The old school bus garage where Gypsy Cab Restaurant is now located. Bob Greggs had a used furniture and general junk store

Patio Hotel ? on St. Augustine Beach. At one time had a glass roof on the entirely surrounded central patio for guests

Sunshine Gardens, a gladiola farm just before you came to Horton's Grocery Store and gas pumps on the corner of SR16 at
Pacetti Rd. Remember your Velda Dairy Property just down the road from there. Silo Road? There is a sod farm located on the
Sunshine Gardens property and before that it was owned by Sunshine Biscuits, Inc. which was owned by Schuler that built Drew
Ranch on SR206 west of I-95. The Sunshine Gardens property was used by Schuler to grow potatoes. I wondered why such a person
would be bothered with that type of agriculture with Hastings as a competitor. His manager answered that question one day
during our conversation.
These were grown for seed potatoes which he sent north for his other farms. Mrs. Schuler would come to St. Augustine for
the winter and stayed at The Ponce de Leon Motor Lodge. When she arrived, she came by the store and bought many household
items to be delivered to her suite of rooms at the lodge. I asked her why she didn't stay at Drew Ranch. She said that was
number eight of similar mansions and they were like living in a hospital. She did not stay in them.

Sterchie's gift shop at Matanzas Inlet. Was washed away by beach erosion. A retired illustrator for Saturday Evening Post
had a service station across the street (A1A) on the curve. He would cast out his surf rigs and put his surf rod in a rod
holder with a bell on it. When he heard the bell ringing, he would run down to the beach and reel in his red bass. Why don't
we live like that now?
