We started our day pretty early, got Joon Van situated and paid the Flying J' a morning visit! And to the rescue it came. We had more coffee to choose from than we knew what to do with & when you turn around there's an entire creamer station. Whoever put this together was quite the coffee connoisseur. I don't drink regular coffee anymore so I put together my own concoction of decaf coffee & creamers and it was perfect!

We drove back to Downtown St. Augustine or Old St. Augustine, whatever. We parked in a great spot, huge tree, privacy, we got pretty lucky. We walked around all of downtown. We walked down Avenida St., walking towards the fort to take some pictures. From there we wrapped back up around to St. George Street, a pedestrian mall.

St. George Street is the street that has it all. You can book any tours that you want to take, after all it is the nations oldest city...& one of the most haunted! There are a few fudge & chocolate shoppes and they are the best. As kids, my sister & I would always get the Alligators on a stick, it was chocolate (or white choc. that's what I liked) Alligator molded onto a popsicle/lollipop stick, it was amazing. There are many different and unique stores with pretty good deals. There are tons of places to pick from to grab a bite to eat. We just picked up a map & started walking. We were going to go to Santa Maria's, it's a restaurant right on the ocean, we had never been there before. On our way we walked by this quaint little place that had a nice courtyard & the prices didn't look crazy so we detoured to O.C. White's. I had a very satisfying quesadilla & J' had, what he was craving, a french dip...although they had no 'dip'! Even though the server was a little disconnected the food was good and the sun was out and this was our last day touring, so we were taking it all in. We would be on the road soon, on our way home. Guess it's time to start gathering a plan for the next (longer) adventure!
