I got away last week and put the blog on auto-pilot. I went to one of my favorite Florida destinations, St. Augustine. If you are not familiar with this city, it is a very special place. St. Augustine was first explored by Ponce de Leon; a Spanish explorer, in 1513. Did you notice the date? Plymouth was in 1621. St. Augustine is America's oldest established city, settled by the Spanish in 1565. (Photos: The Lightner Museum, Flagler College, Bridge of Lions, Crescent Beach area)
Also in St. Augustine is Castillo de San Marcos; oldest masonry fort in the United States, 1695.
