Perfect Day to Explore St. Augustine. FL



It turned out that Jazzy just had a little rain water in her fuel that caused the issues we had with yesterday.  Today she ran like new and took us to the dinghy dock where we deposited more full garbage sacks, this time without spilling junk all over the deck and having to chase down bad apples and tomatoes carried away by the wind (😄) The sun came out today in a clear blue sky with cooler than normal temps for this time of year.  Long pants, socks and shoes were required today to be comfortable in the low temps and breezy air as we explored the old town district of St. Augustine, FL.  There is so much history surrounding this place it would be impossible to try to cover it all.  We spent time at the old fort Castillo de San Marcos, Flagler College, Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine and St. George Street.

Here are some views we experienced as we walked the ancient roads on the second oldest (Pensacola was the first) town in North America.
