So I'm done talking about food on here for a bit. Today was really great. We don't get to be just tourists very often, even though we are always travelling. St Augustine is the oldest city in the US so you see a lot of history. We went into the historic part of town and walked around for a couple of hours. Of course, they have all kinds of goodies for the tourists.
I had fun being a tourist, and even had fun getting caught in the rain. When it rains here, it does get busy with it and the light shows are cool too! Debbie was joking that we were about to go through a Fringe portal because of the lightning flashes and flickering. Seattle doesn't do storms like this. Really, I think I heard thunder once in the 15 years we lived out that way.
We are heading back to Jacksonville tomorrow and will be hitting the beach with some friends on Saturday. Church on Sunday, then ministering to some folks on Monday. All in the life of an urban missionary.
I would like to come back to St. Augustine and take the tour bus and see all the different stuff with the history behind it. The other thing I want to do if we come back is visit the alligator farm. I'd like to visit the Everglades, and see them in the wild, but it might be a while before we get that far south. I'll just have to settle for the hundreds of gecko lizards I've seen on my walks! I will mention that I was a bit astonished to see a lizard leap this morning. I thought they only crawled!
