    Hi, Everyone.

    We're back from our road trip to Florida, and here's the wisdom we bring you:

    • If a hotel website asks for payment in advance for a 'good' rate, don't. The desk clerk wouldn't accept our voucher and it was $10 too much.
    • St. Augustine Rules! We're planning on retiring there.
    • Jungle Adventures just outside Titusville is really cool! For a surprisingly small amount, we got a boat swamp tour, held an alligator and petted a skunk and a panther.
    • Do visit the Kennedy Space Center. If you like Disney, you will enjoy it.
    • St. Augustine Rules! Can't say it enough.
    • On the way back, if you're overnighting or dinnering in Charleston, W. Va. the Sleep Inn off I-79 exit 1 is a nice place to stop and has a good family restaurant.

    Did I mention that St. Augustine rules?

    Kungaloosh!

    Welcome back! Next time if we drive down to Florida, I think we'll have to check out St. Augustine :) Did you go to any beaches there?

    St. Augustine is about 2 hours north of Kennedy Space Center in Florida, on the Atlantic Coast. It is the oldest European city in the USA, and the location of Ponce de Leon's Fountain of Youth.

    Tourist Website Available

    We stayed at the Monterey Inn on Matanzas Bay, and played tourist for 3 glorious days. The best part was, we parked the car in the hotel parking lot, and didn't get into it again until we had to start heading home.

    We even did a pirate ghost cruise on a schooner one night.

    I'll be doing a full report on my website, once I get my pictures downloaded and my thoughts organized.

    Kungaloosh!

    Welcome home, Mort! We drove through St. Augustine once and it does look interesting. I'm looking forward to reading your trip report and seeing your pictures!
