I just came back from a business trip to St. Augustine, Fla., although it sure didn’t feel like business. The city was great and its wonderful history surrounded everything, everyone and everywhere. I can’t wait to go back and finish where I left off, because two days in a city like this just won’t do. One place of the many I crammed in was the lighthouse. It’s a notable landmark of this area, and walking through it felt like stepping in the exact footsteps of people who worked in there every day.
This lighthouse was built in 1870, replacing its earlier counterparts which was a wooden version all the way back in ~1565, and another in 1683 made of coquina stone.
More photos are to come, but here are a few. The first two lighthouse photos will become a part of my new online shop soon, if you’re interested in purchasing one.
