Our First "Just Us" Get-Away
Beacher's Lodge Oceanfront Suites, St. Augustine, Florida
(click on pic to expand)Ten years ago we honeymooned in St. Augustine and stayed at the Bayfront Marin House, a wonderful bed and breakfast overlooking the bay. For our 10th year wedding anniversary we headed back to St. Augustine area but this time we wanted a beach front experience. We searched for bed and breakfast options but they were all booked up. No worries, we found a condo style place that looked great.
We were not disappointed! The room (#410) was perfect for us with perfect views. The sights and sounds of the ocean filled our room and the beach was just a few steps away. We enjoyed food reminiscent of our honeymoon (seafood dip) right on the beach at the South Beach Grill.
On our honeymoon we explored the Castillo de San Marcos Fort and this time we took a ferry over to Fort Matanzas. We explored the fort from top to bottom. Then we enjoyed a nice stroll holding hands on a nature trail near the visitors center.
On our way home we stopped at a roadside fruit stand and discovered another u-pick strawberry patch. Freshly picked strawberries in hand we arrived back home to a wonderful reception from our daughters and great friends. They decorated the house and had lots of surprises for us. We are so very thankful to our wonderful friends Tricia and Keith Sagers for keeping our girls super happy while we were gone.
