We arrived yesterday, Nov 23 here at Bay Bayou RV Resort - and don't get me wrong, it is a lovely place! Couple hundred sites, 3 laundry/shower buildings, several ponds, dog park, heated (85) pool, etc, etc. However, the price is simply outrageous! The only reason we picked this park is because of the proximity to downtown Tampa so we could spend as much time with our daughter as possible. With our good sam discount, and an 'early bird week special' it was $483 for 10 days!!! Whew, we won't be back here again!
On the good side :) we are within 10 miles of any shopping you could possibly want - we plan on going out at 10 tonight to Wal-Mart, there are a couple things I want from there, and tomorrow we will go to a wonderful Mall, called Citrus Mall, that has tons of stores - not really to shop, mostly to watch the crowds!
Today we had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast at the social hall - the park furnished Turkey and gravy, and everyone brought dishes to share. Surprisingly enough there were NO stuffing dishes, and only 1 mashed potatoes that disappeared long before we got there in line - but there was plenty of sweet potato dishes, I made my slow cooker corn dish, there were even saurkraut balls! David was in charge of pictures and he didn't take any :( Anyway, it was a good time with great people and lots of good food!
Happy Thanksgiving to all - and David, thanks for agreeing to this lifestyle - I wouldn't have it any other way!
