July 7, 2018
This 4th of July took my family in many very INDEPENDENT directions. My daughter went to Denver for a concert then onto Colorado Springs to see the mountains with a gal-pal, my son stayed home for work and to care for our beloved Great Danes and my husband took me to Saint Augustine, Florida. It was my first trip with no children in tow. And for my children it was a first experience exploring the world without a parent overseeing.
It was refreshing to go our own separate ways for a few days. And lucky 🍀 me my dear husband thought of everything to make our small vacay fab!
Saint Augustine claims to be the oldest city in the U.S., and is known for its Spanish colonial architecture. It was quaint, filled with interesting history and architecture and had many places to explore. I loved the restaurants, shopping, architecture, atmosphere and the people were a daily highlight!!
We stayed at St George Inn in Saint Augustine. Our room had a balcony overlooking the daily passers and goers but was quiet and relaxing at night. Petey loved going out on the deck to hear people talk to him from below. When we wanted to venture out everything we could want was in walking distance. Sometimes Petey came along for the adventure, other times he stayed in the cool, quiet of our room, where the St. George Inn welcomed with open arms.
Petey handled it all like a pro. With a stop over we have 2 flights each way. He handled the ✈️ airplane travel to many new friends wanting to greet him (face to face) to visiting many unknown venues with different expectations and rules. It was fun to have him along.
