Saint Augustine, FL

We have reached our destination! Today we traveled in rain for the first time. I didn’t really want to leave port in weather like this, but the captain has yet to let me down when it comes to judgment about what weather or conditions to boat in, so we went. The rain held up after a while and we traveled in the grey and mist. Beautiful homes along the waterway!!  

Approaching, Saint Augustine looked every bit as pretty as I had heard. The bridge of Lions under which we passed to get to the Municipal Marina, resembles  a cross between a bridge in Paris, France and one in Venice, Italy. The town is right across the street from the marina and tonight they light the Christmas lights for the first time this year. St Augustine was voted “one of the top 10 prettiest places to see Christmas Lights in the world” by National Geographic last year, so we are obviously looking forward to that!

  1. Glad to hear that you all made it safely to your final destination. I hope you both enjoy St Augustine. It is truly beautiful at Christmas time. Be sure not to miss the restaurant Columbia on St George St, The Tasting Room and the San Sebastian Winery. There really is a ton of great stuff to do and see in St Augustine.
