We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast called 44 Spanish Street Inn and booked a room called the Rosewood Suite. We ended up also getting the room connected to it due to a problem with our bathroom (previous guest broke the faucet off in the tub) so we would have a bathroom to use. It was a nice layout and I would stay there again.
We wandered around the place for a bit and then went over to the old fort to look around.
The fort is simply massive. You can walk all around the outside for free and then they charge you to go inside but it is only like $6 so we decided to go explore it some more. It was interesting looking at something with so much history. I can only imagine the number of battles they had to fight there.
I think I enjoyed photographing the old cannons the most - I loved the designs they had carved into them.
We ate our dinner at The Columbia since we could never get into it in Tampa as it was always booked solid. Ringo loved the 1905 Salad and I enjoyed Gazpacho for our starters. Then we dug into some paella!
The sidewalks are rolled up around 6PM if the stores were even open at all on a Monday. Most stores in the area are closed on Monday/Tuesday and open the rest of the week. The following day we looked at The Oldest House (oldest surviving Spanish dwelling in Florida) and a few of the other historical houses before heading to a local quilt shop. I purchased a pattern and a kit from them and then we headed over to Cape Canaveral! Here is the full slideshow from St. Augustine:
In Cocoa Beach we stayed at Country Inn and Suites. The room was inexpensive and relatively close to the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex. We spent a whole day there and had a fantastic time. I highly recommend it if you have any interest in the space program at all.
