Four Days In Plant City : Trains/ Large And Small

Danny And I were in Plant City for 4 days and 3 nights.
We left our house around 10:30 AM Saturday Morning, November 30th. If it would have been up to me, we would have left the night before. LOL, Probably not though.The traffic would have been a lot worse than it was Saturday morning. Thanksgiving Weekend is not the time to travel for a relaxing trip.
I don’t remember Danny ever getting Thanksgiving Weekend off. He always works Thanksgiving, Friday and the weekend.
It was also a first for me. I didn’t volunteer at all.I didn’t even spend the day there with Danny like I usually do. He ended up WORKING. They had a few problems that needed to be taken care of Thursday morning. Not the relaxing morning it usually is. So I stayed home.
It tooks us almost 2 hours to get to Plant City on Saturday. Traffic was terrible.
The first thing we always do when we get to Plant City is head to The Strawberry House.
We had hoped that we would see a train on the way to the Bed And breakfast but no such luck. The first one we heard was as we were walking up to the door.
I can’t believe that I didn’t take a photo of the house from the outside . Not once in the 4 days we were there. That is UNUSUAL for me. I always take lots of them.
What is even more surprising. Danny never did either.
I would post a photo of it from our last trip IF I COULD ACCESS it on the computer. Having trouble finding the pictures. ALBUMS not showing .
I will try later.
Oh Well, this post isn’t about the Strawberry House anyway. Except for where it pertains to trains.

Brian AKA JAWTOOTH
Just having fun.
Watching Train Videos Online.
I only ORDERED TAKEOUT THE FIRST NIGHT.
I ordered TONS OF SUSHI And DANNY HAD 3 DIFFERENT MEALS.
I had enough SUSHI for SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. I PIGGED OUT ON IT.
Danny had enough food for all 3 nights and plenty to take home.
Sunday Night In The Henry B Plant Room
The Train Viewing Platform In Plant City, Florida
It was unusual not to see people there. Sundays and Monday were quiet days.
The town shuts down.
I didn’t take pictures of the Train Depot this time, except from this location. Sorry about that. We never ventured over there this time. Not sure why except Danny was really into videoing the trains and didn’t want to miss any.
CSX headed to Tampa.
Or sit a spell on the bench .
Headed West To Tampa. Danny videoing.
CSX Headed North
View Of The Museum Area From The Whistle Stop Cafe. CSX Headed To Tampa.
It’s IMPOSSIBLE to Really RELAX AND ENJOY a meal when there are trains coming.
When Danny WASN’T Videoing the trains he was texting another RAIL FAN.
The Whistle Stop Cafe.
An Amazing FAMILY OWNED cafe.
Fun.
There is a small HO Scale Train Model inside. Plus an O Scale Engine runs above us.
Great viewing from 2 sides of the building. Lots of seats. An easy walk to take even better photos.
Danny just WAITING.
I got comfy.
Comfy And In The Shade.
It was 84 degrees.
Sorry, Not the best photo. I love the graffiti.
My good camera for fast photos broke the night before we left.
Crews were working on the tracks and equipment Monday and Tuesday.

I took time away from watching trains. I left Danny at the platform and went shopping.
Spent almost $200 . What did I get? I went into an Antique store. Walked out with baskets for me. Christmas ornaments for our Christmas Tree. Cookbooks and Books. PLUS A WHOLE LOT OF TRAIN STUFF.

Danny spent almost ALL OF HIS TIME WATCHING TRAINS OR PLAYING WITH THEM. IN BETWEEN TIME HE TEXTED ANOTHER RAILFAN. THE WHOLE TIME WE WERE THERE. NOT QUITE THE ONE ON ONE TIME I HAD PLANNED ON.
I wanted QUALITY TIME. I REALLY WANTED ROMANCE. CUDDLE TIME AND SEX.
Briefly had the CUDDLE TIME. Not sure he remembers what SEX is.
FAMILY TIME. Just the TWO OF IS. BRIEFLY.
