Oldest town in United States

St. Augustine, Florida. That is where we live. And it is the oldest town in the US! I'm pretty excited about that.

We took a trip into St. Augustine. Mostly business. Had to get the brakes checked on the VW, so we made use of the time it was in the shop and did a little sightseeing.

We, of course, went to the light house. I have an unusual love for lighthouses. Something about how they are steadfast and showing the way. Love them. This one is no exception. It is a sight to see against the blue Florida sky.

Magnificent


It was a typical Florida afternoon...translate as hot and sultry. There was not a breeze. The oaks were silent guards to the lighthouse entrance. They are breath taking. The branches seem to have no direction...growing up, down, sideways. As hot as it was, under the oaks it was surprisingly cool. Tranquil.

The tour ended on a sweet note. Sitting on the benches under the awning, we had an award winning key lime pie from Captain Jack's! The chef is from Key West and entered his pie in a key lime pie competition . It won best in the state. I certainly agree! I tried to talk the waitress into getting me the recipe, but no luck.

Tangy, sweet, cool...
