Fun, Miscellaneous Photos

I have been so busy decorating my house for Christmas I don't have a card to share today because I haven't spent any time in my craft room.  I just have a few more finishing touches to complete this weekend, and I will be all done decorating!  Next week I'll give you a Christmas Home Tour....maybe a video?  We'll see.

In the meantime, I did want to share just some fun, miscellaneous photos from our trip to St. Augustine that  didn't  fit well with my travel post themes.  It will give you a little insight into my wonderful, crazy family too!

First up, my son-in-law Jason is a school teacher.  He teaches Latin in grades 8-10,  so when we came across The Oldest Wooden School House in the U.S.A., my husband had him 'act' like an intellectual in front of it.

I'm not much of a car fanatic, but I do appreciate a pretty car when I see one!

The Atlantic Ocean is located right across the street from Old City St. Augustine.  We walked along the shore line for a little bit.  We admired the sail boats and this cute little guy.

I really love the birds Florida has.  They seem to have such interesting, fun personalities.

If you read my Castillo de San Marcos travel post, you might remember me mentioning that Jason was making me a nervous wreck walking on outer rock wall above the ocean.  Here's the pictures to prove it!

They kept assuring me they were perfectly safe and there was a five foot slope of rock between them and the water, but I still didn't like it.

Because it was such a gray, over-cast day, my husband Todd was able to get some great silhouette portraits.

Jason the "dancer".

In this one, Jason isn't really touching the tree, it just gives the illusion of that.

 And Jason the "acrobat".

We also got to see a modern day Pirate Ship sailing by!

And the best sign I saw all day!  My kinda prices!  Unfortunately, I didn't find anything inside.  It was mostly beach dresses and gauzy tops.  Not very practical for my Wisconsin climate.  But it was fun looking!

And that's all I have for you today.  Tomorrow I'm sharing more "foodie" stories and recipes, and next week's Travel Post will be on the gorgeous Flagler College in St. Augustine.

Have a great day!  Amy


  1. Such fun photos! Love those silhouette pictures. Your daughter and son-in-law make such a cute couple!
    I can imagine the anxiety it causes when you see your family walking along things they could maybe fall off from. I can't even stand when the kids lean on a banister looking down on something like a river. My husband of course thinks I'm crazy :-) But there is nothing I can do about it.

  2. This is a great variety of shots but I have to say the 'intellectual' shot is genius!
