Some of the lead-in comments were quite telling. It was going to be a night to remember.
My husband and sons are making the journey up there…they can’t wait! I even wrote my boys an excuse for school that said they were taking “an educational trip to St. Augustine”.
*hits head against wall repeatedly* Last year, my folks and I visited St. Augustine so I could visit Ripley’s there (cause I’m a Ripley fanatic), and word for word I told my parents: “This couldn’t have possibly been a better kind of day.”
Apparently I was a year too early
Come to Nova Scotia, Loren! Pleeeease Dx
I love the South. Thanks to everyone, and I totally enjoyed Ripley’s.
Loren, You absolutely made Tony, Adam and my weekend! It was a real pleasure meeting you and we also appreciated you posing with us for a picture. Enjoy your visit in Saint Augustine
I enjoyed meeting you tonight as well, Loren! Thanks for a great chat.

The “MonsterQuest” and “Wife Swap” television personalities, Rob and Tracy Robinson plus two of their kids, spent the night talking to me. Rob, despite his seemingly professional military external presence, is a gentle man with a heart of gold. He had good stories to share. He is matched well by his sweet, engaging mate Tracy. We had a good visit, during a lively turnout at the signing, on a cold night where there were not too many visitors to St. Augustine. Thank you all for coming out to visit.
Onward to search for what remains of the Florida Monster of 1896 in St. Augustine today….culturally, at least.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
