Saint Augustine (2)

Revisiting my pix from our first Saint Augustine stop on our Islander Adventure, I’m reminded of the charming walk we had in the back streets of the tourist district.

Then we met up with our charming hosts for an evening of laughter and fascinating conversation.

The next day we saw the same back streets again, in the context of this little gem of a town.

Soon we were following yet another long barrier island, similar to those on the Gulf Coast yet uniquely Floridian.

Daytona Beach showed off its colorful seaside attractions and wall of tall hotels.

Before long we angled out away from the shoreline and began our long climb to gain altitude for the crossing to the Bahamas! It was so exciting for us to cruise the Freeport shoreline as we descended to that airport marking the third country we’ve explored in Tripp.

Unknown to us then was the fact that most of our week on the island would be based at the big curved hotel near the beach. Also a night in the hotel behind it on this side of the marina. Such great memories from that stay! Maybe I’ll find more pix to share in another post, before bringing you along on my review of the next leg of this Big Adventure.
