Travel Time to Smell the Flowers
Before leaving Florida, headed to Ohio, our net friend Sandy reminded us, "Stop! Take time to smell the flowers!" Along our way, I and my dog Valentino did just that and captured a view for our friend too.
On the first leg of our journey we stayed overnight in a hotel near Montgomery, Alabama. On our morning walk, Valentino stopped to sniff the scents held in the air of his new surroundings. This gave me the perfect opportunity to snap a photo of a pretty pink flower for our friend Sandy (also known as Rusty2Rusty here at PersonaPaper.)
I smile even now as I picture this moment as one of many memories of our long journey together. Though we traveled alone, we were not alone, for our friends, as well as a few angelic strangers we met along our way, were with us across the miles.
By the way, if you ever find yourself in need of a great hotel in Alabama, I highly recommend the Key West Inn (Millbrook-Pratville location.) The inn was dog-friendly, inexpensive, and spic and span clean.
