Florida trip..places and things

My cousin Cheryl and I drove to Florida. Below are some photos I took. I always seem to have my camera out.

Jacksonville was our first stop in Florida. We stayed  couple of nights with my cousin, Cheryl's cousin Pam and her family.

Yings takee outtee Jacksonville this small Chinese take out restaurants sign just cracked me up. This little restaurant wasn't far from where we stayed.

St. Augustine was our next stop.
