St. Augustine

On our way out to St.Augustine Beach we passed this flock of Wood Storks.  They looked cold, all tucked in like that.

Hardly any people were on the beach when we got there, just a few people walking their dogs.  It was cold and windy and began to rain just a sprinkle when we were there.  We wanted to see the beach, and it didn’t take long to accomplish that!

Anastasia State Park was very near there so we went to check it out and found some trails to hike.

Then back to St. Augustine for a few hours.  The Bridge of Lions connects St. Augustine to Anastasia Island.  Two large lion statues line the entrance to the bridge.  The lions are the symbol for the Spanish royal family.

This is a draw bridge.  While we were there it opened up to let some sailboats pass through.

We spent some more time walking around the historic old town and along the water’s edge.

After sunset we went on the Holly Jolly Trolley Tour of Lights. This took us around the historic old town while playing Christmas music and stopping for cider and cookies.
