The day before I started my new job, Paul and I decided to explore historic St. Augustine. A reproduction of the HMS Bounty, used in numerous films including Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, was in town! We had coffee at an awesome coffee shop that was formerly a blacksmith's shop in the 18th century, then walked all around town until dinnertime. I'd heard great things about The Floridian, so we stopped there. I had the Florida Sunshine Salad, which was amazing, and Paul had the Fresh Catch Floridian. He liked it, but would've appreciated more food. Everything was nicely arranged, but the portions could've been slightly larger.

We had a beautiful Sunday. Next time I'll definitely remember to bring my DSLR!
