Findlay, Ohio

It rained hard most of the night in Cave City last night. In fact, I was wondering if we might not be better off sitting an extra day in Cave City instead of driving in pouring rain all day today. But as luck would have it, the rain eased up soon after we got up. I took Teddy for his morning constitutional before hooking up the Vue and having a bit of breakfast. Teddy wasn’t too enthusiastic about being out in the rain but that didn’t stop him from chasing a few birds along the way.

We finally hit the road around 10 am, northbound on I-65. It rained off and on all day and was quite a bit cooler than it was yesterday. Looks like the shorts, t shirts and sandals have been replaced by sweat pants, socks and shoes. We continued onto I-71 and eventually hit I-75 still in Kentucky before crossing into Ohio. Other than stopping at a few rest stops to let Teddy stretch his legs, we kept motoring all the way to the Flying J at Beaverdam, OH. After that it was just a short 20 miles north to our stop for tonight, the Cracker Barrel in Findlay, Ohio.

We arrived a little later tonight than we usually do when traveling. We pulled in at 5:30 pm and found the RV/bus parking spaces at Cracker Barrel all filled with cars. Chris had called the restaurant while we were on the road and the manager told her we were welcome to stay overnight in any of those spots. We had a great supper at Cracker Barrel and the manager apologized for the cars parked in the RV/bus spots. Apparently it happens all the time. We managed to squeeze into five car spots along the curb and are all tucked in for tonight.

Interestingly, there is a Tim Hortons coffee shop right next to Cracker Barrel. We popped in there for a coffee after supper and taking Teddy for a stroll. The restaurant also doubles as a Cold Stone Creamery and all the people in line were waiting for ice cream. The coffee shop part was very small and the selection of doughnuts and coffee available weren’t very good so we passed on coffee there and just went back to Phaeton Place for our evening coffee. Heading for Canada in the morning.
