It was so hot out and the AC was on the blink so we headed out to Ft Desoto on the southern tip of Pinellas County to catch a breeze. LOTS of kites were in the air. We could see them the moment we crested the bridge leading into Ft Desoto Park. We hung a left at the flagpole heading for the East Beach
Watching the kites boarders is always fun and any breezy day one will find a few out there, but never had we seen the number present on Sunday. It looked like it might have been a contest. We parked right on the water, facing the Skyway Bridge, to watch the action. Continue reading

We kept our plans despite a doubt or two, and departing in the PM out of Orlando we headed Northwest.
Oregon was the right decision. So was our Cruise America RV.
