Hi there, I have been a rather silent fan of your blog for a while. My husband and I live in Canada and are looking for a place in Florida. You mentioned that St. Augustine did not have all the things you needed and I wonder if you would be so kind as to tell me why you selected Pensacola.

I understand that you are a busy person, but if you had a minute I would love to hear your opinion on the 2 areas.

I'm always afraid of invading someone's privacy so either you know someone or you're using a zoom lens, either way these are some of your best.

@Ramataz, Hi...glad you broke your silence. Oh, your question! I love both these places so much. Both have wonderful history. But St. Augustine seems to make this history more 'public' and embraces it. And their historical district is always fun to walk. Both have beaches, but Pensacola's beach, in my opinion, is far superior. I do believe the people in St. Augustine are far more artsy and 'live let live'. Both have access to educational opportunities, but Pensacola had more in that area of what we were looking for.

I guess in the end, it was the beach and the educational opportunities that made Pensacola our choice.

We had lived in Pensacola years ago, and it always had a hold on my heart strings. But, oh, how I loved St. Augustine. It really was a difficult decision.

I would suggest visiting each place...for at least a week or more each before making this decision.

@Paula, I have never worried about that. I take my pictures from the sidewalk (don't trespass)so what images I took is exactly that...what I see from the sidewalk. I don't know anyone there. My lens was my 85mm...not considered a zoom. So I just document the neighborhood as I see it from the sidewalk. It was a wonderful morning and I greeted a few residents.

I did a lot of this type of photography in St. Augustine. Just walking the neighborhoods and snapping away. A most pleasant way to get to know the area and spend a morning.

I love Aragon and these pictures are wonderful. I drive into Pensacola just to walk around the historic district and downtown, but I rarely take photos. Like Paula, I don't want to seem intrusive. I may have to rethink that.
