I always enjoy looking at vehicles, Something about me just loves an antique car. And not just because I am an antique, I knew some of them personally before they became antique.
Walking into the park these three were off in the distance.
But this sucker below I have not seen in years, Dad called it a short dog. The Mechanic cuts and shortens the frame for a specific job, some dragging logs.
The old ‘Racer’ was neat, but I have to tell you, this is the first tractor I ever did see with fender skirts.
We stopped by the pavilion for a few songs, I understood the words to one. The guy was pretty good.
You gotta eat at a festival, Sherry had a Small taco then helped me with a taco salad. both had corn on the cob (Not near as good as that fresh Pennsylvania corn last year)
I love to look at plants, Sherry says these are orchids but there isn’t a plant I cannot kill! (except Ivy)
Friend Don worked for the PO. Sherry would not let me get this for him, an old Postal scooter.
Last on the list, a BIG DISH of ice cream churned by a hit and miss engine. My girls had chocolate, I had the best kind, BUTTER PECAN!
We finished up our day with a stroll back to the park, over the Peace River. Looking down from the walkway we could see the boat landing that has one of our daily stops. On up the road you can see the RV Park bordering this road.
That was it for our Pioneer Days outing. Now we head North to Wildwood, where we meet up with friends, Don and Evelyn for the remainder of our time in Florida this year. March is coming up, time to fly kites!
Festivals are interesting, and us old folk need something to keep us occupied. On the road for Wildwood,FL
This was the eye catcher for me at the park, I had never seen one. 1929 Ford Dump Truck!
