    Default St Augustine Mini Vacation with wifey


    Little picture story I thought I'd share. You may have seen a pic or two I already post ion the Billbob thread, but I thought I'd put it all together.

    Wifey and I went to St Augustine FL again. It's a cool place. Only 2 hours from the house. Anastasia state park is a very nice park. Great beach, and cool wildlife.

    We went to a couple fishing piers. Very nice ones. This is a pic of the free one at Vilano Beach Pier. There's a Publix right next to it that sells frozen bait shrimp. I bought some of the frozen stuff, and some cooked chilled cocktail shrimp too with cocktail sauce and we have some to eat and fish with while we waited for the bait shrimp to thaw. lol

    We also went to St Johns County Fishing Pier. Super windy there. Could not even get the bait to the water.

    We ate at the Sunset Grill. Great food. I had trigger fish. Really nice texture, and flavor. I liked it. The texture was a little thicker, I want to say tougher, but really not. Just more substantial. I really liked it.

    We went on a pirate cruise. Thank goodness they sold adult refreshments cause it was a show that was primarily directed towards kids, and we had none there! lol It was still fun, met some nice folks, told them about Crappie.com. It's so cool wearing crappie.com gear and sharing with folks our great website. Makes kinda a great ice breaker. Make sure to wear your CDC gear and represent out family friendly site, make some friends for sure.

    We go to St A once or twice a year. We had Lunch at the Sunset Grill last year, it was real good. We like Salt life too. Not a tourist place but we like O'Steens for Shrimp.

    That boat with all the motors is a piece of junk, no trolling motor. Glad y’all had a good time.

    Sounds like a great trip. Been a bit since I have eaten trigger fish. Mighty fine eats and absolutely a blast to catch
    The love for fishing is one of the best gifts you can pass along
