LANCASTER,OHIO FORT MYERS BEACH, FLORIDA. A ROAD TRIP ON INTERSTATE 75

     Well we are a few miles down the road and just about to enter the great state of Florida but need a break and some gas and who do we meet, Moses.

We told Moses we were on a wandering road trip and he told us, “just because your wandering doesn’t mean your lost.” He had a couple other pretty good stories and insisted we try some of those free samples. Boiled peanuts , boiling  in the back of his building.boiledpeanuts2 and don’t forget Honey Roasted Pecans. Well we topped that off with a big glass of orangejuice1  Orange Juice and we were on our way. Thanks Moses for your hospitality.

Hi Joe- I remember boiled peanuts. I liked them. But it will take more than that to ever get me back to Florida

What a fun trip! I remember my first time going to Florida and I too loved the roadside stands. They get less and less it seems as you go into the heart of Florida but boy they were a treat for a person who has never been there-like me.

It is such a shame how folks drive now a days. Glad you didn't have any mishaps and made it safely.

I guess oranges is what Florida does best :)

We love to stop at local stands like this and visiting with the vendors is the most fun of all.

We also love to try new foods wherever we are -- But I have to say that boiled peanuts is maybe the one thing we haven't acquired a taste for. We tried them a couple of times and just-- no.
Maybe we just got some bad ones? Maybe we need to try again.

Happy travels. We're looking forward to Ft Myers.
