Farewell St. Augustine

Hi folks, well sadly we had to leave this wonderful town and start our journey back towards Jacksonville but before we left here are a few images of the town and you can see why it is our favourite place.

First off the front of the fantastic Lightner Museum with many types of collectables on show this building was formally an  hotel.

Close up of one of the Towers showing the wonderful carving.

 The Casa Monica Hotel opposite.

View across to the Flagler Collage.

Ornate stonework on the building.

Bridge of Lions recently rebuilt.

Castillo de San Marcos a Spanish fort on the shore of Matanzas Bay.

Detail of corner tower.

Along the shore of Matanzas Bay as the sun starts to go down.

As by magic this lovely Egret appeared in view for one of my last shots of this wonderful place.

Off to bed and up early to go towards Jacksonville and home, one more blog of Florida to go.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite, luv Mike XX
