St. Augustine is a lot of fun!
There just wasn't enough time with our boys, Owen and Elliot, before they had to leave us in St. Augustine. It was a wonderful 4 days and great to see them for Christmas. They especially enjoyed the old city and the repreive from the cold, snowy Maryland winter, with temps in St. Augustine around 70 degrees!
Look Mum, I can balance Bristol Rose on my head!
Elliot really showed Robert how to fish in St. Augustine; black bass, black drum, and a few others that didn't make their way to the dinner table.
We also moved south after saying goodbye yesterday, to friends Jon and Shawna, Beausoleil, whom we'd met in Charleston. We enjoyed some good times with them and hope to see them again soon.
We've arrived after a 30 hour offshore passage, in Ft. Pierce. Tomorrow we'll travel the 15 miles north on the ICW to Vero Beach. We plan to spend some time there while we finalize some still outstanding loose ends before heading for West Palm Beach to prepare for our jump to the Bahamas.
