Saying goodbye to El Galeon | News
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- At 9:00 a.m. Monday, the Bridge of Lions opened up and the tall ship from Spain passed through. El Galeon left St. Augustine, bound for New York.
People lined the bridge, marina and bay front to say farewell to the 170-foot ship.
The ship was slated to be in St. Augustine for two weeks, but because of its success and wide popularity, the ship extended its stay which lasted two months.
El Galeon is expected to return to St. Augustine at the end of the year or early next year.
