After breakfast we headed out to a refinery of sorts… the TexJoy Spice factory! There we met with the Fertita Family and saw the hands on love they and their workers put into every jar. From there we went to eat some of the best Pizza in town at Crown Pizza before heading off to meet the guys from Gator 911 at their gator refuge.
