After a gorgeous sunrise this morning on Jekyll, we headed out the door and drove to sunny (but chilly) Florida!
We had cups of icy cold orange juice at the welcome center.
Dad and Mom held hands…they didn’t know I was taking this picture from the back seat (I was reading my book).
After arriving in St. Augustine, FL, we had a delicious breakfast. Mom and I had sweet potato waffles with bananas, pecans, and caramel syrup.
Everything around me was so beautiful, and the city was bustling today.
We rode on the trolley tour, and got off for a while to do some walking and shopping.
We enjoyed (part of) a free organ recital at one of the big churches.
(we didn’t stay for the whole thing)
We went on a history tour, which was very interesting. This young lady did a very good job at explaining historical facts of Florida and St. Augustine.
I bought a few little things at this lovely shop. Owl earrings!
We enjoyed the stained glass windows in this old church.
Mom and I toured some very old houses, and of course I took a lot of photos here.
I loved every part of prowling around the old grounds and houses.
Isn’t this old ceiling light gorgeous?
This is some kind of old handiwork. I would love to know more about this craft! Dawn, you could bring it back!
I love this picture, with the big plant, RED windows, brick, and green chair
pink building, roses
blue wall, yellow, old sofa, painting
“The Oldest House”
Palm tree like fireworks.
After a delicious dinner, we drove back to the island and arrived at about 9-something tonight. Going to read my book now and get some sleep.
News from back home: my son Ethan got his drivers permit!
Thankful for another day. ~
