This post is not food related, but the beauty of St. Augustine is something worth posting about. Being that it’s my last real Summer before I embark on my journey into the real world, I want to make the best of it. Thus, a day in St. Augustine seemed like a good “staycation” for the day. Despite the gloomy weather, it was a day to remember.
We started off lounging at the beach, enjoying the breeze and the fact that the sun wasn’t beating down on us. Some people-watching happened, too, which is pretty entertaining in North Florida. After about two hours of vegging on the sand, we hopped in the car and made our way to historic St. Augustine. A half hour of searching for parking later, we began our walk around town. A couple of iced cafe con leches from The Cuban Bakery, a peek into The Ancient Olive (a store containing a plethora of flavor infused olive oils and vinegars), and observing the cannon firing on the gundeck of the Castillo de San Marcos turned the dismal, rainy day into an eventful one.
Behold: our day, captured with my iPhone.
