On the way
Our area has many of these beautiful tree lined roads.
Hello from Saint Augustine, the oldest town in the US.
The town is only 1.5 hours from Gainesville, on the Atlantic coast. It's a nice little town which attracks lots of visitors for a taste of the old times.
On the way there, we pass by several tiny Southern towns, very typical of the Floridian landscape.
It's nice to stroll the streets lined with the victorian old houses, now transformed into bed & breakfast, art galleries and stores. The smell of freshly made candy follows us while we window shop on St. George Street.
There are several cozy restaurants in town but we still haven't found one with great food worth a return trip.
However, the Manattee vegetarian cafe, although not a picturesque place, offers delicious vegetarian food. We 've been eating there since our first visit to St Augustine, 9 years ago.
There are several sites to be visited: the fort, the oldest house, museum, Flagger college, the campus fo the famous the school for the blind, churches, etc. I'm on old timer, so no pics of these sites.
However, here I share a few random pictures so you can see a little bit of north Florida, which is nothing
like Miami or Orlando. This is the true South, you know?
