North Beach Camp Resort

And here we come – down the A1A.  We can see it, smell it, feel it!!  A place we’ve never been before!

We tried like heck to get reservations on Anastasia Island State Park (a VERY popular place) but we rendered it impossible unless you are a Florida state resident, or you make your reservations WAY WAY WAY in advance.  So, we think we found the next best place – where we’re staying!!!



A beautiful campground directly across the street from….guess where…..the Atlantic Ocean!!  Great sites…we loved it…..the beach was pristine and virtually empty.  It was a bit on the chilly side.  What’s up with that?  Its Florida folks – it’s supposed to be WARM!!!!!

When friends move away from where you used to live (in CA) and you happen to plan your trip to visit them, that’s what it’s all about!  Fun with friends!!!  Kristen Cohen – some of you reading this may remember her and her hubby Andy (who sadly passed away from cancer – they owned Crap Industries and many other things) now lives in St. Augustine.  We had such a great time.  We had a home cooked meal the night we arrived (mmmm good).  The next day we toured the historic district of St. Augustine via the local Trolley (hop on, hop off).  We had lunch at the St. Augustine Distillery (yummy) and took part in the FREE tasting.  We walked out with a nice goodie bag…….

The next day Kristen played in a golf tournament, so we played tourist for the day and met her that evening for another yummy dinner at a place right on the water across the street from the campground. We could get REALLY used to this – LOL!! 

We visited the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument and saw them fire a cannon (which they do several times a day), saw the Lions Bridge (famous drawbridge there), had lunch overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway, walked the famous “St. Georges” street shopping district, walked along the waterway, and finished up with the St. Augustine Lighthouse.  We were SO excited to see a sea turtle!
