Whata Trip

David and I took a super fun trip to Georgia/the beach last week but I haven't been able to update this yet because I couldn't find my camera cord - I just found it. In the camera case. Right where it belongs. Apparently I've become so good at living in total chaos that putting things away is something my brain just can't comprehend. Oops.

Anyways, the first leg of our trip (after a pit stop to Publix in St. John's) was to Kingsland, Georgia (just north of Jacksonville) because I needed to get a Georgia driver's license with my new name to match my credit cards. We got a late start and then had a hard time finding the place (because apparently there are 2 roads with the same name in the same city...brilliant!) but eventually we found our little treasure chest and got everything taken care of. And, of course, the people there were just as strange as every other DMV in the world. They're like magnets for weirdos.

So, our next stop was to the BEACH! We got distracted by this little gem though and just had to go inside to scope it out.

Whata place! There is nothing quite like heading to the beach after you down a humongous cheeseburger and a ton of fries, but hey, it's vacation. We decided to go to Amelia island because it was the closest beach and we were sick of sitting in the car. Hooray!

The weather was BEAUTIFUL (much better than the 100+ temps we've had in Orlando lately), the water was warm and we had a great time splashing in the ocean and napping on the beach.

The last leg of our trip was to St. Augustine to be tourists and have a nice 2 month anniversary dinner. We got to see the lighthouse (...from a distance, we're too poor to pay $20 to go to the top) and drive/walk around the city for awhile.

For dinner, we tried to be bold and try a place called the Bubble Room. It looked like a modern little Greek Fusion type restaurant and the menu sounded good, so all was well until we met...our "bubble scout." Seriously, the waiters/waitresses are dressed up like scouts like crazy colored socks and bunny ears on their heads. This should have been our first cue to leave but we let them take us upstairs, where we found this:

Yes, that is Mickey (because we want to see some more of him) surrounded by pepto bismol pink walls, neon lights and strange pictures. The other side of the room featured creepy marionette dolls that stared at me while I ate. This is how David feels about the Bubble Room...

He got over it when they gave us the biggest piece of red velvet cake I ever seen (...and I've seen a lot of red velvet cake...). Check out the decorations in our table - yes, that's Santa. He also adorned our salt & pepper shakers and made a few other apperances around the room. In June.

Anyways, it was kind of a strange, not-so-romantic dinner but the food was really good and we definitely made some memories. Overall it was a really fun trip and a good reminder of how lucky we are to live so close to the beach. I definitely want to start going more often...but maybe next time we'll skip the Bubble Room...
