Winery, Chocolate, Lighthouse, and Beach
This past Monday Bryan had the day off of work so we had a date day. We decided to go to San Sebastian Winery in St Augustine. We learned about growing grapes in Florida, took the tour, and did some tasting. We had a really great time!
Our purchases consisted of four of the wines that we liked. I also got the special lighthouse bottle as well.
After the winery we walked down to the chocolate factory but the last tour we had missed by half an hour. We looked around and bought chocolate instead. The best chocolate ever!
We decided that we had enough time to see the St Augustine Lighthouse so we headed there. We had such a good time and the area is so pretty. We climbed all of the stairs to the top and the view was so nice. We learned all about the history and toured the Keepers' house which is now a museum. We would love to go back at night when they do the paranormal tour.

After the lighthouse we drove to the beach and walked until it began to get dark. We saw a pretty pink sky that reflected off the ocean.
These Florida beaches that we live so near to now are just breath taking. I feel so blessed to be this close to so much beauty. I am so thankful everyday that we made this move. Sometimes we think it's still not real. We are so happy here. It's so easy for people to say that you are what makes your happiness. Those are the people who have never went through what we have been through. Your environment and the people around you can make you miserable. Sometimes a change of scenery is just what needs to happen in order to find happiness.
We had a great day and I cannot wait until Bryan's schedule at work changes and we have more time off together. There is so much of Florida that we want to see and do. Until then......
