St. Augustine Weekend

This past weekend was a fun mini-vacation to St. Augustine, filled with Spanish Colonial history, steampunk/Victorian era splendor, and pirate miniature golf. In other words, we had a good time!

Our tour guide of Flagler College, Carson, was both knowledgeable and entertaining.

Food-wise, the weekend had it's ups and downs. Saturday, the steampunk group ate at the Taberna del Caballo, where we were entertained by a talented guitar player, while waiting far too long for mediocre food and sangria. I had the chicken quesadilla soup and the cheese and beer fondue, which looked like duplicate bowls of thick orange-ish glop. The flavor of the fondue was fine, but it was hard to eat since I hadn't been given a fork. The soup reminded me of the period of time I spent working in a hosptial cafeteria and the blenderized food we would make for patients who had no teeth and couldn't wear their dentures.

Sunday, we ate at one of our favorite St. Augustine restaurants, the Columbia, where the food is always good and the service is friendly and prompt.
