Are y’all ready for part two of our St. Augustine trip? I first want to say thank you for all the lovely comments you guys left on part one. It means so much and I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
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!
