Day 7 - Broussard to Bonifay

We were up early with Uncle Chris and Aunt Debbie (they had to go back to work 😊 ). Staying with others makes it easy to get the trailer hooked up and on the road. We stopped at Mel's Diner to have breakfast where our waitress, Larissa, was very friendly. We are enjoying talking with others about our trip and Larissa was impressed with our journey so far. After a breakfast of eggs, grits, biscuits, and pancakes we started the long trip to Bonifay. We passed through Mississippi and Alabama before crossing into Florida. We'll be able to put three more stickers on after today. Our route took us over the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge. The bridge is over 18 miles long and goes through some beautiful areas. We also passed over the Mississippi River for the first time this trip and saw the USS Alabama from the Interstate as we passed through Mobile. We reached Anne's Grandparent's farm north of Bonifay Florida in the mid afternoon and had time to pick some fresh corn for dinner. We had a southern dinner of home-grown corn, tomatoes, and green beans, homemade cornbread, and sliced

ham with fresh watermelon for dessert. Michelle learned how to pick, husk and clean the corn. We spent the evening visiting with Anne's Grammy and Papa (and watching westerns) before heading to bed.
