Day 84 – Gulf Coast Drive Along the Florida Panhandle

Day 84 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Today was close to an 8 hour travel day from Southeast Florida to the Florida Panhandle in the Northwest.  I think in the last five days I’ve donated at least fifty dollars to Florida tolls.  I imagine I could have purchased the Sunpass and paid for it through reduced tolls already!  That way, I could have avoided the “change provided” toll plazas as well!  So far, Florida and New York break the bank in the toll category.  On the positive side, at least I saw a bald eagle wading in a small marsh alongside the turnpike.  I sure would have liked to snap a photo!
