st augustine: Scenic Cruise for a A Cause - 09/20/09 01:49 AM
On Friday, September 18 my husband and I attended Artbreakers Scenic Cruise for a Cause. Pier Fitts and Gaye Jones, both cancer survivors founded Artbreakers to assist cancer patients in St. Augustine, FL. Artbreakers is a great local charity and this event was so much fun.

Local artists donated works of art to be auctioned. The ride … (3 comments)

Whetstone Chocolates - St. Augustine Family Business since 1967
Tomorrow is my mother's birthday, so I had to stop by Whetstone Chocolates to get her some dark chocolate truffles and dark chocolate. She likes all kinds of chocolate, but I am partial to dark chocolate and was hoping she would share. Every year I get her Whetstone Chocolates. Every year I wrap the box and we both laugh as we both know what is inside (or what had better be inside!). She doesn't live in St. Augustine, but Whetstone Chocolate is her favorite chocolate (and mine, too!).

Mike's Place - for bait, crabs and shrimp on the Intracoastal just north of St. Augustine, FL
I like crabs. I just do. I like picking crabs. I like taking a couple of hours just to eat them. You don't put on any weight this way. I am like Bubba in Forrest Gump. I like stone, Dungeness, snow, blue, king, you name it--- crabs. I like them steamed, cold, in a salad, crabcakes, baked in a casserole, you get the idea. I just like crabs.
I grew up eating blue crabs that we caught in the panhandle of Florida (okay, my … (5 comments)

st augustine: The Reef - Great Oceanfront Dining in St. Augustine, FL - 08/03/09 12:33 PM
The Reef - Great Oceanfront Dining in North Beach just a few miles from downtown St. Augustine.    
We have enjoyed dining at The Reef Restaurant since it opened and before when it was Compton's. We would travel from Ponte Vedra for Compton's lobster specials and their wonderful Sunday Champagne Brunch.

Shortly after moving into our oceanfront home just a short walk north of this restaurant, we learned that the builder of our home, Coleman Construction, was also the builder of this restaurant. Our home was built in 1988, a year before Compton's.  Compton's was open between 1989 and 1999 when … (3 comments)

st augustine: Aunt Kate's in St. Augustine, Florida - 08/01/09 10:52 AM
Aunt Kate's restaurant at the river in St. Augustine, Florida is in the North Beach neighborhood of Vilano Beach.

When we moved from Ponte Vedra to St. Augustine (North Beach) in 1998, the first night after we closed on the purchase of our new home, we went to dinner with our new neighbors. We walked a couple of blocks to Oscar's. I was in very casual clothes and had to borrow my neighbor's sandals, which were many sizes too big. But, I knew it was a casual place and would be fine. We had an enjoyable time on the back … (0 comments)

st augustine: The Niña & Pinta Leave St. Augustine, FL - 05/18/09 08:20 AM
The early bird may get the worm, but I was very fortunate this morning to capture the Niña and the Pinta as they were leaving St. Augustine. It was a little before 6:30 this morning when I noticed what I thought were shrimp boats heading back to sea. I thought they were shrimp boats as we had rough waters last night and thought they had come into the St. Augustine inlet for safe harbor, as they are known to do. The photo below shows both ships. One is heading east towards the inlet, the other one has already made the turn as is … (0 comments)
