Sorry that I haven't checked in before now, we've been pretty busy since we got here. St Augustine is amazing! It rained a lot the first few days but we have a motto we go by when we're on vacation, the weather is the weather, no matter what, we'll have fun.
We picked up some stuff at Winn Dixie and have fixed most of our meals in the condo. It's just as pretty as the pictures showed! We've been out and about exploring, in town, down highway A1A along the coast, to some of the local monuments.
I found out something neat when I was looking up info about the Castillo, St. Augustine's fort. Because I had my paperwork for my permanent disability I was able to get my Access pass. That meant we got in for free and it covers all Federal Parks, Monuments, Memorials, everything! It covers me and two others or a whole car full if you pay by the car.
We've saved back money, and used coupons the condo gave us, and have done two paid things, the Ghost and Gravestones Trolley tour and drove down to the Space Center. The tour was a lot of fun and included a tour of the Old Jail. The Space Center was unbelievable, we got to see Atlantis!
We were a little disappointed because there was supposed to be a launch last night but they had to scrub it for technical reasons, none of us have ever seen one live. They've rescheduled it for today at 7:00pm but we can't afford the extra $75.00 they would want to let us back in. I called to see how much it was. But, that's okay, it was still wonderful and we have lots of amazing memories to cherish.
I've got a ton of pictures that I'll get posted in an album as soon as I can. Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart, for helping to make this trip possible for us. It means more to me than I can ever tell you and I love you guys sooo much! :)
