Got back to the boat after the parade at St. Augustine.  A little explanation later on.

Today we travelled with Yeterday' Dream down the ICW from Beach Marine into St. Augustine harbor. We elected to stay on a mooring ball, only $20 per night.  We are at the far SE corner of the mooring field but past the lift bridge which is good for Monday morning.

It rained off and on but we were dry behind the Bimini and dodger canvas.

Linda and Francis Miko joined us for dinner and we had a great time at this little Polish/Greek
restaurant.  The owners are from Poland but their child was born in Greece.

After dinner and ice cream we watched the parade celebrating the 20 years that St. Augustine was under British rule from 1763 to 1783.  This part of our country switched back and forth.  St. Augustine was founded in 1565, makes it the oldest city in America.

The British Celebration of Lights.  Besides the people dressed up in period costumes, ordinary people walk in the parade carrying candle and other lights.
