Florida: Fishing, The Beach & St. Augustine

After our yummy lunch we hopped back in the boat and headed out for some fishing and beach time. Mack and Scott had picked up some little live bait fish while we were stopped and the kids could have played with them ALL DAY LONG, especially miss Adeline.

Ella was ecstatic that she caught the first fish of the day!
She was also pretty excited when we spotted dolphins swimming in the ocean. One group of 3 came especially close to the boat and each time they surfaced all the girls squealed with delight (myself and Cheryl included :-).

We then made our way over to a special little beach that emerges as the tide goes out in the afternoon. The day was pretty overcast, which made for beautiful pictures but chilly weather. The kids however didn't mind a bit. Preston ended up getting stripped down after tripping and soaking his clothes. We made an outfit out of a towel to keep him warm for the boat ride home :-). It was super stylish!

The boys dropped us off back at the dock and did a little more fishing. We relaxed for a bit and then Mack and Cheryl made us a yummy dinner before we headed back to the hotel for baths and bedtime. The next day we met up again for a de-licious lunch where we were treated to some of the best guacamole ever. Mack had to head off to meeting after lunch but the rest of us walked around St. Augustine and played on an insanely HUGE playground. It is such a fun city and the kids LOVED the playground. Eventually we had to hit the road for Orlando, but we had so much fun visiting everyone!!! Thanks for the fun time guys!
