Mid-state stopover

We are at the Wal-Mart in Sebring, Flordida (map).

I plotted our route from Tampa to the general Palm Beach area, since that's a good compromise between Miami/Ft. Lauderdale and Daytona. That route will take us past the north end of Lake Okeechobee, and Sebring was a good stopping point. In addition to the Wal-Mart, I knew there was an Elks lodge here that could accommodate us if we needed it.

The Wal-Mart was more directly on our route, and we needed supplies anyway. We ended up strolling across the street to Ruby Tuesday for a casual dinner. In a few minutes, we will continue on towards Palm Beach.

In the meantime, we've heard good news that our friend was released from the hospital and is doing much better. Apparently an acute crisis, likely from chemo, that has passed. So airports are no longer really driving our agenda. That said, we still have friends to visit in Ft. Lauderdale and we are still looking into a Keys trip as well as dive instruction, so getting over to the east coast is a fine plan.
