Light House Trip
18 April 2012 | Anastatia Island St Augustine
Jim - 80 but windy
Went to light house --Dede Went shopping and history exploring on the trolley bus. She has a lot to tell you.
My story is that I did not climb the 275 stairs to the top. I went in my USCG hat but refused to climb to the top--felt good not to have to go up and polish the brass!!(not that I did that often -Castle Hill Light is 40' feet high 35 steps!)
The anchorage here in St Augustine is well laid out--only complaint is that with wind and current opposed the boat sets funny and ride is bouncy. Current is always running 2-3 kts in or out but the wind has been up and down hitting 20 almost all afternoon and hanging in till 10 pm or so.
Weather forecast is for a front to pass across sometime between now and Sunday with possible strong storms and 40 kt wind. We are staying put till the all clear signal from NOAA.
The city I will leave up to Dede to describe.
