I had a great time vising my godson, Brandon, and his partner, Lauren, in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Brandon told me the pure white beaches were created from quartz that the Apalachicola River carried down from the Appalachian Mountains.
It was interesting to find they don’t drink their tap water.
The return Greyhound bus trip was a trial. We left Fort Walton Beach at 9:00 pm Wednesday, and I got to Indianapolis at 11:00 pm Thursday. The bus from Nashville was 2 hours late. The buses are not in the best shape, and things aren’t very well organized in the terminals. This is disappointing for someone who promotes mass transportation. I can’t help but think of what an amazing mass transit system we could have if we invested a mere 1% of the military budget in public transportation, instead.
