Pambling Roads ~~ Florida

 

Our travels have brought us all around the "lower 48". We've tried to zip zag and circle through and around every state we could. Florida was where this endeavor started and Florida is where it is ending. However, this isn't over. I've received several emails requesting more pictures, or asking why I don't have more pictures. What I have decided to do is make a compilation of all the states we've visited, place them in alphabetical order, and add more pictures to create a Pambling Roads book.  Thank you for taking this wonderful journey with us. It has been absolutely incredible. 

 

Madison, FL., and a quick pit stop at a Best Western.

We’ve heard about the Olustee Battle for years and decided since we were right there on our way home that we would stop and see the battle grounds. There was a memorial built and a small building that had information about the Olustee Civil War Battle.

St. Augustine

 

If you have followed the Pambling Roads, you know this is our favorite place to relax and unwind.

The residents of St. Augustine are preparing for the visit from the Pope and the King and Queen of Spain to celebrate their 450th commemoration in 2015.

 

We decided to try the Best Western Bayfront. We went to our favorite restaurants, The Grist Mill, and the Santa Maria. Plans to take the Pirate Ship tour fell through for us. It was raining and neither one of us felt inclined to do the tour in the rain.

 

We grabbed a three-day pass with the Red Train Trolley Tour. We looked for the herb shop but couldn’t find it so we decided to take a trip to Rockledge to my favorite herb lady, Mrs. Mango's.

 

Potter's Wax Museum

Seriously awesome! A must do for anyone wanting to spend a day checking out some great artists! And visiting your favorite characters: Harry and Friends...

Peck House

 

On historical Saint George St., this home is owned and maintained by the Woman’s Exchange of St. Augustine.

Wolf’s Museum of Mystery

 

The museum is full of oddities, artifacts, and two stories of exotic and rare art and collectibles. The Lizzie Borden boudoir was eerie.

The Fountain of Youth

 

It has been quite a while since we visited the Fountain of Youth, an archaeological park. We love the peacocks and walking along the grounds, exhibits, and experiencing the living history. I made sure hubby drank from the cup of water twice. I want him to live a good long life.

On one of our strolls through St. Augustine we met some people from St. Augustine and chatted for a while. Al and Jerry were having their “men’s night out” while their wives were doing their thing. As we were leaving, they invited us to meet them at Stogies Cigar Bar after we were done with our tour.

 

Stogies

This place was fantastic. The gentlemen were still there and were sitting with another couple (from Georgia) when we arrived. They waved us over to join them and we ended our night having a wonderful enjoyable time.

There’s no place like home…
