What a great road trip we took in April this year rounding the Gulf of Mexico from Texas to Florida! Patti and I with our dogs made the trip to visit her dad in Hudson, Florida. After arriving we enjoyed a lazy porch rest with the dogs Slick (Black Lab), Jazz and Doris.

While we were there we enjoyed picking fresh blueberries on their farm. This was part of our inspiration to grow our own pepper farm on Padre Island. We named our humble farm "Alejandro Pepper Farm
|Patti, "Lets go for a ride on my tractor"|

Since this is a working farm Patti and I were glad to chip in and help with some yard clean-up. What a nice spread the Curry's enjoy in the Hudson area of Florida. Below you can see that Jazz was in paradise! She just loved chasing squirrels around and other types of creatures.
One of our traditions we started when we go on vacation is to take a day and go fishing. Yep, we were able to get a guide last minute to take us out fishing while in Florida. All details of our adventure are posted at our JustGoFishin Blog
On the way out to Florida we stopped off at the USS Alabama museum to take in some history and stretch our puppies legs. We didn't have time to see the Alabama, but we did see the USS Drum
and took the self tour.
On the way back home after a great visit at the Blueberry farm we stopped in Biloxi and took a shrimping tour. It was a terrific tour in learning more about shrimping. They even let us bring Jazz and Doris along for the boat ride.
We sure had a great time traveling with our dogs to Florida and back. A great week of relaxing while traveling the highways along the Gulf of Mexico.
