The Niña & Pinta Leave St. Augustine, FL

The early bird may get the worm, but I was very fortunate this morning to capture the Niña and the Pinta as they were leaving St. Augustine. It was a little before 6:30 this morning when I noticed what I thought were shrimp boats heading back to sea. I thought they were shrimp boats as we had rough waters last night and thought they had come into the St. Augustine inlet for safe harbor, as they are known to do. The photo below shows both ships. One is heading east towards the inlet, the other one has already made the turn as is heading north up the Intracoastal. The St. Augustine Lighthouse is in the background.

Well as the two vessels passed the inlet and continued heading north on the Intracoastal Waterway, I realized what they were and leapt for my camera.

I would have taken pictures of the shrimp boats, too, as many of you know. But this was exciting to have them this close in the early morning hours.

I knew they were visiting St. Augustine from May 5- 17th leaving on the 18th, but the days they just fly by. Here's the video I took:
