Blogging By the Sea
Tuesday, June 14 2011

For the last month and a half, I've been volunteering at the Spanish Quarter in the heart of the ancient city. Since I love history and I love my little city and this combines both, it's been the perfect way to give something back. Occasionally, I sit and sew or mend, but mostly I've been working in the leatherworking shop. Marco is a master leatherworker and is most generous with his time and expertise. I have a fellow apprentice, Alan who also makes the day fly by when I am there. Marco helped me design and make a pair of period sandals to go with my get-up and a money purse for my dollar coins. Next up a bag to carry the rest of my stuff in. I've also made dice cups that sell in the la Taberna. They play a game there called Shut the Box - it's like Lays potato chips - you can't just play one game. I have yet to win, but I love trying. I'm slowly learning the  history of Spanish St. Augustine and enjoying my time there immensely. Next time you're in St. Augustine, come on over and say Hola!
