Hey the sun is always bright in FL!

So Florida was amazing! It felt soo good to just get away! We started our trip in Jax, took US 1 then ended up on A1A. We went to St. Augustine for a few hours and laid on the beach, ate at the Sunset Grille, then we tried finding a hotel, which we couldn't do cause they were all booked! So we ended up going to Daytona, and we found a hotel on the beach for only $70! We had a balcony view of the pool and beach- it was really nice! The next day we walked Daytona Beach, ate at Bubba Gumps, then we were off. We ended up off of A1A some how, and we were left at in inlet, which had a light house .. it turns out we were at the Ponce De Leon Lighthouse! So we went up it for $5 and saw all the gorgeous views you could wish for! Then we ended back tched the surfers, and just enjoyed the day. Then we couldn't find a hotel.. so we were just like let's go back to Jax. We stayed at a typical hotel, which had yummy waffles! The next day we went to Talbot's Island, which is near Jacksonville.. it was the most beautiful beach I have ever been to! The water was clear, there were absolutely no people, it was just gorgeous and it only cost $5 to get in! After being at the beach we went in search of food, we came across one of the best places I have ever eaten at called The Sandollar Bar and Grill! I got the crabby grouper, and Matt got the Mahi Mahi. Our plates were only $8 & $9! With it, you got your piece of delicious fish, two hush puppies, a side of your choice (I got green beans) and you got cold slaw! I was in love.. after that we went back home to a storm.. :( I had a lot of fun though, I love getting out, and just exploring! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
