We had a great day touring St. Augustine, the oldest European city in the United States. We took the trolley around and really enjoyed seeing this beautiful city. Yesterday it rained all day but today was clear if a little cool.

... Castillo De San Marcos we went back into time. To the time of piracy through a playful museum. The museum held the largest collection of pirate artifacts in the world. We saw 1 of 2 last remaining Jolly Roger flags. They also had the last remaining pirate chest. The chest last belonged to Captain Thomas Tew. At the end of the museum they even threw in some movie memorabilia.

We have unpacked, stocked the fridge and bar and anxiously await our friends from Fingal, Felix and Anita who arrive tomorrow to help us watch the Super Bowl. Though not really a Super ...
... filled the starboard hull with a foot of water!!! Oh no!! To make things worse, the mechanics were not able to fix the boat without ordering parts and we needed the starboard engine to get us off the dock given the wind direction. The sea trial was off. We then continued to find issues that we hadn't seen initially. I took a "walk" to consult with the surveyor, who, by now I had really come to ...
