We spent two nights with Tom and Glenna in Ponte Vedra Beach. Their community has a tunnel under the road to the beach. The temperature ws a little chilly (quite balmy by Ohio standards) but we had a nice visit.
We drove the A1A to a ferry at Mayport and followed A1A down to Ponte Vedra Beach. Walked to the ocean via Tom's tunnel and saw some of the damage that the last few year's storms had done to boardwalks on the oceanfront properties.
We lunched at Aunt Kate's on the Intercoastal Waterway and had a nice view of the water (from inside!!)
The next day we traveled through St. Augustine to Ken and Sandy's. They have a very nice place across the road from the St. Johns River. We yakked with them until about midnight.
Next day we went into the old part of St. Augustine and had a tram tour which was most informative - lots of historical details.
On the return trip, we were worried by a storm heading for the Ohio Valley. We drove from St. Augustine to Beckley in a day, leaving us only about a four hour drive the second day. Luckily, the weather held off until we were about 5 miles from home. That took about 20 minutes in near white-out conditions!
Well, here we are, back in Ohio. Why??????
