On Friday, my husband and I made a a quick getaway to St. Augustine, Florida. It is only about an 1 1/2 hour away. When we left we did not have a clear plan or destination.

After a quick breakfast, we decided that we would visit and stay at St. Augustine again. I called Marriott rewards and turned in my voucher for a free night. We checked into the room and then took of for the “Old City” and the “San Marcos” fort.

We spent most of the afternoon walking around downtown and doing some window shopping. The streets were not that crowded and the weather was cool, low humidity and breezy.

It was a great day to just relax and enjoy the sites and clear my mind. After a quick dinner, we continued to stroll around the city. It was getting dark and the “ghost hunting tours” were out in full force. We did the “walking ghost tour” last time we visited St. Augustine. So we did not join in any tours officially.
In fact we did our own ghost tour. The cemeteries were our first stop…
But we did not capture any “orbs” or unexplained ribbons of light. It was not for lack of trying.
We then headed back to the fort, which is not open for you to go in but you can walk around the fort and explore it……in the dark if you dare.
We walked the perimeter and did not see any ghosts of those who lived there previously……
But we did see these two “shadow figures” along the front wall of the fort

It was a great time and we are both ready to face the new week with its challenges. One of which is meeting with Hospice to talk about care for my dad. Yep…. it’s definitely going to be a challenge.
