Weekend Wrap-Up 7.20.09

After a very stressful week, John and I really needed to get away from everything. So we took a very-mini-vacation!
For the longest time, John and I have wanted to camp at Anastasia State Park, but they usually book up far in advance at this time of the year. But on a whim, I checked the website last week and there was one campsite available for one night! So I grabbed it, and on Saturday morning, we threw the tent in the car and off we went.
We had a great time. We spent most of our time on the beach. We also did some nature hikes and walked around downtown. It was beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. I also found myself saying "the kids would love this!" several times, so we have plans to go back with the kids ASAP.
While we were there, John remembered that De Lions of Jah were playing in St Augustine on Sunday. They are an awesome reggae group that we'd seen before at one of the Free Friday concerts in our hometown, and we really enjoyed their show. So we decided to go see them again. We had a great time. I don't know which we enjoyed the most, the music or the people-watching. John and I both are avid people-watchers. (Which really means we're just damned nosey.) I love gatherings where you see people of all ages, races, and walks of life, and this concert fit that description. There was a very old lady who danced throughout the entire show. She was hilarious! And some very strange people....some were the cool kind of weird. Others, not so much. But they were all fun to watch!
We ducked out a little early to head home. The kids got home that evening and it was my first time seeing my teens since their church camp trip, so we had a lot to talk about!
It was one of those weekends to remember. The best kind.

My mom says she is nosey too. LOL! I find that a good thing cause you can observe your surroundings. :) I wish I can do the same but I'm too shy.

Greg is a people watching too. I'm not as observant as he is, but I like to listen to what he's noticed. Ummm, I'm not camping/tent material. Greg wants to camp in a VERY rustic area. I told him that his match.com profile should have stated that he wants to date a woman who will pee in the woods. Lol. Give me a cabin and I'll nature walk all day long.
