This week I grew a new pair of legs. A mobility scooter. Why did I never have one of these before?? I'm asking myself that question. So much freedom, so much fun. So many people to run... oh, i mean so many people to say "hi" to on my way around the town :) I can go 4 miles per hour and even faster if i'm going downhill with a tail wind. There are not a lot of hills here in Florida though...which is fortunate since I didn't charge it one night and on my escapade yesterday I had to push the scooter home. Stop laughing.
Anyway, St Augustines, who's been there? ME! Pick me pick me! Me and the OZ went there on Friday. It's a beautiful beach with a pier you can walk out onto and go fishing. We didn't fish as we had no fishing gear. We saw a turtle swimming in the water, that was cool :) There were lots of schools of small fish swimming around and lots of people surfing and swimming. It was a gorgeous day and I even got a bit of a tan. St Augustines is a very old town full of great little shops and old buildings, including the oldest wooden school building in the USA. We thought it would be great to go up the lighthouse, but when you have the walking skills of a bucket it's not the best idea you can have.

Top tip for this blog: Never ride a mobility scooter into a head wind with a skirt on. Sorry to those people down at the shopping centre today...
