A Girls Weekend in St. Augustine

There is nothing like an occasional weekend away from the everyday responsibilities of life to refresh and renew your spirit. So last weekend Natalie and I packed our overnight bags and took a drive to Florida’s east coast and America’s oldest continuously occupied city, St. Augustine. The old city on the harbor has a Spanish influence and a European feel. St. Augustine is a little touristy, but it makes up for the kitsch with loads of charm, historical architecture, a plethora of good restaurants and bars, quaint shops and friendly people. We didn’t have an agenda or a plan, we just strolled around and enjoyed each others company and the beautiful weather. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite photos with you.

A cheerful cup of coffee on the patio is a lovely way to start the day.

The view of the harbor from our hotel room and the scent of salty air inspired relaxation.

Anyone for a horse and carriage ride?

I love this display of handmade cherry rolling pins at the bakery, and I bought a beautiful set of Laguiole cheese knives from France at a great price!
