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

Ella the dramatic statue!
Climbing a tree at the playground on Saturday
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!
