Short stop at the Saturday Morning Farmers Market

I mainly wanted to talk to someone at the market, but I snapped a couple of pictures along the way.

The Lady in the Brown Hat

That would be me. I have once again walked the streets of St. Augustine (not to be confused with street walking) armed with my Nikon D40, an umbrella and my lovely, floppy brown hat.

This area was more old, and I do mean old, neighborhoods full of some of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen. So, I will start with the homes. More specifically, the porches of said homes.

If you've looked at this blog before this, you realize I have a soft spot for windows. It is something you will have to get use to. I did.

I visited the grounds of Flagler College and The Lightner Museum. They were across the street from each other, so here are some pictures from them both. A little history...
The college is named after Henry Morrison Flagler, a Gilded Age industrialist, railroad pioneer and oil magnate. In 1888, he built the luxury resort Hotel Ponce de Leon, which now serves as a residence hall and centerpiece for the college. A masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture, Ponce de Leon Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The grand hotel launched the careers of famous architects John Carrere and Thomas Hastings. Thomas Edison personally helped make Ponce the first building in Florida wired with electricity, and Louis Comfort Tiffany decorated the building’s interior with stained glass, mosaics and several commissioned murals.

The hotel was sold to Flagler College when the institution was founded in 1968.
