St. Augustine


Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine, Florida





I drove my car to Hilton Head Island to I could take the long way home, via St. Augustine, Florida, since it was only a few hours out of the way (as an aside: Georgia has more police officers, state troopers, and speed-trap-enforcers per capita than any other state. And yet, I am amazingly ticket-free). Founded in 1565 by the Spanish, St. Augustine is the oldest, continuously occupied community in the United States.

I think the world would be a better place with more cobblestone streets.

Sounds pretty cool, of course you better knock on wood with regard to not getting a ticket - don't want to give yourself any bad luck speedy. ;)

I'll get there one of these days.
I'm enjoying your photos.

I'd avoid Georgia if I were you... just going on past history.
Not that you speed or anything, I mean I'm sure that they are just usually out to get you! LMAO

I totally agree with your cobblestone thought.

BIG HUGS, Steph
