We had lunch and then it was time to enjoy St. Augustine. It is a very walkable city with history at every turn. The Bridge of Lions is protected by lions on both sides.
We went to church at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine. It was a beautiful church. It was the first parish in the United States.
As evening fell, Christmas lights came on everywhere. The city was busy. We had dinner at a restaurant with a piano bar playing Christmas music. There was a jewelry store that had ballerinas from the local dance school dancing as if they were on the top of a jewelry box. We saw them as we went up to the parade and back. What talented young ladies they were.
There was a re-enactment of a Torch Parade from the fort. They marched from the fort to the City Square. There were fifes and drums.
Sunday, the sun came out but so did the wind. When some of the boats were leaving, there were some close calls at the marina.
