We are already South for the winter, hallelujah! But we made the decision to go further south to get some beach time.....
RV parks in southern Florida are VERY VERY full, so we were fortunate to even be able to park at all. The spots are small most of the time, so no room for our big 24 ft pull behind trailer. We left it at dad's and hit the road, that meant no garage for our car, or bikes. Time to drive!
2 hours later, I was thanking the Lord I don't always have to follow behind our rig. 3 hours later, I was calling Dale to tell him I was never following him again.
Haha, that man does NOT slow down for yellows! Or give me warning when he exits!
Thank goodness we made it all in one, well, 2 pieces.
First stop, to see our friends and team members at the oh so awesome, Bay Aire Rv park! That place is the most precious little town of lovely people you ever did meet.
And of course, we got to see our beloved Mr & Mrs. B!!!!!! We hung out, did classes, swam, went for walks and just enjoyed our time with them.
The RV park provided us with free tickets to the Tampa RV show, the largest in the USA! We met dad, Drea and Miss Harley there for a day of fun. Dale and I have always loved to walk through RV's, even when we were courting, we'd go and dream of someday. :)
This thing is a big deal. The lines to get into the fairgrounds to park was a mile in every direction and the ticket line over an hour wait. We were sure thankful for our freebies so we could walk right in!
There were musicians, magicians and all kinds of neat things to enjoy! Even a sneaky bush man scaring everyone that walked by.....
According to my phone we walked, 10,000 steps that day! Phew. Felt good to sit and rest.
I DID find my dream RV, now to save up for it..... ;)
A Foretravel with a gorgeous layout and theme. Funny, its the color scheme of our apartment. LOL! Guess I really like that look!
And those FLOORS!!!! Totally drool worthy......and the drool won't even show! ;)
OR dirt, or stains. RIGHT, PAXTON CLAY?!!!?
Case in point, the carpet vs. Paxton and the applesauce.
It's safe to say the Paxton Applesauce team won.
Sigh. Gotta love it!
Anyhow, after a long hot day in the sun, we decided to stop at our FAVORITE restaurant in the area, Frenchy's.
Holy cow, are their Fire Island Shrimp Tacos AMAAAAAAZING!
We leave TONS of Trip Advisor reviews on our trips, so that when we are in the area again, we can remember what we liked and what we didn't like.
This place is so super cute and delicious too. Great atmosphere! HUGE portions.
And just like that, our time in Palm Harbor was over.
Thank you, Mrs. B for the pool pictures and RV pictures! Love you! Can't wait to see you all at Bay Aire RV again. We had a wonderful time!
