Fun Outing

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Went to St. Augustine's Lighthouse with a good friend yesterday. She had a coupon so it was free and included a tour of the site. I have visited St. Augustine many times including exploring the fort, attending concerts, going to the beach, shopping, and meandering down the historic St. George Street. This was the first time I'd toured the lighthouse. It was interesting to learn about archeology and shipwreck artifact recovery. Also learning about the lighthouse and the associated evolving technology.

This is a shot of me at the top of the lighthouse.

    I have climbed to the top of our local light house in Mossel Bay so I know how many stairs that entails. Congrats for the work out and the reward being the view.

    I too have been to St. Augustine a million times and have never made it to the lighthouse! Wonder why? Oh yes, I always end up at a barwith my friends instead of touring ANYTHING!

But you sure are looking good, aren't you? And the weather was THE BEST yesterday! I amso glad you had fun!

    Looks like you had a great time! I love field trips! Especially those of a historical value. Being in Texas, I have toured the Alamo and surrounding missions and other historic sites. I will be taking a short trip there with my grandkids in March. Plan on doing a lot of walking and exploring especially with my 8 year old grandson. Thanks for sharing this!
