The beach reclamation is coming along. They should be doing our section very soon. You can see the new "sand" quite clearly in these shots.

Finally got Dorothy up in the air down at our new condo complex in St. Augustine beach. Then her battery quickly died, so a new one is on order. But, here are a couple of shots. Our condo is the top left one in the first shot.

I got back to the Well Fed Community Garden (Irregardless Cafe).

Here's another shot of the new train station, from the other side. The old one is so tiny compared to it!

We were at the beach this weekend. They are dredging again and emptying it on "our" beach. I'm not a big fan, but what can we do (besides get some aerial footage of it)? They need some sand further down, toward the pier, but we seem to be doing fine already.

We wanted to see Dorothy's view of the damage from the big fire Thursday night. The parking garage to the left had cars blowing up in it. The tall brick building is the Quorum, where Charley's boss used to live. The Quorum and the white complex in the front (the Link apartments) have been temporarily condemned. Hopefully those folks will be able to move back in pretty soon. Kudos to the firefighters who managed to save every structure around the one that burned.
