British Night Watch at St. Augustine

Half of November was enjoyably spent in northeastern Florida at Lou's Little Ponderosa. Lou is an old friend of Keith's and his home is an interesting and lively place. Because Lou loves music, he sponsors weekly jam sessions of bluegrass and other types of music. Another of his hobbies is wine-making. What an enjoyable combination; to sit and listen and sip wine under his open-air "barn" that includes a full kitchen and lots of twinkle lights.

The rock band that practices there came with it's own RVer couple, so Lou's private campground was put to use as it had been in the past when he sponsored square dance weekends.

We all shared a delicious Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings. I didn't mind a bit that the weather was warm and pleasant, even though it was a bit untraditional.

St. Augustine is an interesting city nearby that Keith and I enjoy visiting. We lucked into a re-enactment held there each fall. The British held Castillo San Marcos for a short period during the Revolution. Locals and travelers recreated the British occupation and offered wonderful entertainment. I wish I knew the name of the pictured group. They have researched old sailor chanties and sang them with the same lusty zest they originally had.
