New Journal Entry
It seemed like forever, or since the 6th grade (those time periods are about equal), that I had been to St. Augustine. Boy was I relieved when I realized that the city had a lot more to offer than rock candy -TEE HEE!! Flagler is a beautiful school, and the streets of the city are a great place for a leisurely and introspective walk. We enjoyed straying off the main paths to read the tarnished brass plaques that seemed to pop up everywhere giving us a little more historical knowledge of the city as we paced, block to block. There is a lot of interesting shopping, but I will honestly admit that all we bought was a bag of assorted, homemade beef & turkey jerky's (don't hate). We got some dinner at a place called 'Crab Grabbers' where a man with an acoustic guitar played requests while we ate. I played $5 to hear silver wings, and looking back, it was worth $10. On our way to claim our car from the about-ready-to-fall-down-drugstore, I managed to eat two scoops of gelato and click pictures. It was time to head to Folkston, Ga - one of the entrances to Okeefenokee Swamp. It wasn't too far from St. Augustine, but then again, how would I know because I slept the whole way there. I woke up in the BK drivethru long enough to proclaim that I wanted some chicken tenders, and then ate them once we got to the hotel room. Maybe it is just me, but I found the odd-crown shapes of the chicken tenders to be unsettling. Ummmmm.....sweet dreams.
