A Concert!

What a great weekend! Go, go, go yesterday. Then today we chilled out! Wonderful. So here is how it went.

First, I took some early morning pictures of the city from the parking garage at work. Best part of the day...it went quickly downhill after that.

Then work was over and the weekend began. Saturday had all sorts of action. It began with breakfast on the way to a destination. This dining establishment was new to us, but not new by any stretch of the imagination. When we passed by it, I shouted, "Let's eat there!" It was a block from the ocean. So, it had the beachy casual feel. To a fault. It was crusty. It had all the windows open. All doors open. No screens. A dog was laying on the cab of a truck parked in front of the cafe, looking in the cafe at his owner. It was 9:30 AM, and this was a conversation heard behind us. "Would you like a beer with that?" "Sure, why not." D is not one to frequent such dives. I, on the other hand, have a cast iron stomach, so I'm fool-hearty. (Nikki and I have eaten tacos in Tijuana, Mexico from a Guatemalan that brought said tacos out of an alley. Obviously we don't give much thought to our intestinal well being.) I told D it would give him character. I'm sorry to say, the food was not good. (Unlike the alley tacos...some of the best I ever had.) But, you have to take chances.

After we dined, and I use the term loosely, we headed on down the road (A1A) until we got to Fort Matanzas National Monument.

There is a ferry that takes people over to Rattlesnake Island where the fort is. But, when we were there, it was on a some sort of delay, so we didn't make it to the fort. But, we did see it from the dock.

No ferry to the fort, so we took a nice nature walk. Beautiful.

After enjoying the morning at the park, we went home. And we got ready for The Steve Miller Band concert! It was at the amphitheater in St. Augustine. What a great crowd and lovely night for a concert.
