Mar 16, 2014 - Heritage Village in Largo - 1

We recently visited Heritage Village in Largo with our fellow camp-hosts, John & Mary. Heritage Village is part of Walsingham County Park. We had already been to one corner of this huge county park last year when we got fingerprinted as part of the process to become camp-hosts. (See our post from May 23rd, 2013) But we didn't have time to explore then. So this time, we were able to walk around the Botanical Garden as well as Heritage Village, which contains houses and buildings from a time-gone-by. None of the buildings are original to the...

Feb 26, 2014 - Jour 9-10- St Petersburg - Tampa

Lundi 24 jour 9 Sommes installé sur le Medeira beach KOA camping, il affiche complet. Il est bien situé, entre la plage et le centre ville de St Petersburg, aussi adjacent à une piste cyclable la Pinellas trail (parc linéaire qui fait 39 milles). Nous sortons les vélos pour petite balade, cette piste a été faite sur un ancien chemin de fer...tout comme on fait chez nous. Après une randonnée en couple, j'irai jusqu'à Largo et Bel-Air ...spécial de retourner dans le coin ou je suis venu souvent avec un ancien employeur (Paradyne) qui était...

Feb 23, 2014 - Jour 8 Winter Garden - St Pertersburg

Dimanche 23 Levé à 6h45 pour voir le match, l'antenne marche superbement....assez surprenant considérant sa petitesse. yes Canada! Après le match, on reprend la route pour St-Petersburg. En chemin on fait un arrêt chez Victor et Louise (ancien collègue de travail). Ils habitent une maison mobile, de décembre à mars, sur un terrain de 2200 sites....oufff, c'est énorme avec un terrain de golf..."toute le kit". Ils sont bien installés et ont vraiment l'air de s'y plaire. On a trouvé un terrain dans in KOA, on sera ici jusqu'à mercredi. On...

May 23, 2013 - Finger Printed In Largo! :-(

As Camphosts at Ft. De Soto, we work with the County, so it is necessary to get all of the common 'background' checks. We drove north into Largo to get 'finger-printed', and the county office is an old house that has been converted to an office. The office sits in Walsingham County Park, and we were able to walk the area and take a few pictures. The grounds are beautiful, with much grass, very mature trees of all types, as well as water on two sides. Mike and Nancy

Dec 2, 2012 - Day 140 - in Largo/ Clearwater, Florida

Today was a very boring day for the journal. We went Christmas shopping. We actually found something for us that we have been looking for for years, a 6 inch square electric fry pan. We also found an egg poacher that we have been looking for for a couple of months. It is for the microwave rather than stovetop but it will do. We also found me some new sandals. As for Christmas presents, not so successful.

Dec 1, 2012 - Day 139 - in the Largo/ Clearwater area

We started the day doing chores. I did laundry and Garry installed the new vacuum, and fixed the plumbing issue. I made use of the vacuum when I got back, it looks and feels much better now. After lunch we drove the barrier islands to check out the beaches from Sand Key to Fort De Soto Park. They are beautiful but not quite warm enough to sit on them today. We came across a street market in Covey that had some lovely craft items. We wandered an hour, did not spend too much, but could have if we had space for things.

Nov 30, 2012 - Day 138 - to Largo, Florida

We travelled a little further north again today to Indian Rocks Travel Center in Largo, near Clearwater, just a little west of Tampa, Florida. This is where we can pick up a replacement vacuum for the bus. The original one died a month ago so I am looking forward to cleaning out all the nooks and crannies the broom can't reach. Once we got set up we headed across the city to pick it up and also some plumbing supplies that Garry needs, and groceries for the next few days. We lucked out on the groceries because our RV park backs onto a Publix...

Apr 8, 2011 - Largo, Florida

This was a nice central location for seeing some of the many interesting sights around Tampa Bay. We began at St. Petersburg near the south end of the Pinellas Peninsula, which forms the west side of the bay. Our primary reason for being there was architectural. We had seen pictures of some of its structures that were quite fascinating. We started our visit with lunch at The Pier, a shopping mall / aquarium at the end of a causeway jutting into Tampa Bay. This was an interesting building because the lower floors are narrower than the upper...

2011-Adventures

Mar 27, 2011 - Movin' on

We left our camp in Punta Gorda and went to Church first and then to the historic district. Ended up at the marina with lots o'shops, restaurants and bars. A bit early for the bars for me(I know some of you are shocked and appalled). Had a great lunch on the pier. Then we motored on to Largo Fl which is between St. Pete and Clearwater. Going to see Susan Huddleson who was in our wedding as a bridesmaid tomorrow and then heading just a bit east to visit with Tim and Lisa (our nephew and niece) and their kids. We are looking forward to both...

Feb 21, 2010 - Wow - Sunshine & Warm!

Yea.....first warm day in....like forever??? So, we had to go to the beach. Looked on the map for some beach less commercial and settled on Honeymoon Island State Park. It is a barrier island smaller and separate from the bigger barrier islands in the Gulf near Clearwater. Warmer means 60 here, so we still wore jeans and packed a warm blankie with the snacks. Scooted over towards the beach and of course, they were having street fair, so we sat in traffic. Drive over the Causeway to the state park and is it just me or weren’t state parks...

Feb 20, 2010 - Special Dance Night

Suncoast Ballroom had their Valentine’s Party tonight. Bernie put on his one suit he kept and I put on a dress and we hopped on our scoot and drove over. Not that many people on the street to flash but I tried my best! Just kidding! Did I mention it was only 55 degrees …which is a tad chilling in a dress, on a scoot, at 45 mph (Luckily, it only takes 2-3 min depending on the light).... We danced...... We avoided the weird guy We ate lots of food!!!. Elissa (the owner) made all of the food. There must have been 140-150 people there. And it...
