Sunday Drive

We decided to listen to a sermon this Sunday and did that instead of going to church.  After that we took a Sunday drive over to the other side of Tampa Bay.
It was a beautiful morning for a drive and our first destination was Fort DeSoto Park Pinellas County Park.  It cost $5 for entry but what a great place!

We drove over to the campground to see if our motor home would fit into the campsites.  Looks like there will be no problem.  Sadly, I did not take any pictures of the campsites.  Although I got a shot of some folks a little way down from the campsite where we stopped.
Next we went over to the historical area where they we saw old ruins and the fortification that grew into a Fort in the early 1900's.
After walking through areas of the bunker and revetment, we walked around and on top of it for a scenic view.
The County Park will definitely be on our 'return to' list as a place to camp and stay a while.

After the visit and tour of the park, we stopped in St. Petersburg at a street fair.  It was quaint and small and fun to see.
After grabbing some lunch, we returned to our campsite in time to see some football.  It was a good day.

That's all for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Thanks for joining us!  Until next time...
