Day 34 MM 776.5

St. Augustine, Florida

Saturday, December 3, 2011

Filled the water tanks, fuel tank, wash the salt, off the deck and on the way to town we dumped the trash. The town was having a celebration of the British takeover of the Fort, once a year the town has this day set aside; We went in to the Fort and attended the cannon firings at the fort, over the Port of St. Augustine, there were  also people in period costumes every during the day.  We went to church, had some dinner than later in the evening there was a parade up the middle of town with drum and bagpipes the people followed in period costumes, really neat day all around. We went back to the marina and ran in to a couple we met in Charleston and again in Hilton Head.  Had a drink on their cut little trawler, they are from Texas, but bought their boat in Baltimore and are in the process bringing it to Florida then after the first of the year taking it to Texas.
