Travel Day

Thankfully, it hasn't rained much today! It's been a travel day and we are now in Parkersburg, West Virginia. It's very warm here but dry. We agree that moving in for the night is better in heat than driving rain.

We spent most of the day in traffic and saw LOTS of law enforcement. Ohio must have had all of their State Troopers working today- we might have seen every one of them! 

We had dinner in Grove Port, Ohio at the Family Affair. 

We had exited the highway on the south side of Columbus, Ohio, looking for a place and Ray spotted this one in a strip mall. 

The menu had my mouth watering; I felt like I was back in the south with the menu choices. My meal was fried perch with breaded okra and baked beans made with sorghum.

Ray had catfish bites, coleslaw, and the baked beans.

Of course we both had the delicious, warm cornbread.

Neither of us could finish our meal - but we TRIED and we both overate. This was a neat little place with great service and delicious southern comfort food.

Tonight we are just being lazy. It's still too warm to take a walk - maybe later. Tomorrow we will travel on.


  1. You have to exit those highways and look around for the good food stops....glad you found one! The heat and humidity have move over the south as that is usual July weather.

  2. The only thing I have eaten from your meal is baked beans, cornbread and coleslaw! I have never had perch, or catfish, or okra...but it all looked great! Safe travels!
