Let's get this show on the road!

Smile! Retirement is on the horizon!

St. Augustine

We decided on this trip to try using a KOA Park.  I love St. Augustine, so I looked on their site and found one in St. Augustine Beach .

2014-05-13 10.40.53There is a lake in this picture!  Great view!

This is what it looked like from our site the morning we left.  It was pretty packed most of the time, we stayed from Friday through Tuesday and over the weekend it was pretty crazy!  We also got lucky on our reservations, it was a promotional weekend, so one night was free!  I love free!!!

The main purpose of the trip was to relax, but as always, something has to happen to us.  As soon as we checked in and got to our site we started hooking the White Knight up to all of the outlets.  Paul decided that he wanted to move the picnic table to a better location within the table area, so he grabbed onto it and pulled.  Well….wouldn’t you know, it moved directly on to his big toe.  I hear him yell and go running round the corner just in time to see him hold his foot up in the air dripping blood.  I run for the first aid kit and try to fix the mess.  I got him all cleaned up, bandaged and inside with his foot up and then that left me to finish hooking up the White Knight.  Boy, am I glad I pay attention!

 

Onward to St Augustine.  Thankfully the “Oldest City” is only 3 miles from the KOA, and Paul’s toe didn’t swell so much that he was able to put on shoes.  We took the motorcycle into the city on Saturday.  It was really, really crowded, but we managed to find a place to park so we could walk around.  We discovered gourmet popcorn…wow!!  I also managed to pick up hot sauce for the guys at work.  I love mild hot sauce, and the guys at work are always using it, so I went to the Pepper Palace and got several bottles.  I also got some Budweiser BBQ sauce for Paul to try.  I made the mistake of buying too much for the saddle bags, so we went cruising out of the city with me holding a bag of “stuff” on my lap!  I really need to remember to pay attention to what I buy when we are on the bike!!

2014-05-10 14.22.24This is one of the lion statues on the Bridge of Lions.  They are on the west side of the bridge, facing the city.  Lot’s of history here, but I wasn’t able to take a lot of pictures.  The next post will take you on our journey to the winery and distillery.  Mmmmmm!!
