02.02.14 The Atlantic Ocean at St. Augustine!

The weather on our first evening here in St. Augustine was very foggy and wet, yet we strolled over to the Atlantic Ocean to get our first view! Russ and Annie’s house is in Treasure Beach right off of A1A highway and they have this pathway directly to the ocean.

A few folks were out on the beach walking their dogs or riding bikes on the beach.

The pictures we took aren’t filled with sunshine or even that clear because of the fog.  That will be another day’s pictures, but we wanted to share these with you so you’ll  know we’re finally here!

I collected a pocket full of pretty little seashells to share with Madisyn in our packages we send to her along our journey.

On our way back to Dora we came across a cute image someone created in the sand of a smiley face with words underneath.  The only word still left was “Life’s” and I’d think the rest originally said “is a beach”!

Life on the ocean must be delightful and freeing and we are definitely going to enjoy our time here experiencing some of that.

redTrainTours-logoMonday – Wednesday we’ll be sightseeing on the Red Train that goes all around St. Augustine stopping at many attractions along the way for us to get off and explore.

That’s a little peak into what we’ll be doing here and I look forward to sharing it with you guys as we see it all!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
