Visiting St. Augustine, Florida

Castillo de San Marcos
I have been docked, moored, and anchored in St. Augustine a number of times. This past few days I did something else, actually spend a lot of time walking around and visiting various historical sites in the town.

St. Augustine was founded by the Spanish and is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the United States. Extensively developed by Henry Flagler (and others) it is now reminiscent of the various "cruise ship" ports in the Caribbean. There are lots of little shops and bars etc.

There are also a lot of fun historical sites to visit. Some that we have sampled include:

Castillo de San Marcos (above)
Lightner Museum
Flagler College
Villa Zoroyda

St. Augustine Tourism site has the details. Anyway, quite a break from the normal visit.

Fair winds and following seas :)
