The Greek Festival & more

The more in the title involved coffee at the Oasis and then on the way to the Greek Festival, we stopped at the Farmers Market.

What is so special about St. Augustine? It has a Bohemian feel...laid back and relaxed. A city that you can ride your bike to the diner on a lazy Saturday morning. This particular bike caught my fancy. Yellow and mellow.

The Farmers Market was busy. Lots of people. And a few new booths.

After strolling through the Farmers Market, we headed towards the Greek Festival. I have to say that St. Augustine was all a buzz with activity! The downtown area was crawling with people. I loved it.

Soon we arrived at the Greek Festival. It too, was crawling with people. Admission was $2. Pretty reasonable I thought. There were booths with the usual fare...crafts, art, jewerly, and anything else one could fit on a card table. The center of the Festival was the tent for music and dancing. Loved the dancers! But, the lines were at the food tents. Yum. Yum. Yum. Did I say yum?

Had been looking at these pictures in flickr earlier :) I love the quotes added to the pics (where do you get such lovely appropriate quotes?) and the little doodle at the end whenever you add a quote.

@hillgrandmom, thanks! I just find the quotes. I look for keywords that I think of when I see the photo, and search. The doodle I made! Kinda whimsical I thought.
