Temperature 71 Degrees

Time with Family

Strawberry Shortcake with Ice Cream

The anticipation is beginning to build.  A couple of more weeks and we’ll be back on the road.  Oh yea!  Our first trip will be a short, shake down trip to Fort Myers for some work on the front of Elvira.  Once that is done we’ll be rolling north to visit friends and family.  Let the good times roll!

As for today.  Today was a day for family.  We were going to meet Harry and Janet at. . .

The Parkesdale Farmer’s Market.  We’ve been here before and whenever an opportunity arises to go back you can bet we’ll jump at it.

Anyone ever had a Strawberry Onion?  Neither have I but we purchased one just to see what they taste like.  They tell me they are called strawberry onions because they are grown in the same fields as the strawberries – hence their name.

They also had all kinds of other onions.

Watermelons if you please.

Tomatoes anyone?

And let’s not forget the strawberries.

But we weren’t here for the fruit.

This is what we were here for.  Strawberry shortcake and ice cream!

And of course to spend time with Ms Barbara’s brother

One Strawberry Boat and One Strawberry Short Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream.

OK, let’s go for a walk around the market and see what else beside fruit and ice cream that we can find.  How about some signs, such as. . . .

Let’s not forget the plants.

Nor the lawn decorations.

This is truly a wonderful and fascinating place.  There is so much to see and you never know what you’ll find around the next corner.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  It was a super day in so many ways.  We got to spend time with Harry and Janet.  We were able to enjoy some really great strawberries and ice cream.  What more can one ask for?  It was a day sent from God for us to enjoy, and enjoy it we did, each and every precious minute of the day.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!
