St Augustine, FL

Report:
1) Wonderful Towboat US - they brought me in and got me settled when I was having fuel problems.
2)  St. Augustine Municipal Marina - clean, well staffed, helpful, competitively priced.  A bit tricky to get in, the currents around the Bridge of Lyons are pretty severe.  Once in the slip they are not a concern.  Showers and rest rooms (at least the mens') were clean and well cared for.
3) The city was a big disappointment.  First, they roll up the sidewalks at 9 PM.  Not much fun for a sailor.  There is a pedestrian only street that is very pretty.  But it is all shops and a couple of very mediocre restaurants  Sort of Duval St. without any bars.  Yes, sounds ugly and it is.  I would be remiss however if I did not point out that I saw more very good looking women of all ages in a one hour tour than I have elsewhere except in Key West during Spring Break..
