Top Fun Spots of St. Augustine, Florida

IMG_7321

St. Augustine, Florida is a well preserved city.   Along the Matanza River which is the main entrance into St. Aug., my friend and I saw extensive marsh areas where habitat can live.  As one who enjoys nature, I found this body of water a must see.  What makes it so interestingly dark is that its name actually means killings!  Since St Aug. is the oldest surviving european city, many battles took place where many people were slaughtered.  Chaos was nothing new to this area in its over 450 year history.

Emotional Dark Picture

Friday is here and my weekend begins. It’s becoming my favorite time like I was a kid in school.  This photo was taken with a great friend by my side.  We never know who may touch us when given a chance. #friendship101 

Leavenworth, WA

What a treat to live in one of the most beautiful places in America. I have called Washington State my home for almost all my adult life. Leavenworth is a small community two hours east of me. I typically drive highway two over Steven’s Pass when I take house guests to enjoy this city. As one reaches this destination, you are overwhelmed by the sheer majestic views of a once logging town and center of the railroads.

Leavenworth has since become a huge tourist’s travel spot for those wanting to experience the European  lifestyle. The town of 2000 becomes wildly alive on weekends. 


It truly is a happy place to feel alive in a town that takes you back to a more simple life. Get this. The town wax incorporated only a little over a 100 years ago.


I am not one for big driving trips, but this one is a must every time I get a chance to take a friend or family.


Where else can you find a prehistoric nutcracker!!!!


Happy travels everyone!!
