In September, my husband and I went to the beach condo in Saint Augustine for a week. We only live about 20 minutes away from it now, so it was a little staycation for us. I had been looking forward to this vacation all year. We hadn't been on a vacation, just the two of us, in almost two years. We didn't have any plans for the week other than go to the beach & pool non-stop.
Our first few days at the condo were super nice weather and we started to get our tan on. It was so nice waking up each day with no alarm sounding in my ear or having to be somewhere. In the middle of the week we got a terrible storm, so we ended up staying inside watching the palm trees do all sorts of yoga poses because of the wind. It was one of the worst storms I had ever seen; thankfully it only lasted a day. The rest of the trip was super nice & we basically just shared the beach with the seagulls (about a million of them). I cannot even explain how nice it was to literally wake up, drink coffee/eat breakfast, go to the beach, eat lunch, go to the pool, eat dinner & chase the sunset... on repeat for 9 whole days. Also, on our last night there we got to see the Harvest Moon which was super cool.
It truly was such a great week - sunshine & the sea are amazing for the soul.
