Goin’ coastal before and after the TaxSlayer Bowl

At the TaxSlayer Bowl, Jan. 2, 2015So, here we are.  Big Orange Fans.  Delighted that the University of Tennessee Vols made it to the TaxSlayer Bowl on January 2nd, 2015, in Jacksonville, Florida and beat the Iowa Hawkeyes 45 to 28.  Go Vols!

But in our usual “let’s-see-what-else-we-can-see-along-the way” mode, we decided to cruise the coast a bit from Tybee Island down to St. Augustine and then over to Amelia Island stopping in Jekyll and St. Simons along the way.  After all, getting there is half the fun, right?

So, join us on our brief but jam-packed tour before and after the bowl.  We’re calling the series “Coasting” — ’cause that’s what we did.  Cruised the coast with eyes wide open.  It’s a series you don’t want to miss.

    Why the name TaxSlayer?

  2. Peggy was with you on rooting for the Vols. I had the pleasure of rooting for the Ducks, up until Ohio. 🙁

    Reminded the color of UT Austin 🙂

    • There are several oranges out there, for sure. Tennessee folks are particular about their shade of the bright color — and we’re forced to look for just the right orange before purchasing any clothing! Just part of the patron business, I suppose! (Thank goodness I look good in orange!)
