    After listening to Robert talk about St Augustine, I've been talking to Chris and he is asking how much there is to do.

    Is it worth going for just a day trip or would you suggest a night or two staying there?

    Wendy I've not spent too much time in St. Augustine but there should be plenty to do to warrant an overnight stay. Would you like me to see if I can obtain a tour book for you?

    We did the Savoury Faire Food & Wine Tour in St Augustine which I would highly recommend.

    The guide tells you about the history of St Augustine and you stop off at 5 restaurants to eat along the tour, we found places we wouldn't have known about without the tour and one of the hidden treasures was a restaurant where the dining room back when the hotel was first built, was a swimming pool so where we ate our lunch would have been the deep end

    St Augustine is a lovely place to visit

    Wherever you choose to eat, do not select the restaurant that advertises that you can feed the fish from their windows. The food is terrible, and the fish are ugly carpy things. :sorry:

    Any chance of scanning it and posting on here?

    If it's too many pages, I understand, but it would be good to see it. There's so much I've yet to see.
