Back at the boat, we gave them a tour of the boat and headed out the inlet. Colleen and I spent most of the time out on the bow. Colleen never dreamed she would be sailing on a sailboat and even got teary eyed at moments. She loved it. Dave and Gene tried their hand at fishing, but this area is really over fished, so no luck. They enjoyed discussing all the mechanics of sailing.

Back on shore, we went out for dinner at O.C. White’s. The building was built in 1790 and was originally a hotel, one of the first in St Augustine. Excellent fish and hamburger (Dave finally found a place that would cook it medium).
Below are a couple of Colleen's videos. When you have guests, you see things you wouldn't have thought to share. The first one shows the main sail coming out of the mast furler. The second one is the pelicans on the water that we see quite often. Thanks Colleen
