The Old Jail

The next part of our day included a trip to the Old Jail. One of the most haunted places in St. Augustine, but they didn't mention that fact. But, I knew. Oh, yes. I knew.

This & That

So much has been occurring lately. I'm going to divide this day into sections because, well, there is just so much!

The next couple of photos are from a little time Nikki and I spent on St. George Street.

The Annual 2008 Regatta of Lights on the Bayfront

Hey, Barb!! Yes, Saturday night there was another parade in St. Augustine!! It was the The Annual 2008 Regatta of Lights on the Bayfront and it was magical.

While looking at these pictures, keep in mind:

  1. I'm not a night photographer
  2. I don't have a tripod
  3. The boats were moving
  4. There was two very jumpy girls in front of me (You know...the wave your hands in the air, woo girls)
  5. See #1 again just to beat a dead horse
