Weeks 23-26: Groundhog Days in St. Augustine

The past five weeks have been eerily similar, but there’s lots to appreciate in St. Augustine even while social distancing.

Colorful sunrises are always a pleasure.

Covid-19 concerns aside, historic architecture and lovely houses provide miles of delightful scenery for strolls. For exercise and mental sanity, weekday walks wearing masks when in proximity of others as well as zig zagging across narrow streets. The occasional “good morning” or “good afternoon!” a cheery reminder of pre-coronavirus times

Interpretive plaques abound on St. Augustine’s streets.

Crossing the Bridge of Lions allows exploration of residential areas on nearby Anastasia Island.

Love the concept…suspect Covid-19 may be dampening usage these days.
To get to the closest Publix supermarket, we dinghy to the Vilano Beach pier and walk a few blocks.

We try to stay connected with family and friends via phone calls, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger and Zoom. We never envisioned virtual happy hours becoming a substitute for in-person “sundowners” in our cockpit. Kudos to the technologists who make it possible.

Ready for a virtual happy hour.

Tomorrow we begin making our way north to the Chesapeake Bay. Until the next post, sending all wishes that you be well and at peace wherever you are.
