Gator Adventure - warning lots of photos

This weekend I had a lovely adventure. What was planned was put off and then brought back. It was lovely.

We had a deal on the Alligator Farm in St Augustine (50% off). Then it seemed it would rain so we decided that might not be a good idea.

So we woke, had breakfast and headed it the Arts and Crafts Sale at the Penney Farms Retirement Community. I haven't been there in years and well, I love the retirees. We checked out the arts and crafts, as well as the book sale in the next building.

I scored one craft - a gift card holder with firetrucks for the father in law. And 3 books.

Then we had to go to the PRC Resale Store. It is just the right time of year to get their awesome deals on Christmas ornaments. I scored several.

That fro suckered me in

I have plenty of stars, they are my addiction

Plus I found a couple bell/necklace thingys:

A bell, reindeer and googley eyes. Who could say no.

Wear to work and annoy coworkers. 

The husband found net lights and some tool thingy. He always finds deals.

While driving down the road we saw an estate sale. I think I had read about it on my garage sale app. We wandered in and looked at the old place, The wife must have loved the country style of decorating, along with crocheting. There were a ton of book on the subject. Lots of people were buying. I found one small pin that I found cute.

The we wandered further. The husband wanted Whataburger. Ever since so many have closed he likes to go when we are  near one.

We wandered some more. Then we were in Jacksonville. Then we were on the highway south. Then we were in St Augustine. We decided to go to the Alligator Farm since it hadn't rained.

We had so much fun. There were so many animals. We watched them feed Maximo - a huge alligator. We wandered all about taking pictures. It was lovely.



Lots of gators that can be fed pellets

They are swarming

Look at that bog ole head

Tortoise cuteness


Too cool

Fake, but it looks almost real


Kimono Dragon

These were all over. You put in coins and they go in its belly.

Carved out of wood

Carved in Timor. The photo doesn't give it justice. 

We noticed as we left that the door lights up.

The husband got a new camo hat at the gift shop. He got me a magnet for my wall of magnets on the side of the freezer.

My new magnet the husband bought me. 

We got out of St Augustine as it was getting dark. It was the start of the Lights. The whole town is covered in them. There were a ton of people there.

Since we were in St Augustine, as always, I had to go by the Converse Outlet Store. I didn't find anything. The prices are higher and they had no shoes I liked. :(

I designed these. I would definitely buy them. 

The husband and I went home, ate pot pie and watched The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. He'd never seen it.
