St. Augustine, For Lights And Eats, Merry Christmas

Tonight, the Blushing Bride and I went to St. Augustine, FL to stroll around and check out the Christmas Lights. We also stopped at Barnacle Bill's for some seafood; a shrimp appetizer followed by a salmon entree.

Another view.

Visitor Center, there is a parking garage in the rear. This makes a great starting place for a walking tour.

A globe on the visitor center's grounds.

Cute train advertising one of the St. Augustine trolleys.

Side view of visitor's center.

Some shops in the center of town.

Queen Isabella's Garden, I have personally never seen anyone in this area but it always looks nice. Maybe that's why.

Tree lights.

Steeples against the sky.

Lightner Museum lighted up for Christmas.

A bookstore on a side street.

St. Augustine is a lot more comfortable on a weekday in December than a weekend in August. It was cool and a minimal number of people makes taking pictures much easier.

Great pics! I am glad you guys got a nice quiet trip in before the Christmas madness begins! Remember last year when we lost Bun-bun in the street? Thankfully, you found him propped up on that light pole! Love you guys!
