breakfast, books and tacos..

Saturday morning I went to breakfast at a local restaurant with the ladies from our church. This trip there were 18 of us. After noshing on a western omelet and plenty of coffee I headed down to a Barnes and Noble store a little bit further away than the one at the Town Center for a little change of pace. There are *only* 3 BN stores within 50 miles of where I live, but several Books-a-Million, and one or 2 Borders stores as well. I grabbed a few magazines, a coffee from the cafe and headed to the section where a local high school jazz band was playing. I was very pleased to see many comfy chairs too!

The band finished playing, and the magazines pored over, I headed out in search of a local park I saw online. Set along the St Johns River, the Walter Jones Historical Park was a nice cool area to walk along looking at some old barns built in the mid to late 1800's and a nice view of the River as well. There was a birthday party going on in one of the pavilions and a few other people walking the trail. Other than that all I heard was the sound of birds and the rustle of the breeze thru the trees. After a leisurely walk thru there I got back into my car and headed southeast towards St Augustine.

Since it had been some time since breakfast, it was time to find dinner. Now, I've been thru the historic district at least a dozen times in the last couple years, and I don't remember seeing this taco/burrito shop. I went in, ordered, sat down at a small booth and amused myself by taking some pics, and reading the (allowed) graffiti on the walls. It was delicious fresh food, and I'll definitely be going back next time I'm in the area! And next time, I'm bringing a sharpie to add to the artwork!
