WASHINGTON OAKS GARDEN STATE PARK | PALM COAST, FL

A little throw back to February. Yes, February. I mentioned previously that Summer was my chance to catch up on some personal photos, and I came across these gems a few weeks ago. Like most photographers, personal photos are taken (we promise we document our real lives too. ;) ), upload them into our computers, and then they're left there. Oops! This past February, my husband and I made our way to the East Coast of Florida for the most memorable engagement session. You can see the full post HERE. We decided to make a day of it and explore a bit of the area beforehand. Our day started at the European Village, and guys, it was like stepping into Italy. Lucky for us, we went on a day their Saturday Morning market was going on. You know me and morning markets. <3  We ended our time here with a stop at one of the restaurants for lunch. All the outdoor seating was a fantastic way to people watch! I'm very tempted to Airbnb one of these villas with a balcony view one day.

 If you're ever in Palm Coast, FL, make a quick trip to Washington Oaks Garden State Park. I promise you won't regret it. This epic tree is the main attraction for this garden and it's estimated to be 200-300 years old. You can see a wider shot of this tree in the engagement session I linked above. 

Why, hello. 

Directly across from the gardens is a beach access. What makes this beach unique are all the rocks that have formed along the shoreline. Such a gorgeous view and I'm antsy to return as soon as I can. 

'Til next time Palm Coast!
