Second Day of Travel to Captiva

We rose early around 5:30-6:00 , dressed, packed the car, and had a quick breakfast in the motel lobby.  Had  waffle(Al), bagel, juice, and coffee.  Remember Room # 232 for next time we stay here.  All personnel are very helpful and friendly at the desk.
After filling up with gas across the street right next to the ramp, we were on the road by 7:30 headed to our next stop in Ocala, FL.  We stopped at a Chick-fil-a for lunch which was the quickest service that we ever had.
This was a picture of a rest stop as we entered the state of Florida.

We arrived at the Best Western in Ocala about 5:00 without any traffic jams or slow ups. Smoothest trip in a long time. Our room # 136 was on the first floor near the exit at the end of the hall.

We had dinner at Olive Garden in the bar as the restaurant was very busy with a long line waiting for tables.  I had Linguine di Mare- Shrimp and mussels sautéed with homemade pomodoro sauce and whole grain linguine and Al had Chianti Braised Beef & Ricotta Gnocchi-twice braised beef in a Chianti red wine sauce served over light ricotta gnocchi in a creamy carbonara sauce.
