St. Augustine on Sunday

I wasn't able to leave as early as I usually would, but I still managed to make it down there shortly after sun-up. I didn't bother with the beach this time. I parked the car in a nearby garage, and headed to the Castillo De San Marcos fort. Chatted up a random photog (one of many I saw today) for a few minutes about our favorite spots and time of day for shooting, and parted ways.

I spent quite a few minutes watching some chickens, roosters and babies over by Flagler College. A local told me there was 3 chicks, and after a trip crossing the road, there were only 2. Mama still seemed to be looking for that 3rd baby.

I had been messing around with my camera settings this morning, and while some of it worked, some of it didn't. This shot is pretty blurry, but you can still tell what it is.
Shortly after noon, I was back home to listen to The Red Sox game.
This is one of my fave pics I got today.

Yikes getting up before sunrise on a Sunday! How ambitious hehe. Sunrise shot looks worth it.

Wonderful shots. You were up so early on Saturday - I admire your dedication. That is indeed a lovely area...

Jeanne: yes it was...kinda hard to drive, and keep looking to the east to see if I'm going to make it to the beach in time..LOL

Lynn: Somehow my date change didn't work in blogger, it was actually sunday. Should have just used a new post instead of using a previously started one. :)
But yes, So historic there, and very interesting!
