After our owner's meeting Tuesday morning - we ate a quick lunch and headed to town. Our meeting got us free tickets for the week to the trolley tour, and the tour begins at the jail, where they have free parking. The parking in town can run $10, and is hard to find even at that pricing, so we took advantage of that trolley option.
The Old St. Johns County Jail was a neat way to start our adventure.
We didn't sense any ghosts, but one woman thought that Allan was one when she had assumed he was one of these figures, and then he moved. We got a good laugh out of that. We were able to wander in, about and around the cell blocks on both floors within the guided tour.
The guide also told us how this bird cage was raised with a troublesome prisoner inside and the locals would throw food at them. The prisoners would be on display long enough that they'd eventually have to figure out how to go to the bathroom, and the hope was that that humiliation would turn them into a better behaved prisoner.
Between you and me, I'd be a little nervous if I were Wendy.
More to come.
As a heads up - my blog host, Typepad, has been having some serious attack issues this last week. Those are the reasons for the error messages, etc. They are working on it, so hopefully everything will be working smoothly again real soon.
