On Monday afternoon, November 3rd around 5 p.m., we watched a seaplane taxi up the Intracoastal around Porpoise Point and up to Vilano. It had just landed after having flown over the area. Here's a photo I took.
Seaplane in Vilano 1
I now learn that the seaplane had an accident yesterday, November 4th just north of the Usina (Vilano) Bridge. I have not seen this seaplane before and it was exciting to see him in the St. Augustine area. I am glad the pilot is well and hope to see him again soon.
Here are some news reports:
