Day Two of Drive Home

Today began Day 2 of our drive home.  We ate breakfast in the Inn's Lobby which was fairly good. Al had a waffle and I had scrambled eggs with cheese and diced ham and a biscuit. Also got a muffin and banana for the road.  The hostess told us about the Hampton Inn moving in 10 days to a new location.

Having left about 7:00, we were only about 30 minutes into the drive when traffic came to a standstill on the highway and we sat there not moving for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. What a bummer! Our route today took us  to I-26W to I-77N and all the way home. The trip should have taken us about 9 hours and 15 minutes. Instead of arriving home before 5 o'clock, we arrived about 6 o'clock.  It was a beautiful day with lots of blue skies and sunshine.  It was a joy to see that all the snow had melted when we arrived home.

We stopped at Misawa on Portage St. for some sushi for carry out.  We ordered Alaskan Roll, Shrimp Tempura Roll and Spicy Crab Roll along with Sushi Appetizer with four seafoods. 

It was a good two day trip home, much better than doing in three days.  I would plan the same for next year without the traffic problems.
