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...


  1. Now your in my stomping grounds ~ we went to school in this county, worked and raised our children here. We loved Fort Desoto and went there alot to camp.
    Have fun

  2. What a great Sunday! The view is really nice from the top of the bunker. Doesn't the time just fly by when you are exploring like that? The street fair looks like it had lots of neat things...all local I'm guessing... with good food too!

    So glad you had great day!

  3. Thanx for the great info on yet another park...

  4. I have heard it was a great park, but have not gotten around to visiting.

  5. Sherri and I were in that area a couple of years ago when we picked up our MH from Lazydays. We loved the area down there but did not get to see much. We had to dead head it back to Texas...but we plan on returning in a few years and stay a winter there.

  6. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a Sunday!
