Boat Trip, St. Augustine!


 Here we are! On my boat, on the way into St. Augustine!




 Scampi looking at the sights......

St. Augustine was founded in 1565,
it is the oldest city and the oldest port in the continental United States.



 The wind blowing through my fur...



We passed by this cool old fort....
St. Augustine's most historically significant structure is the Castillo de San Marcos, a fort constructed by the Spanish between 1672 and 1695.




And here we are at the City Marina! more adventures tomorrow!

Such a lovely place to visit! When I lived in Gainesville I would go to the beach for the day in St Augustine. Land and sea are beautiful there!
Stay warm though!

Woooo, look at that water! The boats are beiginning their southward migration from Newport, maybe some of them are coming to visit woo in St. Augustine. I like that castillo! Looks like a good place for a knight, say...Sir Jack, to go hang out!
