St. Augustine For 3 Weeks & Counting. . .

We didn't plan on being in St. Augustine for a month, but we did!   We stayed for a while because we all needed a break from cruising and there really aren't many more stops before we cross over to the Bahamas.  This was the perfect place to spend the Christmas holiday.  And after 3 paid weeks on the mooring, we got a week free!  So we have spent our time exploring the "Ancient City" as it is known.  We've been to Castillo de San Marcos, a pirate museum, the Lightner Museum, the St. Augustine Lighthouse, beachcombing on Vilano Beach, and even a walking ghost tour!  We've met many cruisers, some with children that we'll see again in the Bahamas.  We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.  On January 6th we dropped our Mooring at the St. Augustine Municipal Marina and cruised a short distance to Marineland.
