We decided to take a mini vacation to St. Augustine since I'm going back to work on the 10th. We usually try to make it up there about once a year but haven't the last couple of years. It's the wrong time of year to go, tooooo hot but we managed to figure out what to do and had a really nice relaxing trip. We walked around the touristy part of the city Wednesday night when we got there.
Thursday we went to the beach which was really nice.
We went to the Conch House restaurant for lunch/dinner. If you ever go to St. Augustine I highly recommend this restaurant and make sure and sit outside. The restaurant is on the water by the dock. Also order the conch fritters. Not something I would choose looking at a menu. I've never had conch and don't much care for fritters but these I could have made a meal of - absolutely delicious. Then we hit a couple of antique stores (I restrained and bought nothing)an old bookstore, and stopped lastly and bought a couple of yummy delicious homemade cupcakes, tiramasu and lemon. And believe it or not we went on a ghost tour that evening. Again, not something I would normally do but it was very interesting. A lot of history is included in the tour.
Yesterday we drove around and photographed the Presbyterian church, absolutely beautiful, and some of the old homes. Driving back we stopped at Marine Land, a place we took the kids when they were little. It's really changed alot kind of sad.
But the beach around it is really pretty. Nice trip.
