The view from my kitchen, not too shabby tonight...🌅 Sunrise Florida sunsets...
My backyard 🌄 The beautiful Memorial Presbyterian church in St. Augustine, one of my favorite landmarks in the town. Took this snap while I was on a trolley ride. I haven't been able to step inside yet, but it's on my list for my next trip. My backyard...pre-hurricane Irma 🌪 The St. Augustine lighthouse with a daytime cameo by the moon. Salt Life 🌼 I managed to catch the cannon in mid-fire, but I'm imagining that it will be improperly cropped. Flagler College was built as a hotel for snowbirds in 1888. Go on a tour of Flagger College and you can walk into the old ballroom, which is now a dining room for the college. The entire ceiling and walls of the room are hand painted. This mural highlights a stained glass window & was one of my favorites. Whether you live in Florida, or are visiting, St. Augustine Fort is a must. Rich with history, and beautiful views. My backyard!
Why are the most beautiful sunsets always before a hurricane hits? The St Augustine Lighthouse rises 165 feet above sea level and contains 219 steps. It is open for visitors to climb to the top. It has a really neat museum as well in the light keepers house.
#colorful The drawbridge opens to the Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest fort in Florida. #architecture #roadtrip #InStone If you ever make it to St. Augustine, you must pay a visit to The Chocolate Turtle for dessert. We managed to find the best Key Lime Pie in Florida...and it's not in the Florida Keys. Okay, maybe that's stretching it a bit, but this one came in a close second place. #Delicious #foodiefinds #sweetspot 219 steps to the top. Students of Flagler College are able to eat their meals in a dining hall surrounded by Tiffany stained glass windows. Deja vu...
We had the same beautiful sunsets in my backyard before Hurricane Matthew hit last year. Looks like Hurricane Irma is on her way...🌪 Beautiful macaw at the farm. The first order Fresnel lens atop the 165 ft tall St. Augustine lighthouse. Hi Ho...Hi Ho...it's off to work I go... A visit to Florida = a visit to St. Augustine, the oldest city in the U.S. Okay, that's a bit ambitious considering most people visit Florida for Miami and the beaches. St. Augustine is about 5.5 hours away from all that, but it's definitely worth a visit if you plan on doing a road trip around the state. I have been to St. Augustine many times in my life, but I recently did a road trip over the summer and paid another visit to this very old town. The old buildings and relaxed atmosphere are a true vacation for someone who is always surrounded by the hectic culture of Miami.
This fortress marks one of the oldest pieces of #architecture in the country. While walking through its walls, you'll see the barracks, apartments, and prisons that held its people during the beginning of Florida's colonization. #roadtrip I am not sure why I always notice this type of sign. They just seem to give you a lot of options for where you may want to go next! This specific sign doesn't have quite as many options as some. It can be found in St. Augustine, FL. Looking for a little lunch

Taken in the natural area in the farm where the birds like to nest. Castillo de San Marcos is the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States, in the city of St. Augustine, Florida. It was built when Florida was under rule of the Spanish Empire as a defensive measure following attacks by the British.
It's located on the western shore of Matanzas Bay with stunning views across the water.

#waterlust #StunningStructures One of the canons at the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. I loved the color and detail. The Castillo has canon firings on the weekend from the gun deck. Ocean Therapy @ Crescent Beach 🌊 Built by Henry Flagler, the Alcazar Hotel opened as a companion to the Ponce de Leon in 1888. The building, one of the first multi-storied structures in the country constructed with poured concrete, was designed by John M. Carrere and Thomas Hastings who modeled its facade after a Moorish palace in Southern Spain. The hotel remained closed from 1932 until publisher O.C. Lightner purchased the building from the Florida East Coast Hotel Company in 1947 and deeded it to the city for use as a museum for his extensive collection of Victorian memorabilia. In 1969, the voters of St. Augustine approved a bond issue to renovate the structure to house the museum and also municipal offices. After remodeling, the building was dedicated as St. Augustine City Hall on April 27, 1973. The Lightner Museum reopened to the public on August 12, 1974. Grace United Methodist Church is a reminder of the tremendous physical impact Henry M. Flagler had on St. Augustine. This complex of structures resulted from a compromise between Flagler and the congregation of Olivet Church. That group of northern Methodists agreed to exchange the land on which their church and parsonage stood for a new complex designed by John M. Carrere and Thomas Hastings. Flagler, in turn, employed the same architects in designing his Alcazar Hotel, which rose on the former Olivet site. Construction began in 1886 and was dedicated in January 1888. The church and parsonage are excellent examples of the Spanish Renaissance Revival Style of architecture, and the decision to execute the design in poured concrete resulted in unusual and aesthetically pleasing structures which have stood the tests of time and the elements. Grace United Methodist Church was entered in the National Register of Historic Places on November 29, 1979. 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. A beautiful sunset lights up St Augustine. #goldenhour The Old City, Downtown St. Augustine...Xmas lights voted to be in the Top 10 in the world by National Geographic... Just one of the many quaint restaurants in the Old City 🌃 The fort in the oldest city in the United States. St. Augustine Florida The Lightner Museum is a museum of antiquities, mostly American Victorian, housed within a historic hotel building in downtown St. Augustine, Florida, USA. The building, in a Spanish Renaissance Revival style, is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The museum occupies three floors of the former Hotel Alcazar, commissioned by Henry M. Flagler to appeal to wealthy tourists who traveled there on his railroad, and built in 1887 in the Spanish Renaissance style. It was designed by architects Carrère and Hastings, who also designed the Ponce de León Hotel across the street (now part of Flagler College). Both buildings are notable as being among the earliest examples of poured concrete buildings in the world. These architects later designed the New York Public Library and the U.S. Senate office building Forest of Wood next to the Lighthouse The calm after the Hurricane...
(Still kite flying weather) Cheers! 🍸@ the Colombian The magnificent structure was erected between 1885 and 1887 by Henry M. Flagler, the hotel and railroad magnate whose activities contributed greatly to the development of Florida's eastern coastal area. Designed by the New York architectural firm of Carrere and Hastings, the building reflects the Spanish Renaissance style throughout. The hotel was the first major edifice in the United States to be constructed of poured concrete, a mixture of cement, sand, and coquina shell. The interior is decorated with imported marble, carved oak, and murals painted by Tojetti and George W. Maynard. Its stained glass windows were created by Louis Tiffany of New York. The Ponce de Leon Hotel was the flagship of the Flagler hotel system which soon extended all along the east coast of Florida. Located in the 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. 4th of July fireworks from the Lions Bridge. 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 is such a pretty place. This is the view over the harbor.

