I am back from vacation now and thought I would share my vacation photos with you this week. You knew I would, didn't you? We had a great time, great weather, good food and a few surprises along the way.
The first surprise occurred the moment we got to our condo when we started unpacking. Somehow, my camera got wet and stopped working! Not a good thing to happen the first day of vacation! So, we put it in some rice to dry out and it eventually started working again, but not before my husband decided to buy a new one! We didn't think it would ever be the same. So, now it is a back-up camera. My new camera is much nicer and I got to try it out at our first destination on our trip........Salt Water Cowboy's. It's a seafood restaurant on the marshland. We usually love the food there, but were a bit disappointed this time around. The restaurant is very charming though. Here are some pictures using my camera!
Isn't this restaurant just charming?! By the way, these pictures have not been edited at all. They are straight out of the camera.
I took this picture of my husband and sons in front of the restaurant sign.
Now, let's go inside. The inside was charming too!
The walls were clad in wood planks painted white. The ceiling was a dark grey metal with painted white timbers used as beams. The chairs were all willow. Look at the view we had while we ate.
Not too shabby huh? I think my new camera is a keeper. I'm looking forward to using it at home now. For those that are interested, it is a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V. It's a step up from my last Sony camera. It functions similarly, so it's not too difficult to figure out. It takes amazing video too!
So, over the next week, I'll share more vacation photos. We went to the beach everyday, swam in the pool, went out to eat, shopped in St. Augustine, toured Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum, took a ghost trolley tour, toured the old fort on the Mantanzas River and visited the lighthouse on the island.
Now, I'm catching up on piles of laundry and kissing my dog, Max, whom we left behind and I missed like crazy!!
Looking forward to getting reunited with all of you too. We had a weak Wi-Fi connection at the condo, so I could only visit everyone sporadically.
Thanks for stopping by!
