Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine

Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States, the Castillo de San Marcos is a large Spanish stone fortress built to protect and defend Spain’s claims in the New World. It’s a National Monument and, is over 315 years old, it’s the oldest structure in the entire city.

The bridge over to Anastasia.  I did like this bridge, very picturesque.

Just loved that hat, was so right for not getting burnt to a cinder. The crochet shrug I'm carrying around is not to keep warm, but to put on to stop from being burnt, but then of course you can't stand it because you are far too hot and it lands up where it is dangling on my bag.

We were being terribly cheap and did not want to pay the fee to visit the fort.  I guess when you've visited castles and forts in Europe, this falls a bit, if not a lot short of that, so we were content to just walk around the outside.

Just having fun with Picasa

I do like the above sketch style photo.
