Day 11-13 – Saint Augustine, Florida
Learn the ASL sign for ‘old’ ‘city’ ‘museum’
We stayed in Saint Augustine for three days. It is a very beautiful city. The weather didn’t agree with us while we where here. It rained every day around 3 until about 5 or 6. We were looking forward to going to this one restaurant and listening to some music on an outdoor patio but it was canceled every day because of the rain. We spent more time in the hotel than we wanted to as a result of the weather.
We decided to take a trolley tour of the city which we really loved. It is always fascinating to learn about an area especially with such history to it. There was a University there that was originally a hotel and it had it’s lights installed by Alexander Bell. The tour guide said that guest who stayed in this hotel were afraid of being electrocuted by the lights so they had to hire someone whose sole job was to turn on and off the lights for the guests. Can you imagine?!
We also went to the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum and the kids had a blast. They were fascinated with a lot of the things we saw in the museum. Fireese loved learning about Ripley’s travels and the oddities he encountered. We didn’t get a chance to go to Saint Augustine Beach because of the weather but that was okay. I was all swimmed out from our last few destinations. I enjoyed sight seeing and learning about this historic city!
Now we are on to Savannah, GA. I can’t wait, I love this city and can’t wait to explore it with my kids!
