St. Augustine
Florida
,
We left rainy Nashville for a dry,
sunny 10a.m. in St. Augustine.

We couldn’t check into our bed
and breakfast yet, so we visited
the Castillo de San Marco first,
wandering its rooms and gazing
out at Anastasia Island from its
walls.

We bought 2-day tickets for Old
Town Trolley Tours. As we rode
around the city, we were told
about forts, Flagler College, civil
rights history, hotels-turned-
museums, and Spanish
architecture.

In early March, the weather was
perfect for trolley rides and
walking tours—low 70s, and a cool
breeze coming off the ocean.

The Floridian—local, farm-fresh, flavorful.

On Day 3, we picked up iced
coffees at The Kookaburra, a
coffee shop five minutes from the
beach. Then we settled down to
read and enjoy the salt wind.

Our final full day in St. Augustine, we
visited the oldest house in America.

adjacent museum.

St. Augustine, you were lovely.
Goodbye.
