We spent last week in St. Augustine for our summer vacation. St Augustine is the nations oldest city. It truly is a very beautiful city to visit. Such beautiful architecture and so much history!!
This is our second time vacationing here and we still didn't do everything that we wanted too.
We arrived late in the evening. After checking into our hotel and getting unpacked, we headed out to drive around the city. We spend about and hour driving around plotting what we were going to do during the week. We then headed back to the hotel to eat dinner and relax.
One of the things we did while we were there was ride the sightseeing train tour. This trolley took us all over town stopping at over 21 different places to get off and on. All the while with the trolley driver narrating the history of St. Augustine.
We also spent some time walking the old streets of the city. We stopped at the beautiful Grace Methodist Church. This old church was built in 1887.
Here is Ken, Gavin, and Danyelle sitting in front of the city gates.
These gates opened in1793 and were the only access into St. Augustine. They closed at sundown and were not opened again until sunrise. They are made entirely out of coquina shells and sand. Pretty neat to touch. Gavin loved the idea that "real" pirates built the gates. He was so excited to touch them!
This is Gavin and I sitting in front of the Castillo De San Marcos:
Have a great weekend!
