This fabulous event is TODAY! Local restaurants compete with their entries for all sorts of different chowders at the Conch House. I went last year, and it was so much fun. You can buy taste tickets and try all the chowder you can handle; with today's weather being chilly and damp, this is a perfect day for chowder! You might want to get there early; parking by the Conch House is tight (and the event is in the Conch House parking lot), and there is satellite parking with shuttles at the St. Augustine Amphitheater. More details here.

My boyfriend, Dan, just moved to a new condo in SeaGrove at St. Augustine Beach.  The walls are all WHITE, the trim is all WHITE, the blinds are all WHITE.  I need sunglasses when I go over it is so WHITE!  He has asked me for some help adding color ... it is a bit of a task, what goes with this, is that too much with all this?  I found some helpful information about the basics of the color wheel and how different schemes work. Once he is unpacked I plan to do some before and after shots.  Who knows, this could be the start of a whole new career!

Down the "Shore" (as my fellow NJ peeps would say) with friends this weekend meant visiting the local restaurants. The Oasis is (per their own signs) World Famous and has 44 TV's, inside and outside dining, full bar (key), and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A few hours at the beach in the afternoon, you can drive on the beach here; strongly recommended you have 4 wheel drive; we saw more than one car/SUV get stuck, and have to get unstuck. The afternoon found us at Jack's BBQ for reggae and beverages with a local friend - quite the day of people watching, to say the least. Today will be back to the office for a 3pm closing, and fab memories of what happened!

I'm enjoying a weekend with friends in St. Augustine Beach this weekend. We drove down yesterday, had lunch at Cap's On The Water, and are now enjoying our first full day in our house. The house we rented on VRBO.com is on a canal, and a 5 minute walk to the beach, so we're sure to have some fun in the sun. It's one of our girls birthdays, so we'll probably enjoy a good meal out tonight, as we just ordered in pizza last night. Enjoy your weekend!
