Hillsborough River State Park (site #35)
Thonotosassa, FL

We arrived in Silver Springs Florida on Friday after a drive of 160 miles.  That’s much better than 385.  We stayed at Silver Springs Campers Garden on both Friday and Saturday nights.  It’s a nice laid back snowbird type rv park with reasonable rates and they have lots of activities.  For an older private park, the sites were nicely spaced and I loved the Live Oak trees with Spanish Moss draped all over them.  The laundry area was nice so I washed clothes this morning before we left.  They have a heated pool, bocci ball, shuffleboard, a rec hall and such.

The main reason we stayed there is because it was only a couple of miles from Silver River State Park where our friends Sherry & David and Nancy & Bill were staying.  The state park was booked up for the weekend but we visited with them in the afternoon to get some hugs and catch up with each other.

Sherry and David’s MH Winnona is almost Wanda’s identical twin.  She’s just a couple of feet longer.  They are planning to leave there and come here to Hillsborough River SP on Tuesday.  Maybe we can all go to the Tampa RV Show on Wednesday.  Shortly after arriving here today, we got a call from Linda.  She and Howard came over for a visit and we’re planning to get the kayaks in the water with them tomorrow afternoon.  Of course, we’re planning to go to Lazydays in the morning to see TAWANDA.  I hope she likes us.

Life is what you make of it…to get respect, you have to give it first.

Have fun on your paddle.

I imagine Tawanda will love you as much as you love her :)

Looking forward to seeing your new header when she becomes family :)

Enjoy your kayak trip Monday afternoon. Glad to hear you are going in the afternoon, that will give you the cooler part of the day to make sure sites 11 and 13 are all cleaned up for our arrival tomorrow;o))

Wednesday at the RV show sounds like a great idea and maybe a stop to meet TAWANDA...she is going to love you two!!

How could you leave out the best part of your site in Silver springs, the $2 pancake breakfast!!

TAWANDA is going to say YIPEEE when she sees you two.

We'll be there tomorrow. IF Nancy and Bill don't wear us out to the point that we can't pack up and move. :-)

No doubt in my mind that Tawanda will LOVE you both! She will be well taken care of! Enjoy and hope to see you soon.

Of course she will like you, after all, you gave her the best name ever.

Oh my, there's a critical mass of my favorite bloggers in one spot -- stay tuned for a cosmic event OR the greatest entertainment for me, an envious PleasureWay RVer from North Liberty, IA.
I write to wish you safe travels and fun times but more so to thank you for the entertainment and RV education. We'll be reading with great anticipation about the Tampa RV Show -- enjoy!
We plan to hit the road to Texas for six weeks at the end of February.
