a beachy Thanksgiving

 Today we went to check out St. Augustine. It's the oldest European-made city in the Americas, with plenty of interesting things to see. It was fun to wander the pedestrian mall and look at the various old-looking shops.

 Notice the creepy lady in the window... this city also does ghost tours. It's not hard to see why.

 Eating our Thanksgiving lunch of cheese, crackers, yogurt, and juice. :)

 This is the Castillo de San Marcos. We didn't pay to go in, but it was fun to walk around the mote area on the outside.

Chris is  checking out a "hot shot" oven. They put the cannon balls inside before firing them at the ships. I wondered if this is where the term hot shot came from?


Then we headed to Crescent Beach. It was windy, but the kids didn't mind.

 The water wasn't too cold, but the waves were a little crazy.
