There was much furious packing all morning. Around 10am Erin came to take us to the airport. We spent ALL day on the plane. My mother and I arrived in Tampa around 11pm and grabbed a taxi over to our hotel.
No real food had been consumed in many hours so we decided to find a place to eat. Since we were only going to be in Tampa one night and got in so late it would have been silly to pay for an extra day on a rental car which meant we needed to find somewhere we could walk to. Lucky for us there was a Waffle House just down the road! Breakfast for dinner was delicious. Very soon after that it was time for bed.
First thing we caught a shuttle ride back to the airport and picked up our rental car. Then picked up some coffee and headed for Wayne's house in Brooksville. Wayne had not gotten my mom's postcard so he was quite confused, shocked and surprised when he saw us. The three of us caught up for a little while and then made plans to have dinner together. My mom and I went to find a hotel in Brooksville for a couple days. The hotel was very nice, free breakfast and internet! After resting for an hour we headed back to Wayne's and headed over to Outback Steakhouse.
We dropped Wayne back off at home for the evening and then hung out at our hotel for the rest of the night.
