This morning has been quiet. Woke up, got ready for the day, ate, and I’ve just been writing in my journal. Daddy had to fix a bug and we’re planning to go see the old city sometime today…

About 11:00 we went over to historic St. Augustine. We started walking down St. George Street, which had a lot of the original buildings, but nothing interesting, except for the original wood schoolhouse – but it was super expensive to get tickets to go inside, so we just looked at the outside. Then we went to a replica colonial quarter tour (and the guide definitely knew his history) which was really interesting. We got to see a shipbuilding exhibit, learn about all the countries St. Augustine has been under, learn about how and why it was founded, see a blacksmith’s, a gunsmith’s, climb the three-story watchtower, and go inside one of the original houses. Everything else on St. George Street was either eateries or tourist traps. We came home about 1:00 to eat lunch and spent the rest of the day watching Victor Borge and My Three Sons.

So there’s the second day! :)

singing off,

    Wow, Aria! You’re so lucky to have gone there! My sister and I both really enjoy history, so we’re both pretty jealous. (My sister saw the pictures and eagerly asked, “Where is that?” That looks so fun!

      I know, right? I’m so thankful to my parents for taking us. We had a blast (even if this day was more boring than the rest of them). YES! History is the BEST! 😀
