Subtitled: Drinking our Way Through St. Augustine on Saturday
On Saturday, Carl, mom and I headed down to St. Augustine in the afternoon and began our day at the San Sebastian Winery. After tasting 6 different varieties, we ended on the roof-top deck to enjoy the beautiful, warm, sunny afternoon while mom had a glass of wine and cheese platter and we listened to some live music.
From there, we went around the block to the St. Augustine Distillery for a tour (since we were running short on time, we didn’t stay for the tasting).
While waiting for our tour to begin, we had some delicious Florida Mules at the Ice Plant bar terrace.
Next, we went to secure some seats at the waterfront for the annual Lighted Boat Parade.
Just a few samples of some of the entries.
On our way back to the car, we passed this pretty tree.
Our last stop of the evening was dinner outside on the deck at Aunt Kate’s on the waterfront.
Imagine…dinner outside on the deck in December! I want Jacksonville to be like this every year!
It was a beautiful day spent in America’s oldest city.
We had a great visit with mom and are grateful for all of the fun things that we had to do. I really can’t imagine why mom doesn’t move to Florida with her love of the sun and warmth. Maybe in a few years when Zack’s bonus suite is available she can be convinced :). Come on down, mom…we’d have so much fun!
