A relaxing day at one of the Tarpon Springs beaches

Yesterday we had a very relaxing time at the beach at Howard Park in Tarpon Springs, Florida. The beach is on a small island at the end of a long causeway road. For $5 you get a parking pass good until dusk of that day.

We got there about 10:30 in the morning and enjoyed watching several guys wind surfing. My did the gusty winds send them flying across the water! Then it was back to the RV for lunch. This location is yet another example of why we love our 24′ Class C coach. The parking lot had spaces that allowed us to park. We could not have done that with a trailer/truck combo or a larger coach.

After lunch we took a walk along the beach. It was invigorating with the wind, but enjoyable all the same. After our walk Sher went back to the RV and I lingered a bit to take some pictures. We even took a little nap mid afternoon!

After our nap we stretched and did a bit of work online. Then another stroll on the beach to enjoy the sun and sand. When it got to be around 5:30 we headed out back across the causeway. We then took a drive through the mainland park. The trees and other vegetation were striking. This park has a great design. There are several shelter houses that can be rented for parties or family get togethers. The layout is such that each shelter house is sheltered (pun intended) from the view of the others. Privacy is a good thing.

All in all we had a fantastic day. It is days like this that make you grateful to be able to live this crazy RV lifestyle.
