A few days....

One evening I roamed St. Augustine while D did a community service at The Florida School for the Deaf & Blind. There was a little party for the kids and he helped. His buddy for the evening was a clever little boy named Chris. So, while he was helping with the party, I walked downtown and took some pictures.

The first is of a girl named Summer with wings. She was adorable!

Summer was colorful from head to toes. I loved her rainbow skirt and socks!

I saw some really cute valentiney things.

And, oh, how good these looked!

Only the most adorable little street in America! Probably the oldest one too.

Does this not take your breath away? I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the moon. And the fact that I was so close to the water...well, a magic moment.

This was me in the Casa Monica Hotel. What a beautiful building!

This was the next day. Or not. I can't remember the day. I do remember D was in school, and I chose to be let out downtown and walk south. Not good with directions, so don't take the south part to heart.

We all knew that the farmers market would show up! And here it is. Only a quick trip. And a new lens!

I think I need to plan a weekend get away to St Augustines very soon! I've lived in FL for over 20 years and I've never been there!

@Scale Junkie, Oh, you really do need to. It is the most awesome city in Florida. And I have lived all over Florida. This is my fav.
