    Thanks for all the posts about St. Augustine! We looked through your pictures last night and enjoyed seeing many of our favorite sights (and our favorite gift shop employee!). It's especially great to see the lions. They have been in storage the last couple of times we've been there while they were repairing the bridge.

    Um, we're pretty much in love with St. Augustine–by far our favorite little spot in Florida. I KNOW–the lions were awesome, and the locals are so proud of them–it was so fortunate that they were back by the bridge. It was lovely meeting your mother-in-law; we had a fabulous time at dinner.

    Miss you guys!
