St. Augustine

We only have one day here, and it’s beautiful weather, so we figured on going in to St. Augustine and taking the standard trolley tour.  As Mom and I were walking Odie around the RV park in the morning, a woman came out of her RV waving some paper at us and asking if we were staying for the day.  Turns out she had tickets for the Trolley that she couldn’t use as they had to leave.  That’s the way this lifestyle is – magic moments just string together.

So, we were off to the Trolley tour to see the oldest city in the United States. 

The Fort – Castillo San Marcos:

The historic hotel, now Flagler College:

 

Inviting eating and drinking establishments

The ‘Mile Zero’ marker for the Spanish Trail – St. Augustine to San Diego.

And, a special treat – the Easter Parade:

The main reason we stopped here for a day was to see our friend Glenn, who lives not too far away in South Jacksonville.  We got to see his new office setup … he ‘out-geeks’ us by a longshot!

Then we went to dinner at a great place on the water – Clark’s Fish Camp.  There’s *lots* of water around Jacksonville with the St. Johns river and all its tributaries.

We’re off today headed for Charleston, SC.  We’ll only have one night there as we need to be at the RV-Dreams rally on Tuesday – it’s not far from Charleston in Longs, SC.
