High view of St. Augustine and Last Blog for a day or Two

Hi folks,

Lovely day today, so we made the most of it and made our way to the Lighthouse and me to climb the 219 stairs to the top. We also went to the beach, well lets get started.

We had a job to find it with the car and with hindsight taken the Trolley to the site.

The staircase is 219 steps to the top, so I left Sue in the shop to look around whilst I started the climb.

Well, I made it to the top with a couple of breathers on the way. Looking over I could see the  extended light house keepers residence.

Shadow of the lighthouse from the top, the green is the top of the tree camopy

St Augustine from the top, you can see the town in the distance. It is such a beautiful town with loads on lovely buildings including the Flagler College and Museum .

Wider view showing the Bridge of Loins to the right.

Back on earth and a breather we went to the beach, these are sea oats growing in the sand.

The sand in the beech is so fine you really have to watch the camera but as the wind had dropped I chanced it. Look ant the sand it glistened in the sun.

Last shot of my warm foot showing how soft the sand was.

Thanks for looking, thousands of other images to look at once we get home, when we get home that is.

The blog has only just scratched the surface. Glad you have all tagged along.

The next blog will be when we get home.

Update on travel, just checked the Airport and all on time (fingers crossed) also many thanks to James for a wonderful day.

nite, nite, luv Mike and Sue XX
