I finally ended up in Old St Augustine, FL. I've been down there a couple times since I moved here and a couple times way back when I was younger and visiting relatives who live in the lake city area.
First pic is of the Bridge of Lions, there's still a lot of construction going on there to update said bridge.
Here is the drawbridge going up while I was on the walkway. I was hoping i would get to see it!!
Walking across it gave me a jump tho with the cars going across too. very shaky! LOL
This photo is walking around the perimeter of the Castillo De San Marcos. It's free to wander outside, but the inside tour costs a few bucks. Well worth it, as I've done it in the past.
I took a few new roads and explored just a bit more than I have before, thanks to the new and improved prices on gasoline this week! It was under $3 in places!! When was the last time you'd seen THAT?? I sure can't remember.
Here is another view of the fort from the walkway on the bridge. The cross to the right of the fort is from The Mission of Nombre De Dios. Very very old church, and site of the first Parish Mass.
There's a new community opening up too, as the road didn't show up on the GPS at all. That was a nice ride on nice new roads from just north of St Augustine to Ponte Vedra Beach (lots of spas and resorts here, very posh!) area. Headed back north on the AIA, and made my way back home to relax.
Thanks for joining me on my little journey! Click to visit Skywatch to see links to hundreds more participants of the many views from around the world.
