Dear readers, you may remember a few months back I read a slew of books on colonial Florida’s history. I did so with purpose, for I’d then scheduled a four-day trip down to the Florida coast, with the aims of spending two days in St. Augustine. Wish me well, for I’m off to drive seven hours. I’ll be driving almost as many miles as I did in New Mexico, but with six days compressed into two. It’s Memorial Day weekend, too, but if I can handle Albuquerque during the Balloon Fiesta, I can handle anything shy of Atlanta. My rental this round is a luxurious-looking Hyundai Veloster. Yowza!
