Vacation:Day one in Orange Park Florida!

Today started our vacation to Florida. We made it to the state line at 9am this morning. Every year when I went on vacation with family we would stop here and take our picture at this sign. So of course I had to do it when we passed it!
Once we got into our room in Orange Park and took a break we headed out to go to a yarn shop...of course! When we got to the long bridge I just had to take a picture. I love this bridge! BUT I put the window down to take a picture and my directions to the yarn store went right out the window! OMG Thank goodness I remembered that the Barnes and Nobles that we was also going to was only 1 exit away.So we went there and asked for directions. ;)We made it to the yarn store!It wasn't super easy to spot but we got there none the less.I enjoyed talking to the store owner.Tho I didn't get her name. (Sorry about that) She invited me to come to there knit night tomorrow. I might take her up on it if we don't plan anything else.

The free bag that I got!
You know me and bags!
I love them. lolHere you can see my haul! It's not much but I will have much fun knitting with them!
Pictured are:
Cascade 220 in green & black
Madelinetosh (new to me) in Rosewood (fingering)
Mini Mochi in green & brown (color 104)
Jojoland Ballad (4 skeins) in a pretty blueish purple
Hiyahiya's US 6 32" & US 2 6" DPN's After the yarn store we hung out at B&N.

All in all it was a good day! I have plans to go to B&N and meet up with Kristin (CometoSilver).I look forward to meeting my hero...I mean..my sock teacher and Plurk friend in person. (Has just been told that Kim,ContinentalKim,will also be there!)
As for now I am going to play a little more online then call it a night.(I have been up since 4am this morning.)
Have a great night/day!
