Over the Bridge into Largo Time

After four days of fun at the Pleasure-Way Rally we headed north for a visit with mom and dad. On the way we pulled into the Manatee County rest area where we made lunch with a good view of Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The rest areas around the bridge offer lots of good water views. Kite surfing is a popular and fun-to-watch activity along the north shore.
We usually park the van in the parking lot at Mom's church because regulations at the condo don't allow  RV's or motorcycles. This time there was a big event at church so we parked at the condo. Discretely backing into a space at the back of the parking lot we didn't take any more room than many of the trucks and big SUV's owned by residents. Someone did come out and ask about the van, but they weren't complaining–they wanted a tour!
Staying with mom, we are only a short walk from dad's memory care facility. It is always sad to see how Alzheimer's has changed our very creative father into someone who needs help to complete a puzzle made for children. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for him.

Bikes made the five day visit more fun than usual. We got out every day and enjoyed looking for birds and alligators at local parks.

We'll be back here for Christmas in no time.
