Since we only had 250 miles to go to Montgomery, we slept in and had a leisurely breakfast at the motel. We packed up and were on the road around 7:45 a.m. We didn’t stop for pictures, but we did see a few things that would have made good photos. For instance, one town has its water tower in the middle of a small round-about. I did take a shot of Beth gassing up her bike, however.
We took back roads – US-19 and US-82. These roads have some 4-lane sections and are rather lightly-traveled. We had no trouble finding our way to the hotel, the Embassy Suites.
The hotel’s air conditioning wasn’t working at full capacity. We considered transferring to another hotel across the street, but decided to stick it out know the A/C would eventually be fixed. In the meantime, everyone was enduring the humid heat.
After showering we headed out on foot to explore the neighborhood. We had a map of attractions to guide us. Two craft breweries were listed on the map. We walked to both of them, and both have been replaced with new establishments. One is now a craft distillery and the other a pizza bar.
We did find a BBQ restaurant that others recommended, and ate there.
