This post has been a long time coming! We spend several days down in St. Augustine, FL at the beginning of May. We go down every year for The Players golf tournament. This is one of my favorite trips that we take every year. I just LOVE it. This was the last year that the tournament will be held in May. It moves to March next year. We already have our room booked!

Chicken Legs loves the golf tournament, and I love all the amazing restaurants! We ate at a couple of old favorites and several new places! We ate SO much good food on this trip! After posting all these pictures of the food, I am ready to go back!! I think Chicken Legs and I need to plan a golf trip ASAP!

  2. Hi Steph,
    Where to eat guides are so appreciated! I asked my husband, "Is it bad that all the things I want to do on vacation are just places I want to eat?" I also keep notes on my phone of restaurant recommendations in case we go somewhere. Saving this!

  3. Do you know if Harry's Bar & Grill is fashioned after the famous place of the same name in Florence. Made popular, at least in this country, by Vincent Price & Boris Karloff? I have their Shrimp Aurora recipe and will treat our friends to it on July 4th.
