Parkesdale Market and Tampa Trip for Winnebago FL Family Reunion

Made a 5 night trip to Tampa last week for the FL State Winnebago Family reunion held at Lazy Days Campground just east of Tampa. A trip to Tampa this time of year (strawberry season) means we had to make a stop at Parkesdale Market in Plant City, FL for our strawberry fix. Thanks to our friends, Ned and Linda, for introducing us to this memorable spot several years ago.

We stood in line 45 mins for our strawberry delights...

The market was also busy processing oranges...


This is the walk-up order window and (below) the assembly line for strawberry shortcakes and milkshakes.


We each had strawberry shortcake and a milkshake...it was our lunch/dinner!


In Plant City, there are rows and rows of strawberries this time of year.

A scene from the Rally Center for the Winnebago Family Reunion. The Reunion had a good turn out of 200 rigs. Winnebagos almost filled the Lazy Days Campground.

During our, Tampa stay we also got to meet our friends, Tina and Arnold, at Taste of Boston for lunch

Lobster rolls to remind us of New England...
