A full day in the Auggie Doggie

Nikki and I had our first day in St. Augustine. And it was a loooooong day. We started at the Farmers Market, ate burritos out of a trailer (don't judge us), went to...not one, but two...thrift stores, a fund-raising yardsale for breast cancer, ate dinner at A1A Ale Works and then watched the Night of Lights!

OK...now with the pictures. Starting with the farmers market...it was enchanting! There was even a Pie Baking Contest with proceeds going to the Humane Society.

After the farmers market and the thrift stores, we strolled though the streets of St. Augustine while waiting for the lighting ceremony.

If I ever get to visit ST. Augustine, I'm sure I'll feel there's something missing, that the colors aren't as I thought they would like Seaside Sharon's pictures[:)] or I might aget a feeling of deja vu!
