A short trip to St. Augustine

We took a car trip to St. Augustine, on the east coast of Florida. It was a pretty quick drive through Orlando to Daytona Beach.... then we took the slow road north to St. Augustine.  It's a lovely city, filled with fun (and lots of tourist attractions).

Our favorites were the very special...and very old places that set the tone for the oldest continuously inhabited city in the United States.  

Castillo De San Marcos National Monument
Oldest Fort in the USA

The Fort is on the Inter coastal waterway
A perfect spot on a perfect day.

Nombre de Dios Mission
A beautiful and quiet place
St. Francis watches over the garden.

A small chapel in honor of family

The Flagler College was once the Flagler Hotel.
One of the many beautifully appointed hotels
of a railway Magnate
(also, Co-Founder of Standard Oil)

And.... for Sweet Hubby..
What a Historical experience...
The World Golf Hall of Fame!!
