Did you get to go somewhere for the long weekend? No? We decided we should drive down to
South Florida and
spend a few days with dear parents and siblings. On our way there, we stopped for a night and a
day in St. Augustine--a lovely exotic little town where history and century-old
ghosts know how to come alive in red-brick lanes that lead them to ancient
churches, and in dwellings and forts where soldiers still walk the grounds.
We love the old-fashioned atmosphere and attractiveness and charm of
Its oddly picturesque houses, historical sites, old 'casas' and 'empredrados' and peculiarities...
A charming and unusual town in an interesting, pleasing way... where time mingles with moments; the yesterdays with our todays...
Lovely balconies and rustic facades...
I had to stop at this little shop for a sip of charm, of course...
And take with me one or two things...
An adorable, quaint little stop called Gypsy Moon where you'll find the cutest gypsy/boho dresses, skirts, jewelry and such...
We enjoyed seeing all the Byzantine style frescoes in this unique shrine and museum dedicated to the first Greek colony in the US... established in 1768, can you imagine?
I took this pictures especially for one of my readers, our friend at "Housetropical", in
, because I know how much she likes old
crosses and religious artifacts... I hope you like it, my friend! ;) Costa
I bought this little black crocheted poncho at the Gypsy Moon, put it on and continued our lovely stroll though the city until our departure, around noon.
It was super hot and humid... but we really enjoyed our little stay. We had some perfectly lovely days visiting with our parents later. My sister Lissette and her husband drove a few miles themselves from
Vero Beach to meet with us for those few
days... what a fun and blessed
days. We're now back home to our little
white cottage. A lot of things to do
outside, but that will have to wait until tomorrow...
It is so nice seeing you all again!
