Shelby writes: We welcomed Ginger to “Alabama The Beautiful!” She had a blast at the Alabama welcome center in Dothan, where she obtained a postcard for Damon and Carlton.
Ginger went to visit the World’s Smallest City Block here in Dothan as recognized by the Guinness Book Of World Records.
Ginger posed with the Golden Peanut Statue at the Dothan Convention and Visitor’s Center. Dothan is the Peanut Capital Of The World!
Back to my house where we brained stormed in the kitchen to work out the best route for Ginger to take to get to her next stop…Pensacola, Florida! Looks like it’s 143 miles to her next destination! Finally I get to pose for a photo with Ginger before sending her on her way.
She was very excited to be on her way and posed for a few photos just inside the Florida State Line.
She had some good Florida orange juice! And of course she also grabbed a lotto ticket with the LOST magic numbers.
Location: Pensacola Florida
Dates: August 10-17 2009Ginger wanders over to Pensacola Florida to spend some time with her lovely host Rita. Knowing how much fun Ginger has had with aircraft, Rita takes her to the local Naval Air Museum. Pensacola is known as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation”. She poses with a Blue Angel F11-A Tiger and a few bronze statues of air craft carrier crewmen.
Gingers final visit is to the new Plaza de Luna that was just dedicated to celebrate Pensacola’s 450th birthday. From 1559 to 2009. Ginger poses with the statue of Spanish Conquistador Don Tristan de Luna who explored and established a European colony in the Florida region in 1559.
Thank you for a great time Rita.

I was super excited when I found bamboo and Banyon trees,
just like they have on LOST!
We ate at a great place called Archies.
You have to get past the Pirate in order to get in. He didn’t say much.
