While at the Dealership

Monday April 4, 2016

Since the RV dealer will be working on the 5th wheel, we decided to do a day trip.  Cliff wanted to complete the moving of his domicile to Florida.  We decided to drive to Green Cove Springs and pick up some mail.  We met some very nice people.  Everyone in Green Cove Springs seems very happy.  Again, I love this town.  After our mail pick up, we headed to the Clerk of the Courts to file Cliff’s domicile.  Cost $10.00 and took about 5 minutes. Then we went to the Supervisor of Elections to register to vote.  The woman working there was so nice and helpful. I wish we had gotten her name.  Then to lunch at Corky Bell’s.20160404_111309Good seafood.  The cole slaw was the best I have had in a long time. The food was very good and nice service.

Then we decided to head to St. Augustine.  Mary & Alex Wade and Pat & Gisela Patteson both suggested that we go there.  We really enjoyed our visit and will go back next season to do the on/off trolley ride.  We took the Red Train Trolley from Ripley’s.  Our guide was great.20160404_131422The tour is 90 minutes and well worth the time.  So much history. 20160404_131949The Grace United Methodist Church was built by Henry Flagler, founder of Standard Oil.  Flagler did a lot in St. Augustine.20160404_134922_001This is the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Augustine, 1793-1797, the oldest church in Florida.

This tree was built into an RV.  It was very cool inside.  We could not take any photos, because it was too dark. Something to see.20160404_145927Next to the truck where we parked was this sign and statue. This was created from chrome car bumpers from 1950 and 1960 vehicles for the Denver Broncos’ 1987 Super Bowl appearance. They did not win. Oh well!20160404_145918

We really enjoyed St. Augustine and will go back and tour more.
