Can you believe these shoes are from Walmart? I love them! That aside, when I thought about it, I spend a lot of time in Florida. Almost an entire month out of the year. Sadly, when I graduate, I'll probably not be able to go down there as much.
Anyways, on a quest to find a mug (I'm not joking about that...but more on that later....), we ended up in Old Town in Orlando. Such a cute place! Yeah, it rained a little, but it was warm, so it was alright. The shops there were fantastic! There was a shop just filled with anime paraphernalia--I know my sister would be jealous. And really cool haunted house (but it wasn't open until dark). There were also amusement park rides, but we didn't really care about going on them. Oh, and a magic shop! There was a show every few hours and the one we went to was great! The magician was very charismatic and entertaining.
So yeah, one reason we went was to find a mug with my family's crest on it. My dad has one and I wanted to add one to my ever growing collection of mugs (I think that I have maybe....100 mugs?). Turns out, the mug store moved somewhere else...inside a theme park, so we couldn't get in. Oh well, At least the magic show ended up being fun!
I remember going to St. Augustine as a kid, but it must've been when I was in elementary school! So it's been awhile. The city was absolutely beautiful! Fun fact--St. Augustine claims to be the oldest city in the US. And this schoolhouse, the location of many of these pictures, also claims to be the oldest wooden schoolhouse in the US!
It rained most of the day, but it was still fun. My hair, clearly, got a little messed up, thanks to the rain. Because my camera is water sealed, I wasn't too worried. But we did eventually stop to get ponchos. At one point a few tourists were very concerned about my camera, but I explained to them it was built work in the rain (Pentax K-30, if you're interested!).
Both statue pictures always makes me think of Doctor Who. Gosh, I haven't watched that show in so long! Not since Matt Smith left the show.
The last picture makes me think of Narnia a little. You know, the White Witch's castle where the courtyard is filled with stone animals? I was glad I had my camera with me when we drove by this time. Every time I ended up near that place I never seemed to have my camera! But yeah, kind of creepy :)
