Birthday Trip to St Augustine and the Floridian 10

In the months of January and February we have quite a few birthdays between friends and family.  This year we all decided to head down to St Augustine to celebrate yesterday. 

Of course, I suggested our new favorite little place to stay called the Edgewater Inn. (The view from here is where the photo for the home page of my blog comes from.)

We got there around 2:30 and spent the afternoon sipping cocktails on the deck.

Here is a view looking at the Edgewater.  It’s just to the left of the Bridge of Lions.

 Dinner was at the Floridian which features seasonal, fresh and local foods.

My appetizer was this Lentil Sausage soup and the following strawberry beet salad with fresh goat cheese.

Fried Green Tomatoes Bruschetta
cornmeal dusted tomatoes, greens, chili-cumin aioli, and Goat’s Feta Cheese on artisan bread.

Fried Grit Cakes
cheesy pan fried polenta cakes topped with a zesty Apple-Tomatillo Salsa
This was my entree; Sunday Supper
Choice of pan roasted free-range Chicken or Pecan-encrusted Tofu over Moroccan spiced root vegetables and quinoa with toasted garbanzo beans, creme fraiche and candied lemon peel w/ tofu $13

Chris chose the meat loaf sandwich with spicy collard greens.

We all walked back to the inn to get ready to go out.  These are some of our gorgeous room views,

I think this is my favorite photo.

 Happy birthday Christopher!

Here we are obviously all sober.

The next morning Justine and I walked back over the bridge to get some coffe.
St George Street was deserted this early in the day.
