The sign says it all...
Today we drove north up to St. Augustine, the oldest city in the U.S. and yet another nearby attraction that I've never been to despite my 10 years of annual visits to the area. The place was super cool. St Augustine is an old Spanish Colonial settlement dating back to the 16oos. The Spanish influence was the first thing that you notice as soon as you get into the older sections of town. I'm not one who usually likes touring old things but this place was different. We also poked around inside the Castillo de San Marco, the fortress that protected the city and bay area from British forces. I think next week I'm gonna ride up to St. Augustine, cruise around on the bike and then head back. It'll be around 118 miles. But it's Florida, so it will be completely flat. No...seriously. And now for the pics:

Downtown St. Augustine...felt like Europe
