Our Weekend With a Rental Car: Arti Gras, St. Augustine, and a Fairy Garden

We have not been getting out much. Our car has become very unreliable. I can't start it at all. Although DH can get it started, he has only been taking it to work and taking us to the grocery store, since the mechanic told us that the more we drive it, the more likely we are to kill another starter.

We rented a car from 5:30 p.m. on February 20th, until 5:30 p.m. on February 23 and fit as many fun activities into those three days, as we could.

Saturday we got dressed up and went to Railroad Square Art Park for Arti Gras.

This is a small Mardi Gras style event with live music, food venders, and a small parade.

The parade:

Sunday was also a day to play dress-up, only this time we headed to St. Augustine for an outing with members of the Central Florida Steampunk Association and The Cowford Steampunk Society.

Monday, Blaze and I went to see a private garden we had been told about, here in Tallahassee. Lichgate is a lovely little cottage with an enormous live oak tree in front and gardens on two sides.
