The St. Augustine lighthouse with a daytime cameo by the moon. A communal roost of five nanday parakeets (Aratinga nenday) in a hollow utility pole at a miniature golf course.
These birds are native to South America, but released/escaped/abandoned caged birds have been known to establish groupings in California, Texas and Florida. 219 steps to the top. Beautiful macaw at the farm. The first order Fresnel lens atop the 165 ft tall St. Augustine lighthouse. Snowy egret babies! Taken in the natural area in the farm where the birds like to nest. The farm has a natural area where the birds like to nest because the alligators control the raccoons leaving it safer to raise their chicks.
These are tri-color herons. Sunrise on St. Augustine Beach. Walk down to the Beach Comber cafe from the beach for some breakfast and mimosas - Shirts and shoes optional :) Forest of Wood next to the Lighthouse I have spent several years searching for the roseate spoonbills. Found them in the natural area within the alligator farm property. This spoonbill was squawking at something. St Augustine lighthouse as seen from Anastasia State Park. Anastasia is a great place to camp and beach. Today St. Augustine is celebrating its 450th Anniversary. Lots of events and media coverage. I think there is a big concert in town tonight. We climbed the steps to the top of St Augustine Lighthouse. Quite a spectacular view on a beautiful sunny day. St. Augustine Lighthouse (after dark). An art exhibit inside one of the basement cisterns of the keepers house. Beautiful Lighthouse! St Augustine Lighthouse Summer 2017 You can take a little drive on the #beach or just park and watch the sunset Great little city with old world charm. Very windy afternoon along beaches and the St. John's County pier. Not too many folks walking the pier. Great place to visit. It's a nice flat beach you can drive into, run, bike or take a nice walk. Stop at these 1695 remains of a Spanish chimney and well and read historical marker, near Anastasia State Park. Beautiful day at the beach and this storm suddenly blows up. Beautiful day at the beach and this storm suddenly blows up. You can drive on the beach and its a great place to run! Nice park for a walk, bird watch or to fish on Oyster Creek, just south of historic area.
