On to Florida

Our Holiday trip included a lot of driving . After visiting daughter number four in beautiful Charlotte, NC. We celebrated Christmas with daughter number two in Atlanta, Ga. Instead of heading back to Texas we continued on over to the east coast, visiting Savannah, Ga. (previous post). and now we are in St. Augustine, Florida.
St. Augustine is the United States oldest city, founded by the Spanish in the year 1565. The weather didn't keep us from being tourists.
Castillo de San Marcos the Spanish fort that is now part of the National Park System

It is a fun place to explore...with costumed soldiers and exploding cannons!
The Historic area has some beautiful old restored houses. Love those porches!
There are numerous  sightseeing tours to choose from...some with clever modes of transportation..
Cute restaurants, coffee shops and places to shop.

We are headed further south. Deep into southern Florida! This truck loaded with fresh picked oranges reminding us where we are!


  1. oh, that's neat! love the last shot of the truck full of sunshine!

  2. Strange little town and that's a lot of oranges.


  3. Didn't know it could rain in Florida, funny those old costumes. Love to sea the oranges.

  4. We stayed a few days in St. Augustine in April of 2012. Had taken our kids there years ago and still like that historic city very much! Like it much better than the newer sprawling oceanside area of condos and resorts.
