Before I can start, however, the City must unpack the lab. Carl's lab and offices recently moved from the Government House in the heart of downtown St. Augustine to a renovated warehouse owned by the City, just west of US 1. Walking through on my first visit, I couldn't be more thrilled. There is ample space for collections, a lab, offices, and plenty of room to grow. It was a thing of beauty, and just the facility that the program has needed.
As for me, I started my work by reuniting with my babies, my files. I spent the first morning unpacking files-- 20 years of City digs-- and lovingly placing them in their new cabinets. It was good to be together again.
