St. Augustine, Florida
Now that we have been freed for a number of years from work bondage our lives have once again become more or less parallel with fewer aggravations weighing heavily on enjoyment. Joe and I sail the Atlantic coastline to the Bahamas. Chris and Donald travel in their RV during winter months along the eastern seaboard to Florida. The course being similar in that both circumscribe the Atlantic coastline. They have a truck which tows their RV. We have a sailboat that tows our dinghy.
|Great food, wine and friends|

During the afternoon the boys went boogie boarding at the beach behind the campground. For the next hour Christine and I enjoyed conversations that drifted down old roads while watching our boys in the surf all from the comfort of our beach chairs.
|The Lightner Museum|
and Cafe Alcazar
The highlight of our get together came a couple of days later when Christine suggested meeting for lunch in St. Augustine at Cafe Alcazar located,in the bottom floor of the former Alcazar Hotel now the Lightner Museum built in 1887 by Henry Flagler.

now the location of Cafe Alcazar
The cafe is situated in what was once the world's largest indoor pool. The setting and lunch was as Christine described. Elegant. White tablecloths, attentive waiters, aromas of garlic and fresh seafood and a fine guitarist entertained us with his eclectic repertoire.
