Still a little too cool to kayak, we packed the backpack and went hiking the Hillsborough SP Trails. Sherry and David did not join us as they had an important project…CHERRY PIE!!
We hiked to the rapids and then did the Hillsborough Section of the Florida Trail. All toll, about 6 miles.
We arrived at the rapids which are very small.
We headed back along the river towards
the Hillsborough Park section of the Florida Trail.
The 1,400 mile Florida Trail,
is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails in the United States.
Does anyone know
what this large knot is on the palm trees???
Just about halfway, guess who we ran into!!
The PIE BAKER!!
They assured us the pie was finished
ready for transport to Gin and Syl’s new motorhome.
We did not see a lot of wildlife, but the weather warmed up perfectly to almost 70 degrees. The hike felt great until the last mile of so. Nancy got a little twinge in her foot and the pack on my back started to get a little heavy. Maybe it’s because we are getting older… NAH…that can’t be it ;o)) Anytime we end up walking over 12 miles, Nancy calls it a “Disney Day!” WHY??? Because we typically walk that far at the Magic Kingdom or EPCOT.
We got back to the campground, had a little lunch and about 3pm, all of us drove over to Lazydays to see Gin and Syl’s new motorhome. We got a tour of the coach and the Crown Club.
Bill, Gin and TAWANDA :o))
After a tour of the inside and outside.
(Click here to see the outside photos on yesterdays’ blog.)
We got a tour of The Crown Club
which is the upgraded services provided to
those customers who purchase the more expensive RVs.
Tawanda’s current parking spot.
We walked up the street looking at all the new rigs.
At the end of the street is The Crown Club.
Downstairs are lounges with TV, puzzles and magazines.
Upstairs is another lounge, dining room and bar.
When you stay at Camp CC,
they want you to be comfortable while your rig is being work on.
They make sure that your rig is perfect before you leave
that you are taken care of while you wait.
Yes, they even provide 3 meals and drinks
everyday of your stay except Sunday!!
Tomorrow’s Lunch Menu
NOW IT WAS TIME TO CELBRATE!!
David’s Homemade Cherry Pie
The pie was awesome!!!
What a SWEET way to christen TAWANDA ;o))
Never had a better pie…
David you rock!!
We got back to the Van about 5:30pm.
Both of us were tired!
By 6pm, we had a sandwich for dinner,
by 6:30pm we had PJ’s on
by 6:45pm it was “Goodnight Irene!!”
