St. Augustine

On Memorial Day, the sister missionaries (Sister McCracken and Sister Beazer) took off on a little adventure. We went to St. Augustine for the afternoon. I had a poor idea of what this place would be. I was expecting a really historical place (hello, it is the oldest established city) with a lot to see. Well, let's just say it isn't quite like that. We got to see the fort, and as far as the historical part of the trip goes, that was it! But we had a great time. We had pizza at this cute little shop, and somehow we have great skill and selected the ONLY establishment in the entire city that is cash only! Who does that? You would then say, well why didn't you use the ATM? I'll tell you was out of service!! Luckily Sister Beazer had some cash and saved our bacon. We walked around a few other shops, enjoyed the beautiful day, and then discovered the best fudge shop EVER. It is called Fudge Buckets. We will DEFINITELY be going back here. If you are in St. Augustine...look this place up!!!

Back to the "history"....

Here is a picture of the fort. I'm cheap and we didn't go inside.
But it's all good because they have some of the canons outside, and that's pretty cool.

When we got back to town, we picked the Elders up to go to my house for a bit. On the way to take all of them home, we witnessed this beautiful sunset. This doesn't do it justice (that's what I get for stopping in the middle of the road and trying to take a picture at warp speed).
It was such a lovely day! I can't wait to do it again.
