We left Orlando together, Paige returning home for another few weeks, and I was scheduled to be in Tallahassee on Monday. With plenty of time to make it, I decided to stop here on the way. With no real plan, and being a Sunday, I exited the highway leading into downtown, and just off the ramp was a FD.

It was early evening, and I was beginning to understand that this was a good time to arrive at a FD. It is dinner time, and there is usually always something cooking. I was welcomed to relax, and have a bite to eat. They were pleased to be part of the banner project, and called other area departments nearby for me to stop at on the way back to the highway.
