Florida & Disney World - Day 5

Warning: Travelogue ahead!
On Sunday, we were looking forward to taking it easy.  We slept in (for as long as the three little girls in our hotel room would allow us) and then made our way to St. Augustine, FL.  This city is the oldest continually inhabited city in the United States.  On our way, we picked up a bag of Florida oranges and some delicious sweet 'n salty praline pecans.  We picked up sandwiches from Subway before we met Jordan and Morgan at a park in the Olde Town where we had our picnic lunch. 

We made our way to St. George Street, which is the epicenter of the touristy part of town.  We walked the street, saw the sights and shops and then walked over to the old fort.  We didn't pay to get in, but it was a beautiful day for a walk nonetheless.

After our short visit in the old town, we headed across the Bridge of Lions to the St. Augustine beaches on the Atlantic Ocean.  It was a beautiful day to wade and swim in the shallows.  The girls had fun and it was a good chance to wear themselves out before we had to make the drive back to the Disney World area.

Next up: Labor Day visit to Tampa Bay and the Beach.
