St. Augustine, FL

This morning started out about 8:30. After breakfast we headed up to St. Augustine to visit the lighthouse and Old Town. Bridget is a member of the USLHS and has a lighthouse passport. We found this on Gypsy’s blog and ordered one before we left MS. Bridget has her first stamp, their website is We toured the Light Keepers house and grounds as well as climbing the 216 steps to the top.

Joe this one is for you, I do exist and having a great time.


After we returned to ground level we headed out for Old Town. It is about 5 minutes from the lighthouse. We parked and asked the attendant for a recommendation for lunch. She said Local Heroes hands down so that’s where we went. The sandwiches were great and reasonably priced. After lunch we continued our Old Town walk. We picked up a couple of bottles of St. Augustine hot sauce for Robert. It is made from the local peppers grown in St. Augustine. He collects hot sauces so this will add to his collection. We also picked up a shirt for Kelsey. We headed back to the trailer around 4:30. I did some more practicing with my dulcimer after we got home. Relaxing for now.

Stay Safe
