I love road trips...especially a spontaneous road trip....Took a few days and headed to the east coast of Florida to St Augustine. My Mom, Chelsea , Weston and I had a wonderful time seeing one of the oldest cities in Florida. We had no set plans just acted like tourist and spent the days site seeing and shopping. Doing the tourist thing is tons of fun. We did celebrate my Mom's birthday on our first day of the trip.
We started out our trip with a stop in Mt Dora to check out down town, do a little shopping and have lunch with my friend Terri.
This is Terri and I in front of this great little boutique on main street in Mt Dora. Chelsea and I had a fun time shopping in this store. I got a great little handbag and Chelsea got a adorable white top.
Our next stop was St Augustine....we got a hotel close to the beach (never made it to the beach though).Spent lots of time in old St Augustine. Love seeing all the history here.
Spent the morning climbing 219 steps up the Light house and taking in view from the top.
Then found another great shop with some very cool things. Chelsea was in heaven and so was I.....cause they had a red painted wall on the outside of the store, which made a great spot for a photo shoot. It was so Elsie!!!
Later we spent some time exploring the Fort. Weston really enjoyed this.
Spent a couple hours in town checking out the tourist trap shops and the oldest school house.
Later that evening after a wonderful dinner at Columbia's we headed out on the Ghost and Graveyard tour. It is a night time tour that is hosted by the local College theater students that takes you around town to see the old hospital, drug store, and old jail while telling ghostly stories and trying to scare you. It was lots of fun. I think it was my favorite part of the trip. This photo is Chelsea with one of the "Ghostly Spirits" after the tour.
The last day we headed back to that cool store for another outfit for Chelsea. Then we hit the local surf shop where Weston picked out this entire outfit....from head to toe. He was so cute. had to try it all on and show it off. I snapped a few more photos on the red wall.
What a great time...so much to do there. Think we will have head back again soon.
