"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

May 30 - St. Augustine, FL

Day 85 - Concert in the Park
Anchorage Inn & Marina

We sat on the fly bridge this morning enjoying our coffee and watching the boats come and go. The ones that couldn't fit under the bridge would have to circle around until it opened. They open the bridge every thirty minutes...on the hour and half hour. Our first outing today was Stewart's Market to pick up a few more things before we leave tomorrow. Then we walked across the bridge for lunch at Harry's Seafood Bar & Grill.  It was very good, Stan had an oyster po-boy and I had shrimp tacos. The weather was wonderful so we sat in the courtyard. Our final stop was a concert in the park. We took our blanket and relaxed on the grass as we listened to jazz music. It was a very relaxing afternoon. Since it was Memorial Day we grilled hot dogs for dinner. It felt like an all American day to us.

 Bridge of Lions is 25 feet tall and has to open for taller boats

St. George Street was the main street in St. Augustine's early days, and today the thoroughfare is still considered the heart of the city. Full of restaurants, shops, galleries and historic buildings.
