Weekend with Grampy and Grandma Carole

Although we were not in a hurry to leave Disney World after having such a wonderful time there, we were looking forward to returning to St Augustine for a few more days with Len and Carole. 

It was chilly but sunny and beautiful on Friday, and we went to Crescent Beach, a gorgeous beach just a few minutes away from their house.

Serious sand castle village

The water was very cold - one dip of my toes and I had enough. But not Ella! She was so excited for a day at the beach and very determined she was going to in the water. Lucky for her, Grampy was up for the challenge and the two of them spent a long time out in the water together - I really don't know how they did it.

Time to warm up -- BRRR!

This was really cool - there was a sea turtle who came out of his burrow in the sand

So cute!

On Saturday, we went to Anastasia State Park to visit out the park and beach there

After a nice lunch at a restaurant by the beach, it was time to head to the airport to fly home. 

We had such a wonderful visit and vacation, and we were sad to say goodbye to Grampy and Grandma Carole. We are already looking forward to seeing them again soon!

These are great pix! What a pretty spot and so cool to see a sea turtle in the wild. It looks like a great trip!
