We're at the Comfort Inn in Rocky Mount. After a nice dinner at Chico's, we settled in for the fastest internet of our trip—over 9Mbps up and down! Not as fast as at home, but pretty damn good. The drive from Brunswick to Rocky Mount was uneventful—fortunately. We're listening to "Dead ...

West Palm Beach to Brunswick, via Stuart

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Before leaving the south Florida area, we hit a couple of banks and went to the Sterling Elliott Museum in Stuart. I'd been to that museum many years ago. They have several rooms of nice art, as well as many rooms of historical artifacts. They have a large garage filled ...

Singing Bamboo in West Palm Beach—Off Key

Friday, February 12th, 2010

There were really good reviews of Singing Bamboo on the Internet. But, I'm singing a different tune. Karen ordered beef Hunan style. It was bland—no spiciness at all. Are they afraid to actually make those asterisks mean anything? It was decidedly lackluster, and the broccoli was overcooked. I ordered scallops & ...

West Palm Beach Area

Friday, February 12th, 2010

We began our outing today by going to Tacos al Carbón in Lake Worth. I'd read that they had amazingly good & cheap Mexican food. They do! I had a shredded beef taco and a steak burrito. Karen had two tacos—one beef and one pork. We're putting TaC onto our ...

We're at the Springhill Suites in West Palm Beach. This is a fairly new hotel—too new for AAA to have rated. The room isn't huge, but it isn't tiny, either. It would be better if there were two workspaces instead of one, but we're making do. There's a small "kitchen" ...

From Melbourne to Fort Lauderdale

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

Yesterday was a travel & cell phone day. We stopped at two art galleries in Melbourne—the Cuba! Gallery and LoPressionism. Both are commercial galleries. The first features only art from Cuba. The owner has a permit to travel to Cuba. So, she goes there to meet with artists, see art ...

From Palm Coast to Cape Canaveral

Monday, February 8th, 2010

We're at the Country Inn & Suites in Cape Canaveral. We're hoping to see a launch tomorrow morning. The Endeavor went up early this morning—way too early for us (4:15 am). But, the first Space Weather Research Network mission in the Living With a Star, or LWS Program of NASA ...

Around Palm Coast

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

Yesterday, we drove from Savannah, GA to Palm Coast Florida, via Fernandina Beach and St. Augustine. I posted pictures on Facebook. Among our more interesting discoveries is that Zaxby's has hot chicken wings that are way too salty, but has a grilled chicken Caesar salad that is top notch. For ...
