da vinci sunday

lazied our sunday away in da vincis courtyard
da vincis' being a college town ecletic music cafe
tucked down a side street in deland
attached to the tongue & groove
which sells architectural salvage

the deland fall art festival was one block away

after strolling the art tents ...we ck'd inside tongue & groove
i love these colorsthey feel like fall to me
an elephant door from india

and grand-aged chandelier
great colors everywhere i looked
then we settled outdoors and listened to music for hours

watched kids run and trippie hippies dance
and ate fiercely good bbq

p.s. we were here after our sat. nite date to the beach also..

cause it felt just right

happy november everyone!

we had a date to st. augustine yesterday

enjoyed strolling the old streets together

and browsing the shops

this one serving florida muscadine wine

the charm of st. augustine

the cobble streets, old buildings, unique arts and people

stopped at mi casa for some homemade sangria and music

trippie-hippie vibe mixed with a little street pirate

hidden nooks

and little unexpected surprises

like this little cutie putting on a show
while dad was left in charge

and a nice moonlit drive home along coast
