Scenes from the weekend...

Hello Monday!

We had a terrific weekend of fabulous weather and we really did all that we could to enjoy it.

On Saturday we took a little road trip to visit the Oldest City in America, St. Augustine Florida. We had a great day and here are some highlights of the city.

The City Gates..................

This is how they originally looked. The picture above is taken on the inside view. I love history.

The oldest wood school house in the USA.

Casillo de San Marcos
...was built to protect and defend Spain's claim on the New was never defeated. It's scarred walls still stand witness to over 330 years of history and culture. (via

We had lunch here at the White Lion....perfect view of the Casillo de San Marcos

The Columbia is a world renowned restaurant...

The Historic Ponce de Leon Hotel is now home to Flagler College

Lightner Museum is housed in the former Alcazar Hotel, built in spanish style by Henry Flagler in 1888

Trinity Parish Church, Established in 1821, is the oldest Protestant church in Florida

I'm not sure of these last two pictures, they are named but I failed to take note. They are pretty none the less.

I hope you enjoyed this bit of history of our nation. It's a beautiful town, lots to do and see and great shopping. I'll post more about the shopping in another post.

Have a great week.
