St Augustine, FL – Anastasia

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , at 7:55 pm by diandy2004

Our next stop was back towards the coast:  St Augustine, FL.  We stayed at Anastasia State Park campground, where Andy perfected his fire-building techniques (using Duraflames, of course).  The temperatures have been surprisingly cool, so we’ve been happy that we invested in some winter clothes prior to leaving on our trip.

St Augustine is a beautiful, historic town that’s well worth your time to stroll through.  There’s also an old fort – Castillo de San Marcos – which is a National Monument that’s right in downtown.  Fort Matanzas is nearby if you wanted to see another fort and National Monument.

We enjoyed our visit to the lighthouse, which included a climb to the top:

The beaches are packed sand you can drive on.  Unlike our sand in South Florida.

We had several family members from Orlando and friends from Jacksonville come visit us during our short stay here.

Here are some of our friends from Jacksonville who came down to visit us at the campground.
