Summer Fun

This is our last week of summer break. Open House for both schools is this week and school starts next Tuesday.

So, no crochet, no knitting . . . no work today. Just a recap of our recent camping trip to St. Augustine.

Our tent was big and roomy. We've used it only once before and our memory on how it went up was fuzzy. It has a screened porch on the front, but we weren't able to squeeze all of the airbeds into the sleeping area, so we had to move one of the girls to the front porch.

We took our bikes and enjoyed riding to the beach area, and around the campground, checking out sites for future visits.

We took one day and visited the lighthouse museum. Doc and I started going to St. Augustine in . . . well, 20 years ago when we lived in Gainesville. So much has changed and there are so many improvements that it was like a new adventure for us as well as the girls. We all climbed to the top of the lighthouse—an amazing view.

After seeing the lighthouse, we rode into the city of St. Augustine. We had a great seafood lunch, and then hit the main drag for shopping. Along the way, we met up with one of the old Spanish Guards. That is the Oldest Schoolhouse in the background.

Later, it began to rain, and then it began to pour. We headed back to the campsite to find that we had left the windows unzipped. One of the airbeds was pretty wet, but the rest were ok. We spent the evening reading and listening to the staccato beat of the rain.

The next day cleared and we headed to the beach, where there was much fishing and shell collecting. And there was actually fish catching.

We ended our trip by roasting marshmellows, eating s'mores, and telling a ghost story.

Next week . . . back to work!

Happy Stitching!
