I love road trips

I'm finally home. Well I haven't really been gone. Monday, I went on a road trip by myself since my regular road trip partner had the tail end of a flu. And oooh I have some gooood pictures to share, my lovely peeps. But I have to sort them out so ya'll have to wait. But I did get a couple today. My friend with the flu(say that out loud, really fast 10 times) called me this morning and said,"Let's drive some place far and go some place weird for lunch." Strange places are not hard to find in the state of Florida. I was thinking maybe she meant some old, southern looking small town diner where the locals will look at us like we're aliens. I was wrong.

Just take a look at this. We stopped in here to use the ladies room and look what greeted us. Would you eat here? I'm not too adventurous when it comes to food. I'm very picky. The pickiest you'll ever meet I promise. But my friend Dee loves these weird places. So I always just tell myself, "if it just feels wrong, I'll order a sweet tea and buy some Doritoes on the way home!" These alligators were fake ones not real, stuffed ones, I'm happy to report. They did not deter Dee. I was weary though.



This view from the patio/dock made me feel better. I'll admit the food wasn't bad .....


Still though, someone tell me those alligators would have made you just turn around and walk out so I don't feel like such a restaurant snob!

I would like the alligators much more if they were like outside or something. Inside a restaurant is not right.

I don't think restaurant snob has anything to do with it. I would wonder about a place that has alligators on the front porch to greet customers.

Do they also work at the local Walmart?

I wouldn't be deterred, but then again I'm kind of a freak.
