I promise I haven't fallen off the face of the earth! I do plan on being back to blogging full time very soon.
Last week my sweet husband took me to St. Augustine for a few days to celebrate my birthday. It had been years since we visited this wonderful historic town and previous trips had been just for the day. Staying several days gave us the opportunity to really explore and enjoy all that St. Augustine has to offer.
One of our favorite days was spent visiting the lighthouse and the keepers house. The house is beautiful and just look at the magnificient oak trees. Make sure and take the tour included in the admission price. The guide showed us areas not seen by those self touring.
Everyone visiting St Augustine must visit the historic town center.
My birthday lunch was at the Columbia, a restaurant that is close to my heart and brings back wonderful childhood memories, The first Columbia restaurant was in Ybor City, just outside Tampa. Growing up this was a favorite restaurant and dad would take me each year for my Birthday. I felt so grown up sitting in this beautiful restaurant sipping a Shirley Temple beside my handsome dad. .
We stopped by the Seafood Festival and everything looked yummy....except the alligator and conch which I passed on!
I hope you enjoyed the tour of St Augustine and a big THANKS to my amazing husband for a wonderful birthday.
