Mini Meet in Strawberry Country

Although it poured rain, we still enjoyed our strawberry shortcake with member russj and his wife from the UK! Just a few pics to show how we enjoyed our short time together!

Enjoy the rest of your holiday Russ and Chris!

L to R - Jeff (jbanks15), Christine, Russ russj), Tim (EL_Toro_33809) and Tom (tbrooker)





Yum......



Russ and Chris 'pinning' their hometown!



Christine is the strawberry Queen of the Day



Russ is the king of berries!



Tom (tbrooker) with his gorgeous blue 350, Tim (EL_Toro_33809) and Jeff with his dirty 55!

Just arrived at our hotel in St Petersburg - pouring with rain all the way (just like being back in the UK!).
Great to meet you all and thanks for the delicious strawberry shortcake and a special thanks to Jeff for bringing his '55 out in the rain.

Dang, looks like I am planning on going to Orlando (Disney World) at the wrong time of year. Strawberry Festival looks like a lot of fun and only about an inch away on the map. Wife and I will be there in September.

Russ and Chris,

Very nice meeting you yesterday. Hope the rest of your travels go well.

I did see this morning that the rocket is scheduled to launch this evening. Look to the northeast just after 6 this evening.

Guess the launch didn't go off Tuesday. My son, who lives towards Jeff, called me about 20 minutes ago asking if there was a launch scheduled. He saw the trail towards the northeast. I went out and took this photo. Not much of a trail remaining.....

Chris and I walked out to the end of St Petes pier to get a clear view of the launch. Not quite as impressive as seeing it from the Space Center though. It appears that there is another launch scheduled when we are staying in Daytona so we might get a second chance...
