This year we went to St. Augustine, Florida and met up with Mac's cousin and his wife. They'd been on a 10 day Caribbean cruise and then a visit to a number of spring training baseball games. It was great to see them.
St. Augustine is the oldest continuously inhabited European city in America. It was founded by the Spanish in 1565. The English had it for a while and then returned it to the Spanish and the United States bought Florida from them. Beautiful little city, only about 12,000 full time residents, though it was packed for the St. Patrick's Day weekend.
We talked, we laughed, told old stories and ate way too much. It was so much fun that later this year we're going to see if we can meet up again and do Memphis.
