Kurt and I went to the Columbia, a Spanish restaurant that is a
central/northern Florida chain of about six restaurants, headquartered in
Ybor, Florida. The food is excellent, abundant and a bit pricey but well
worth it. The restaurant in St. Augustine is in the Spanish Quarter,
several blocks long running parellel to the ocean, one end starting across
the street from the Castillo De San Marcos.
I had trouble finding a close parking spot so we ended up parked on a
residential street several blocks west of the Spanish Quarter. A fifteen
minute walk brought us to the restaurant. Afterwards, we walked back to the
car, finding it quite easily, but I got turned around driving back to the
Inn, finding myself driving south along US-1 for about five minutes before
getting my bearings and turning around.
Fifteen minutes later we were back at the Inn.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
