Procrastination and Karma

on January 28, 2014

I have been procrastinating about posting about the trip to Frog Creek, so Karma got me…I am sitting here with a wicked case of sinusitis, so I am resigned to sitting in my chair and I am not going to procrastinate any longer!  Here goes…….

Frog Creek RV Resort and Campground is in Palmetto, FL, on the Gulf of Mexico.  It is an interesting place!  When we first got there we were assigned a spot in the front of the park where the long term people live (think sardines).  Paul was told he would have to take the bike off the trailer and then pay for a storage spot for the trailer.  He had told them when he made the reservations that we had a 10′ open trailer and there was no mention of a storage fee.  They said they could accommodate us in the Primitive Area, there would be water and electricity but no sewer.  They have daily pump outs, so not a big deal.  Fortunately, he was directed to the site…anyone that has read this blog knows that I can’t read an RV park map to save my life!  The site was beautiful, uneven but beautiful.  It took until the next day to get it properly level.  But guess what?  Internet access in the far edge of the park was non-existent.  I tried, but it just wouldn’t reach that far!  Not a big deal, it will just make this post longer!

Sasha had a blast!  The dog park was in sight of our site.  If she had been trustworthy, I would have let her go over on her own!  Just kidding!  She made so many friends;  Bailey Rae, Bella, Otis and so on and so on.  She was a social butterfly, which was nice because when we would leave during the day to explore the area, she would visit with her friends when we got back.  Something to look forward to I guess.  Speaking of friends, we made several too.  Bailey Rae and Bella’s mom and dad were right behind us.  We got talking and they told up that they will be staying at Jetty Park at the Port in February.  We will meet them for a visit while they are in our neighborhood.

One of the places that we went was Anna Maria Island.  Since we were in a cold snap, it was kinda cold on the bike, but we stopped at Lobstahs for a late lunch.  Great restaurant, the Lobstah Mac and Cheese was soooo good and soooo rich!  We also went to the Manatee Viewing Center another day.  Because of the temperature being so low, the manatee’s were gathered in the channel next to the Tampa Bay Power Plant.  There were close to 30 of them and they put on quite a show.

We really enjoyed our stay at Frog Creek.  They had a lot going on, activity wise, including breakfast a couple of mornings that we were there.  They also had pool activities, not that I would venture into an outdoor pool this time of year.  I don’t care how heated it is!!!  We will definitely go back, and some of our new friends gave us the names of several other pet friendly RV parks similar to Frog Creek that are in a day’s drive from home.

  1. Ugh, sinusitis is my nemesis! I hope you feel better soon! That’s great you got to see so many manatees, they are truly magnificent creatures. In all our travels throughout FL over the years we have yet to see them, hopefully we get lucky soon. It’s great when RV parks have a place for the dogs to hang out and play, I’m sure Sasha had a ton of fun 🙂

    So they just came automatically everyday and pumped out your holding tanks? Heck, that’s about better than being on your own sewer hookup.
