When Too Much Time May Barely Be Enough!

A brief reccy this morning and what seemed like an overly long, week-long stay, could possibly be too short!

St. Augustine looks like our kind of town - overt tourism aside! The history is what attracted our attention as a location for the Christmas Holiday visit with Owen and Elliot. Spanish/American architecture, cobblestone streets, restaurants and cafes, streets of art galleries and high end stores, museums and the fort, Castillo de San Marcos. I have my heart set on lunch at a quaint little Greek restaurant, and then perhaps Cuba for dinner? Can't wait for the boys to arrive when we'll do a lot more sightseeing.

Adding to our delight, $60 for the week buys us hot showers at the Municipal Marina, a spot to tie the dinghy, and access to the laundry and free internet! Anchored out, south of the Bridge of Lions puts us right on the doorstep of the city. You can count on photos being posted soon!

  1. Florida sounds like a nice place to spend the holidays - I'm looking out my parents' window in Maine at 18 inches of snow on the ground, which we drove through from Maryland on Saturday/Sunday. You definately visited Maine during the right time of year!
