Julia and I enjoyed showing the shoes the ropes ... the nautical ropes, of St. Augustine! We walked along the Matanzas, watching the sailboats and jetskis, rowboats and cruisers enjoying this inlet. The shoes asked to walk to the top of the lighthouse that you can see in the background, but we decided to save its heels and not walk the 219 steps to the top! The Bridge of Lions crossing the Matanzas is an old fashioned draw bridge that was built long ago, in the days when Henry Flagler was helping St. Augustine become a classy little tourist town.
