St. Augustine, Florida
Andrew and I had a free weekend (a rare commodity!) and so took the opportunity to drive down to Jacksonville, FL to visit with his grandparents. After staying a night with them, we continued into the heart of Jacksonville's shopping district to pick up some much-needed dishes on our registry at Pottery Barn. Thank Heaven for gift cards! (And thanks to all who gave them!)
Being that far south in Jacksonville, we started to see signs to St. Augustine, a pretty little colonial town on the coast. It wasn't that much farther, and we'd been wanting to go explore it sometime. So, on a whim, we headed the car further south and made it to St. Augustine. We found a hotel and then set out to find food, only to get caught in a waterfall! Okay, so I'm from Oregon and I know rain...but this was MORE than rain! It was hot, too!
By the next morning, the skies were clear and we did a little sightseeing and coffee shop finding and picture taking before we bid farewell to the quaint-ish village of St. Augustine. We'll be back.
