It was a beautiful morning so we opted to spend the morning walking on the St. Augustine beach. Ed and I both agreed that this beach is our favourite beach in Florida.


There were several surfers out enjoying the waves.

At times we had the beach to ourselves, other times we had to share the beach with these guys (actually a number of people were out enjoying the beach as well)

Finding a good motel/hotel room is a bit of a crap shoot in my opinion. So when we pulled into the hotel at 6pm and the parking lot was empty I really wondered what we would find. I was pleasantly surprised when we entered the room and it looked brand new --- fresh paint, new carpeting, new comforter. Ed was told that the motel's ownership changed two weeks ago. I guess the new owners are freshening the place up.
