We're in Pensacola, Florida and we were invited to lunch with Chuck and Anneke, from the Goldenshoe RV Trip blog.
They choose a great Irish Pub for our meet-n-meal. It was hard to miss (even for me) because they have this parked in front.
It was a great meal, Marti had the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage. (The lighting inside is red, which made for interesting photos).
All over the ceiling are tacked dollar bills. They started hanging the bills in 1977 when the restaurant opened. The first dollar tip was hung up and people have been hanging dollars up there ever since. The waiter said the current value of the bills is $1.2 million! They know that because they have to count every bill annually for tax purposes with the IRS.
Try to grab one of these bills and you'll be answering to this guy:
It was a great time with Chuck and Anneke, who have been fulltiming for over five years now. Marti and I sat there like sponges, trying to absorb all the great tips, places to go and stories they shared with us. Not only was it great to meet them in person, but we enjoyed all the information they freely shared with us. Yep, the bucket list just got longer.
On our way back to the campground after lunch, we came across these pelicans in downtown Pensacola, each one decorated with the colors of one of the U.S. military branches. I really liked this one and thought it would look great on the roof of the Journey. ;c)
