We have made some friends here in the marina and last night six of us walked across the street to the brewery for a beer sampling. Carol and Rick from OH live aboard their sailboat and are headed further south after the holidays. So are Cindy Ann and Steve from upstate NY. It is very nice to have friends to spend time with and to wave to as they ride their dinghies back and forth to their boats in the mooring field. It was also lovely to stop by in our dinghy today and be invited to enjoy freshly baked cookies at Cindy Ann and Steve's! 

Today, boat friends Susanne and Les from NC stopped on their way driving north after having celebrated Christmas in Ocala, FL. We had a lovely lunch at the Tasting Room, which is by far the best meal and restaurant we have experienced in Saint Augustine! It was great to catch up with them and receive some news from home. Les is an author and told me he has been enjoying my tales but that it is the first cruising blog he has ever read that is about everything BUT cruising. You get to hear the truth from friends...

Tomorrow, Tracy and Chris are driving up from Stuart, FL to spend a couple of days playing with us here. We have stocked up with plenty of wine and tuned the guitar - Tracy can sing and so can Cindy Ann and Steve. We are lucky to have many and talented friends.
