Happy Anniversary

Ken and I took a lovely day to Ormond Beach. We walked the beach and watched the waves rolling in. The wind was brisk so we headed on up to St. Augustine. We stopped on the way there and ate a nice lunch overlooking the river. Then we found some sites to see. First stop was the Oldest House and museum. No picture taking allowed so you'll just have to visit to see the inside. The bottom floor was built around 1726 and the second floor added later. Bailey our tour guide at the Oldest House Museum, recommend the Spanish Military Hospital and it was a good one. We went to there  and learned more than we ever wanted to know about amputations. Thank you Dawn, for that. We also learned about medicine as far back as the 1500's and how some of todays medicines are derived plants and herbs that were used back then.
 Bailey also recommended the Chocolate Turtle for a place to stop for coffee and dessert and it was delicious.

Thank you to everyone that wished us a Happy Anniversary (23). We had much fun and got lots of ideas for future articles and stories.
