Sometimes, all you need is a break!! We both feel so refreshed and rejuvenated after our vacation (and we still have 1 night and 1/2 a day to go!). Itâ€™s nice to just wander around without time limits on anything and no pressure to get things done.
Regarding vacation eating, obviously I havenâ€™t been eating as â€œcleanlyâ€ as I normally do â€“ wine, chocolate, meals out, etc. Since that always tends to happen on vacations, no matter how good my intentions are, I try to make up for it by staying active and doing lots of sightseeing on foot. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m so glad I was able to get that run in this AM â€“ itâ€™s all about the balance!
St. Augustine was a blast. The â€œancient cityâ€ holds so many memories for us. Itâ€™s such a fun and walkable town, too.
We randomly stopped at a â€œdive barâ€ for lunch because they had an awesome roof-top patio. We could even see the ocean! 🙂
Whenever we eat out, we tend to order two things we both like and then we split. We got the pork tenderloin sub and a beer-battered fish wrap.
They were both VERY small (the sub was many three inches and the wrap was teeny tiny), but each sammie was SO good that it was a perfect meal. Future Husband was disappointed that the subs didnâ€™t come with fries, but I was secretly elated because that meant there was room forâ€¦.. FUDGE!
I got a small slice of cookies and cream.
Then, we walked to San Sebastianâ€™s Winery to do a free tour and tasting.
Not going to lie or sugarcoat thisâ€¦. every single wine we tried (about 1 oz. of seven types) was SO DISGUSTING. And, it was NOT just a personal preference kind of thing. This one woman came up behind me and said, â€œThis is bad wine, isnâ€™t it?â€ and I laughed and said, â€œThey would probably sell more bottles if they didnâ€™t give out free tastes!â€
After we got home, I made an early â€œdinnerâ€ appetizer spinach pastries (found them frozen in the freezer) and an iceberg wedge with balsamic vinegarette and Romano cheese.
I hope you all understand, but Iâ€™m going to unplug the computer for the night and just spend time with Future Hubby. Iâ€™ll probably eat another small snack, sip some champagne, and sit in the hot tub all night long. 🙂
Enjoy your Saturday! See you for breakfast!
