St. Augustine

What a great place!  We left Jax Beach headed south on the ICW towards St. Augustine Municipal Marina.  When we called them on the VHF radio to get our assigned mooring, we were pleasantly surprised to be on the north side (no need to call and go under the Bridge of Lions) and we were on the west wall - right along the city.  We pulled up our pendant and were greeted by yells and hand waves from our New Bern friends who were on shore watching us pull in.  We tidied up the boat and then set off for a great time eating, drinking and being merry.  That night we watched the Nights of Lights from our boat and then settled in for some much needed rest.
Arrggghhh Matey!  Kala made me do it.

Kala loves to relax after walking around the city all day.

Exploring around the beach brought us here - to the site of the Vilano Beach Casino.

  1. Nice! Looks like you had fun in st Augustine, we had to rush through to get to Miami for thanksgiving, but we really wanted to stay longer. Where are you all now? We are waiting for weather to cross to west end from Miami! Hope our paths cross soon!