Aftermath of Hurricane Irma The best Seared Tuna Salad I've ever eaten👌🏻@ Harry's Restaurant overlooking the Bridge of Lions 🦁 We had a nice visit with great friend from New York for several days in St. Augustine and had a fun time watching the sunset at the Tini Martini Bar. The lights were over the top and the specialty martinis were extraordinary. The parish of St. Augustine, which dates from the celebration of a mass on September 8, 1565, by the Spaniard Pedro Menendez and his men, is the oldest Catholic parish within the present day United States. During Queen Anne's War, the English Governor of South Carolina, James Moore, raided St. Augustine and destroyed an earlier church. Plagued by financial difficulties, the parish was unable to construct a new church until this coquina edifice was begun in 1793. Completed in 1797, it became a cathedral in 1870 when St. Augustine was elevated to a diocese. Augustin Verot was invested as the first bishop. In 1887, fire severely damaged the cathedral, but the facade and walls remained standing and were preserved when the building was restored in 1887-1888. The chancel, transept and campanile were added at that time. Further restoration was carried out in 1965. Markland, the Anderson family home, has been a local landmark since 1843. Dr. Andrew Anderson, a prominent civic leader, laid the foundations of the coquina shellstone house in 1839 just before his death in a yellow fever epidemic. The original house, which forms the east wing of the present building was completed by his widow, Clarissa Anderson.
His son, the second Dr. Andrew Anderson, developed the Markland orange grove, which extended from present-day Cordova St. westward to the San Sebastian River, into one of the most famous groves in Florida, after the Civil War.
As a friend and business associate of Dr. Anderson, Henry M. Flagler purchased the eastern portion of the grove in the 1880's for the site of the Hotel Ponce de Leon.
After the death of Dr. Anderson in 1924, the house was purchased by St. Augustine mayor, Herbert E. Wolfe who sold it to Flagler College in 1968. St. Augustine had no Protestant church when it became an American town in 1821. At first a united Protestant church was favored. Many denominations sent missionaries such as Presbyterian Eleazer Lathrop, who first arrived in 1821. By October, 1823, the few resident Presbyterians had decided to build their own church. Rev. Wm. McWhir arrived to organize the congregation. In 1824, the First Presbyterian Church was constituted and a cornerstone was laid for a structure. That church, which was located on St. George Street, housed Florida's first formally constituted Presbyterian congregation until 1890. Lion guarding the A1A bridge West entrance to the Lions Bridge in St. Augustine Fl. It feels like Christmas 🎄 & Florida!! Not a bad view from where I'm standing in the kitchen👍 We hadn't been back in a few years. The view fit the mood of the evening. A motel for magicians. The specialized boutique lodgings are out of control... The Villa Zorayda was constructed in 1883 as the winter home of Franklin Smith, a Boston millionaire who was so impressed by the magnificence of the Alhambra Palace which he saw during a visit to Granada, Spain, that he decided to build his house as an exact replica of one wing of the palace at one-tenth of the original size. the 12th century palace had been built by the Moors who had ruled Spain for six centuries before being expelled in 1492. Smith, a gifted amateur architect, designed the house himself, using the innovative technique of constructing the building with poured concrete reinforced with crushed coquina stone. Many other materials used in finishing the residence were imported from Spain. In 1913, the building was bought by Abraham S. Mussallem. In 1922, it became a nightclub and gambling casino which closed in 1925 when Florida outlawed gambling. In 1936, it was opened as a tourist attraction called the Zorayda Castle, exhibiting items fitting the architectural theme of the building. The property was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. Oldest city in North America - Very cool fort. Good history. They do a reenactment of how the soldiers would have fired a cannon and actually fire a shot! The area has beautiful views and there are tons of shops & restaurants around the area.
