So, instead of setting sail, we hit the road and headed north. Before we moved to Miami, when we said we were heading "north," we meant we were going to northern Michigan, Maine, or Canada. Now, "north" refers to anything north of Miami-Dade County. The destination of this particular northern journey was St. Augustine.
Highlights from the trip included getting to spend the afternoon with Sea Gem's previous and original owners, walking the grounds of the beautiful Flagler College (Helina's first official college visit), exploring the Castillo de San Marcos, and watching Helina's first encounter with a house-size toilet (she thought it was a drum).
Our vacation (and staycation) gave us many happy memories, but it also taught us a valuable lesson: vacationing on land with a baby is just as stressful as sailing with one, therefore, it is best to just go sailing.
