St. Augustine, FL

Now we've headed east and, after an over-night stay in Lake City, we arrived in St Augustine, FL on Saturday, 12/27, where we'll be staying for a few days. After getting the RV set up, we drove out to the World Golf Hall of Fame to see what the 'real' golfers have accomplished. This is quite an impressive place loaded with golf memorabilia dating from the founding of the game plus a wide variety of trophies and awards. A definite must-see for any golfer!

On Sunday, we started our tour of Historic Downtown St Augustine at the beautiful pedestrian mall with its collection of unique shops (we even found some chocolate gellato...yum!).
After lunch at Harry's, we toured the awesome Lightner Museum with its diverse collection of antique furniture, glass and other old stuff.

To end the day on a slightly different note, we stopped at the famous (infamous?) Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Museum where we saw some of the more unusual things to be seen plus a lot of...well...dumb stuff.

On Monday, we began the day with a climb up the nearby St Augustine Lighthouse (well, Susan wimped out and watched from the ground) and enjoyed a gorgeous view of the area from the top. After another delicious lunch at Harry's (we highly recommended it), we took a leisurely, scenic cruise of the harbor.
